With the first day of men’s Olympic basketball now complete, each team has four games remaining in group play.

Day one had a few minor scares, but ultimately went the way it was expected. 

Team USA struggled early on against France, only leading by one point after the first quarter. Durant, James and co. quickly turned up the pressure though, and went on to defeat France by 27 points.

Brazil was the heavy favorite to defeat Australia, but instead finished with a narrow four-point victory.

The other favorites, Argentina and Spain, took care of business and won their opening-round games with ease.

The next phase in this tournament will be held on Tuesday. 

Here is when and where you can watch the remainder of group play for the men’s tournament.
