Team USA head coach Mike Krzyzewski has pushed the right buttons with his loaded NBA squad.

As expected, Team USA is through to the semifinals of the 2012 Olympic Men’s Basketball tournament.

The collection of NBA superstars has dominated its opposition so far, as Team USA has won all six of its games by an average of 37.3 points.

Head coach Mike Krzyzewski has gotten the group to play excellent team basketball. Team USA’s advantages in scoring, rebounding and limiting turnovers is why no team has defeated it. Only Team Lithuania has challenged the Americans so far.

Now in the semifinal round, Team USA’s biggest roadblocks are ahead. Only the best teams in the world remain.

International basketball has closed the gap between itself and the NBA. With dominant performances over Argentina and then in the gold medal game, though, Team USA can once again push the rest of the basketball world down a few rungs on the ladder.

In this slideshow, I preview the three teams remaining in the tournament that Team USA can play—Team Argentina, Team Russia and Team Spain. I also provide all the television information you need to know, so that you can find these games in your local listings with ease.
