With its 27-point slaughter of the French on Sunday, Team USA won its 10th straight Olympic contest. Today's game against Tunisia will push the streak to 11. The Tunisians are a scrappy bunch but talent-wise are out of their depth here. This is their first trip to the Olympics, and they lost their first game in pool play to Nigeria. In the 2010 FIBA Worlds they went 0-5.

So don't expect a nail-biter, but hey, here's some good news: you can actually watch this one without having to be awake at some ridiculous hour. The 10:15 p.m. London tip-off translates to 2:15 p.m. in California, perfect for students, stay-at-home moms and dads and the flexibly employed. NBC's shifting, frequently delayed coverage has draped my understanding of time in some sort of weird mental distortion field, which is my way of saying: I think you'll be able to catch this game live on one or another of their networks but I honestly have no idea. Ryan Seacrest will be along to let you know.
