In what's probably the most expected outcome at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro — aside from the general chaos surrounding the organization of the event — the U.S. men's basketball team is poised to win another gold medal. 

Their roster is stacked, and it doesn't even include NBA MVPs LeBron James or Stephen Curry. Instead, they've got the likes of Kevin Durant, Carmelo Anthony, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green leading the fray. (In other words, they still have a plethora of NBA All-Stars.)

As such, the Team USA games should be entertaining matches in Rio — but how can fans watch the games online?

You can check out the schedule for the basketball games — as well as the rest of the livestream schedule for other Olympic sports — here

So if you keep the schedule and a computer handy, tuning in to the basketball games in Rio will be a slam dunk.
