The 2012 Olympic Games will kick off on Friday, but the United States men's basketball team still has one more exhibition game to go before they truly begin their quest for a gold medal in London. They will take on Spain on Tuesday afternoon in what may well be their toughest challenge yet.

Team USA has played four exhibition games so far, winning all of them, although their most recent game -- against Argentina -- was only decided by six points; much closer than the team or head coach Mike Krzyzewski would have wanted it.

They will play Spain on Tuesday in Barcelona in a rematch of the gold medal game in Beijing in 2008. This may end up being a preview of the finals in this year's Summer Games.

Tuesday's game is scheduled to begin at 4:30 p.m. ET and will be televised nationally on ESPN 2. You can also watch a live stream of the game via Watch ESPN, provided you have access to your cable provider information.
