Surely it will be on TV? They've got three channels showing the Olympic stuff overnight.

I'd just like to know which of the three channels it will be on to set the timer to record it. Chances are not the main one so probably 7TWO or 7mate.

Completely fired up for this now Bogut is playing but definitely not over confident.

If our offense looks to have no system and we start going all ISO ball I don't know if I can stay up to watch.

The TV guide says it's on the normal ch 7, but Ch 7's Olympic Twitter account just said 7TWO, so who knows really !!

Agree with Zodiac - will tape 7mate and 7two.

Some honesty would be nice in terms of being told which channel will be showing what. I'll be very pissed if I record two channels and it's on the third.

Cheers thanks for the info. I'll try 7TWO because unfortunately I've only got single tuner PVR so can't record two channels at the same time. Pretty unlikely the full game will be on the main channel but better chance on the secondary channel.

Thanks again!

This will be a huge test against France for mine they are the likely silver medallist with Spain missing M. Gasol & Ibaka so will tell us where we are at. The big issue is we're always slow out of the gates to start these tournaments and run right into a likely medallist first up.

Stoked Bogut's playing straightens us right up.

I've got it working on the app but the commentary is virtually non-existent. Why can't we get the Channel 7 commentators? The Foxtel app was way better 4 years ago.

Anyway great start so far by the Boomers - our D is impressive and France look rusty. May have worked to our advantage drawing them first.

Great start by the Boomers, although got lucky with a few terrible passes/fumbles by France.

Refs already made two shockers when a French player has taken it out of court and giving it back to them

That was ridiculously surprising in a good way. Couldn't believe how smooth our offence was and how terrible France's defence was. Delly to Bogut for the lob was on repeat, Mills awesome shooting and energy and Bogut proved his worth with some beautiful passing.

Lisch also proved his worth with some very timely threes.

Doesn't get any easier though with Serbia next.

Well done to the Boomers. I had expected France to put up more of a fight, but credit to the Boomers for some excellent execution and solid D. Some of the passing was superb. Bogut helped enormously at both ends. And we did it playing a slower tempo than usual; we out-Euroed them.

Lemanis really extracted maximum value from our main guys - Bogut is just a ridiculously great fit!

Assisting on >75% of their FGs is indicative of how beautiful our offense was to watch, France's lack of interest defensively notwithstanding.

That really sets us up well so long as we can knock off China and Venesuala. Even if we drop to Serbia, the 20pt margin will be a big help in the event of a three-way tie.

Well worth the sleepless night.

That's a huge win! So many times the media hype the boomers up only to lose key games. They actually went against that trend. They must stay locked in now and be a force. Just a great win to start, and a healthy bogut makes all the difference.

Couldn't be more happy with the Boomers. That's exactly the style they've been building towards and they executed it to almost perfection.

Serbia will be tougher to disrupt, they'll be better at picking that D apart with the ball in Teodosic or Jokic's hands, but if Bogut hits repeat on this morning we are every chance.

I'm concerned that all the guys we play at the power forward spot are too slow. Despite his inexperience, Simmons would've helped with his athleticism in that spot.

That was one of the better Boomers games ive seen.

The highlight was the timing in the options of those offensive sets and pin point execution.

The one that really stuck out was where they looked at three or four options then scored on the reversal....bloody beautiful basketball...they had the French defenders chasing shadows !!

Andre & coaching staff....im impressed !!

Gotta give credit to Lemanis, that's the best Aussie performance I've seen in a long time - I expected much worse given our lead up games. France just way overplayed the 3 and gave up back cut after back cut... No idea why they went away from iso Tony Parker either, because that's about all that was working for them.

It was funny watching Martin try D up on Parker for a stretch there. Bit on about 3 fakes and lost him repeatedly.

Putting aside the perhaps life altering hairstyles of Aron Baynes that was probably the best game I've ever seen the Boomers play. It wasn't Heal & Gaze getting hot from outside it was pure basketball execution the back cuts made France look second rate and to be fair their horrible defence helped to make us look fantastic.

Massive props to Bogut didn't think he had a game like that still left in him.

That was outstanding! Everything worked at both ends for the whole game. France were out played and out coached. I certainly didn't expect such a comprehensive win, particularly as it was the first game of the tournament. Bogut fitted in waaay better than I anticipated. Starting him and Baynes together turned out to be a master stroke. I also thought the Boomers looked like a really tight team. They weathered Parker's second quarter heroics and Ingles' 4th foul without departing from the team defence and team offence.Individual work rates were high for 40 minutes. Very impressive opening and they'll have their tails up against Serbia. Go Boomers!
