Biggest basketball games on Australian soil

Where does this Boomers v USA double header sit among biggest basketball games/events held on Australian soil?

Can't go past the 2000 Olympic games, but by my reckoning this is the next biggest thing we've ever seen here. Keen for a history lesson tho.

2000 Olympics, opals v USA. Jackson at 17 deserved the gold she was magnificent, rest of team not so much.

A nice recap of the only Team USA vs Boomers game in Australia until tonight, a warm up game in Melbourne prior to the 2000 Sydney Olympics.

Agreed. 2000 Olympics men's tournament was the biggest due to Dream Team featuring followed now by this.

Or if you break it down between biggest tournament and biggest standalone game on our soil then you'd have:

2000 men's Olympics as the tourney
one of these two games (depending on result), if you exclude Olympic warmups and consider them linked to the main tournament.
