Olympics: men's basketball, 8 a.m., USA One of America's proudest moments was when the original 1992 Dream Team beat Angola 116-42 in Barcelona. Watch these two world superpowers renew their storied rivalry.

Olympics: swimming, beach volleyball, women's gymnastics, 8 p.m., NBC Four swimming finals and the women's team gymnastics final. We're beginning to think NBC likes to televise athletes who aren't wearing a lot of clothes.

Smash Lab, 10 p.m., Discovery The team examines the technology behind supposed crash-proof cars. If we know our pseudo-scientific Discovery Channel series — and we think we do — we anticipate much of the smashy-smashy.
