The heat is underway for Australia and USA's matchup in one of the most anticipated Men's Basketball game in the Rio Olympic 2016 set today at 18:00 EST. The Knicks team is set to play simultaneously with the NBA and the Raptors, as star Carmelo Anthony is on to beating Jordan's reputation as the "Greatest International Player of All Time.

With height 6-8, an outstanding academic record at Syracuse University and a definite knack for the New York Knicks, he remains a Knicks star here and there. Besides the semi-aggressive and learned attack styles, Anthony was born to be in the Forward position.

A 3-time Olympic medalist in 2004, 2008 and 2012, Anthony has been favored to earn the spot of being the "Best International Player of All Time", a recognition even Jordan himself tried hard to earn for years.

That was off to be cemented in his 14-point performance against Venezuela on Monday. Right there and then, he surpassed Michael Jordan's all-time Olympic scoring list, CBS Sports reported.

However, the Aussies are still no ordinary offensives as they have proven in the previous games in Group A how versatile their teams are when it comes to first-hand defenses. Defensing- that is what the Aussies are best at. The odds are that the Aussies would definitely not make it easy for the Americans despite Anthony's confident advances, NBC Olympics reported.

Nevertheless, it is still very early to draw figures. But, with the NBCSN covering the live game today at 18:00 EST, no single scene will be missed.
