2021 Olympic Men's Basketball Knockout Bracket

A draw took place following the completion of the group-stage games to determine quarterfinal matchups. The winners of each group and the best second-place team were placed in one pot and while the two remaining second-place teams and two best third-placed teams were placed in another pot. Teams from the same group cannot play each other in the quarterfinal round.

Slovenia is the second favorite to win gold partially because of its stellar play so far, but mostly because it's on the opposite side of the bracket from the United States. Spain conversely is 20-1 to win gold because it needs to get past the U.S., then likely Australia, just to reach the final.

Here's the eight-team bracket:


Slovenia vs. France
USA vs. Australia


France vs. Italy
Slovenia vs. Germany

USA vs. Spain
Australia vs. Argentina
