Cameron Bairstow scored 17 points on 7-of-13 shooting with nine rebounds, one steal and one block as the Australians rolled over China by the score of 93-68.
It was a quiet, balanced effort from the team aside from Andrew Bogut (left knee soreness, rest). Matthew Dellavedova had six points and nine assists, Aron Baynes scored 12 points with four boards, one steal and one block, and Joe Ingles scored four points with two boards and four assists. Australia will advance to the medal rounds and the only question now is what seed they will get, and it’s our hope that we see a rematch with Team USA at some point. Yi Jianlian scored 20 points for China in the loss, as their hopes of advancing hinge on beating Serbia in their final game and also getting some help.
Andrew Bogut has some soreness in his left knee. Aussie spokesman said team is "managing" him. #Rio2016
