Badminton's most gripping matches this week have been a string of near-misses and upsets by doubles pairs from China, Indonesia, India and Britain and other countries, and the tension has been down to strong teamwork on both sides.

Patty Mills really wants no part of the talk that he turns into a different player when he puts on the uniform of the Australian men’s national basketball team. Here’s who he is: The leader of an Australian team that certainly has enough talent to end the country’s 0-for-forever medal drought in major international competition, the quarterback of a team that came to Tokyo believing it could win a gold medal, and one of the two flagbearers chosen by his nation to carry the colors into these Olympics — the first indigenous Australian to have that honor. — Mills has three 30-point games in his NBA career, spanning 829 contests.
