    It's grammatical, but I would phrase it as,

    Did you see the Olympic basketball match between the US and China?

    I am making up these random sentences and questions (no comma here) because I am trying to learn and also trying to teach English to members of my family.

    Thanks.
    Note the corrections above.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Very few of the many sentences you have posted have been either natural English or the sort of thing native speakers would say in everyday life. If you are trying to help members of your family speak English. stick to shorter sentences that people might actually want/need to say.

    Just that one small change would be my suggestion. Teechar's post #3 is better though.
