Slovenia win EuroBasket 2017 title

Luka Doncic

He had been visibly tiring, missing all three shots and the one free throw he took in the final quarter. Pau Gasol and Spain, however, were too strong in the end.

Porzingis dropped 34 points and pulled down six boards in Latvia's quarterfinal game against Dragic's Slovenia, but it wasn't enough (that was the same game where KP got into it with Anthony Randolph).

Slovenia overcame injuries to stars Goran Dragic and Luka Doncic to outlast Serbia 93-85 and win their first FIBA EuroBasket title after a pulsating Final, according to the official website of FIBA.

With Dragic out, Serbia briefly took the lead at 79-78.

In his final worldwide game, Slovenia captain Goran Dragic played a masterful opening three quarters to score 35 points to nearly single-handedly give his team the edge.


"We are an uptempo team ... the importance of the game shouldn't change what we do", said Slovenia's Serb coach, Igor Kokoskov.

Slovenia's victory push was nearly derailed when 18-year-old Luka Doncic hobbled off with an injury with his team leading by eight points midway through the third quarter. "He told me 'Be prepared for the press conference and say something deep and smart.' Well, I can't say anything".

Earlier, Spain defeated Russian Federation 93-85 to take third place.

Russia: Shved (18), Brain (14 + 10 rebounds), Dmitry Kulagin (10 + 7 assists).
