I just hope Doncic isn't able to have a huge game and drag Slovenia into the final, I wouldn't like our chances of beating France.

Major difference so far is the carry on of the benches. Makes me think maybe the boomers could've done the same.

29 to 27 Slovenia up.
Doncic already with 10p, 3r and 5a.

Does anyone know who the Australian work experience kid working the game with grandpa is? Still better than Heal or Homicide through.

Absolutely Q-land the guy is a superstar at world and NBA level.
Shits over Simmons. Yet only 22 years old.

See that contingent of people in the crowd in highlighted yellow? Looks like the boomers came to watch who their playing next.

Gobert is just a huge factor, gets away with a lot fouls as well.

Nic Batum is such a good player. Amazing on defense and always makes the right play on offense. He's Frances version of Kay/Thybulle.

If Doncic's injury is serious we may have an easier shot at bronze.

And right after I post that Batum gets the game saving block.

Let's go boomers get that bronze.

On replay, Batum's block is even better in that he managed to avoid contact on a hard close out and still managed to make such a clean swat.

Doncic out will help Australia big time.

Still thought France were slightly better.
Double cracking game.

Why were Zoran's minutes limited? Just foul trouble or something else?

Great game, France lucky that Luka had a bad shooting night and Slo overall Ft %, two great games ahead, hopefully we beat Slo and finally get that medal.

Doncic ender with 16p, 10r, 18a.

Dude is averaging triple double on tournament with 25/10/10.

Don't think Doncic is really hurt the commentators just talked themselves into believing that to justify why he wasn't shooting.

Slovenia had 2 techs to France one and lost by a point

Doncic is too good to have two bad shooting nights in a row. But if he's injured and won't shoot then that's a different story

Ian what did Slovenian commentary say about Doncic's non-shooting towards the end?

Reply #865934 | Report this post

Why did Doncic pass up the wide open 3 with under 3 minutes left if he's not injured, just lacking confidence?

Reply #865935 | Report this post

Captain Muric and the commentary all said that he decided to pass the ball to open Prepelic/Blazic and did not force the step back since he had a bad shooting night. No word about injury, Luka will play.

Obviously after you are 5/18 FG and 2/9 3pt, the better option might be to pass it to shooter like Prepelic, who actually scored. I do not think Luka lacks confidence, just looking for best option at that moment. I guess.

Luke has played a lot basketball, got guarded very physically, I cannot see him not playing but he looks like he needs a good rest.

No I think Luka was obviously hurt, was seen grabbing his shoulder and wrist numerous times throughout the game.

It's pretty obvious he's banged up and suffering a couple of niggles

But those shouldn't worry someone like him

The real question is whether there was a physical reason for him not putting up shots in a Ben Simmons-esque last 5 minutes. Did he hurt his wrist/arm when he banged into the sidescreen? It looked to be his left hand/fingers/wrist that suffered the damage. He shot free throws immediately afterwards but don't think he shot again after that?

He either looked hurt or gassed.

Unfortunate for Slovenia

I was looking forward to Luka vs the USA.

Lukas teammates stepped up big. They'll be tough to beat for bronze.

Good teams are dangerous right after losing a key player. Everyone else will be trying to step up.
