It should come as no surprise that Luka Doncic and Slovenia advanced to the quarterfinals of EuroBasket 2022, following in the footsteps of France, by defeating Belgium (88-72) on Saturday in Berlin, the same city in which Spain defeated Lithuania in the elimination round. The Lithuanians were upset by the Roja in rebuilding in overtime (102-94), led by their naturalized American leader Lorenzo Brown, who scored 28 points. The Roja advanced to the round of 16 by passing through a mouse hole.
In a victory that took longer to materialize than was anticipated, the reigning champions from Slovenia only pulled away from the Belgians in the final quarter of the game. The Belgians even had a brief opportunity to pass in front of the scoreboard (64-63). Doncic racked up 35 points against the fourth team in Group A just three days after posting the second-highest performance in the annals of the competition (47 points) against France. He has now won at least 35 units in each of his last three games in a row.
“The maestro of the Dallas Mavericks confirmed that he had never given the idea any consideration. “A lot of people said it would be an easy fit, but I never thought about it,” “In the last round, we were able to win thanks to our increased effort, although it was not an easy battle. “Very used (about 36 minutes),” Luka Magic will have four days to recover before their quarter-final match on Wednesday against the winner of the round of 16 matches between Ukraine and Poland, which is set to take place on Sunday.
Germany too felt the chills from the news. Despite starting the final quarter with a very comfortable lead, Dennis Schroder’s Nationalmannschaft (22 points) saw Montenegro pull back dangerously to three points (89-77). This put Montenegro in a hazardous position (67-50). In the end, she prevailed 85-79). Greece, home of NBA sensation Giannis Antetokounmpo, and Germany should reach the finish line together in the quarterfinals unless Germany makes an unlikely mistake against the Czech Republic on Sunday (8:45 p.m.).
