Basketball superstar Luka Doncic silenced Europe with another phenomenal performance.
The Slovenian went wild and scored a unique 47 points, which is the best achievement in European basketball in 65 years.
The Belgian Eddie Terras holds the record in this regard, who in 1957, when Bulgaria hosted the EuroBasket, scored 63 points in one game for his country in a match against Albania.
Today, Doncic scored more than half the points for his Slovenia, in the 88-82 victory over France.
Goran Dragic also came to Doncic’s aid with his 14 points, but practically throughout the game the Dallas Mavericks star carried his national team on his back.
Almost half of his points – 22 in total – came in just 12 minutes at the end of the first and the beginning of the second half.
The victory guarantees Slovenia the first position in group “B”, from which Germany, France and Lithuania also continue.
From our “A” group, Spain, Turkey, Montenegro and Belgium go to the eliminations, and in addition to Bulgaria, which was eliminated earlier today, the hosts from Georgia also finish their participation.
Thus, four of the round of 16 matches are already clear, and they are as follows:
Germany – Montenegro
Spain – Lithuania
Slovenia – Belgium
Turkey – France
Tomorrow, the final rankings of the remaining two groups will become clear.
