In his final global game, Dragic, 31, scored 35 points in the first three quarters but was forced from the game with the cramps in the fourth and had to watch his team hang on for its first EuroBasket title. In the middle of the final quarter the Serbs after a long chase took the lead, but Slovenia immediately organized dash 12:0 and shut down all questions about the winners of Eurobasket 2017.

Slovenia won its first European basketball championship on Sunday, defeating Serbia 93-85 in Istanbul behind 35 points by Goran Dragic.

As Dragic limped to the bench with an injury, Klemen Prepelic took over, grabbing rebounds and scoring two crucial free throws as Slovenia dug deep to take the lead again and seal a historic victory over their bitter rivals in their first major final. Pau Gasol and Spain, however, were too strong in the end.
