Goran Dragic leads Slovenia to Eurobasket glory

In his final worldwide 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. However, as the fourth quarter wore on Dragic exhausted noticeably and Serbia were able to take the lead halfway through the period.

Slovenia captain Goran Dragic scored 35 points and won the tournament MVP award. But Klemen Prepelic put Slovenia ahead for good, 84-82, with 2:20 to go.

The 31-year-old Dragic, who announced he would retire from global play at the end of EuroBasket, put up those 35 points in just 28 minutes (20 in the second quarter alone) as he nearly single-handedly kept Slovenia afloat through three quarters.

"He was cramping on the sidelines", Slovenia coach Igor Kokoskov told fiba.basketball, the official website for basketball's governing body, after the game.
