Slovenia overcome injuries to claim historic title in Dragic's swansong

Watch Kristaps Porzingis' 34-point night in elimination game in EuroBasket

Despite injuries to two of their starting players, Slovenia were able to hold off Serbia to cap off an unbeaten EuroBasket tournament.

Goran Dragic ended his worldwide career in style as his 35 points led Slovenia past Serbia, 93-85, to claim their first-ever EuroBasket title.

Dragic, who plays for the NBA's Miami Heat, lit up the second period and finished the game with 35 points, seven rebounds and three assists in what is likely to be his final game for the national team, should he make good on his pledge to now step away from global basketball.

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

However, Slovenians managed to go on a 10-point run to claim victory.

They said the fighters had sneaked into the capital from northern Sinai but did not say whether they were members of ISIL. A security guard gestures near the site of an attack that killed at least 26 people in Minya, Egypt May 26, 2017.

The thriller at Sinan Erdem Dome, Istanbul, saw undefeated Slovenia taking on Serbia, who only lost once in group stage.

In the match for third place in the great game brothers Gazala enabled Spain to extend its medal streak at the Championships to six tournaments. Pau Gasol and Spain, however, were too strong in the end.

"We were chasing a medal for 25 years and now we have gold - it's incredible", said Prepelic.

Bogdan Bogdanovic, who is set to join the Sacramento Kings next season, led Serbia with 22 points.

"You want to play well in the Final".
