Luka Doncic led Slovenia to a 104-83 win over Estonia in the FIBA Basketball World Cup 2023 European Qualifiers on Thursday.
Donic nearly recorded a triple-double in the blowout win, finishing with 25 points, 11 rebounds and 8 assists. Meanwhile, Goran Dragic chipped in an uber-efficient 19 points, 6 assists and 3 threes in just 18 minutes (while shooting 80% from the field and 75% from three-point range).
"We are following Luka and Goran, and they are showing the way and how we can win," Slovenia's Klemen Prepelic said after the win.
Estonia was leading late in the first quarter, 23-18, until Kerr Kriisa started talking trash to Doncic. Soon after, Doncic led Slovenia on a 17-0 run, giving them a 35-23 lead.
From there, Slovenia pulled away and the outcome was never in question.
For Estonia, Kriisa had 14 points and 5 assists, while Maik-Kalev Kotsar and Kristian Kullamae each chipped in 10 points.
Next up, Slovenia will face Germany on Sunday.
