Slovenia made it to the quarter-finals of the basketball tournament at the Tokyo Olympics after defeating the hosts Japan 116:81 for what is their second win in as many matches.
Led by the NBA All-Star Luka Dončić, Slovenia were in the lead throughout the game. With plenty of motivated players in action, they were effective on the offensive and solid in defence. All 12 players scored points; Dončić contributed 25 and Zoran Dragić 24. They will face Spain in the final game of the group phase on Sunday.
