Heat's Goran Dragic named EuroBasket2017 MVP as Slovenia wins title

The Miami Heat point guard averaged 22.6 points (fourth overall in the tournament) with 4.4 rebounds and 5.1 assists as he earned tournament MVP honors. He was scoreless in the final quarter.

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

With Dragic out, Serbia briefly took the lead at 79-78.

Klemen Prepelic claimed 21 points and US-born Anthony Randolph, who only became a Slovenian citizen in June, had 11.

The 31-year-old Dragic, who announced he would retire from worldwide 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. "They brought the National Basketball Association speed on the floor", Serbia coach Aleksandar Djordjevic said.
