Doncic leads Slovenia into Olympic basketball quarter-finals

NBA star Luka Doncic scored 25 points as Slovenia comfortably beat Japan 116-81 to qualify for the quarter-finals of the Tokyo Olympics on Thursday.

Dallas Mavericks guard Doncic also grabbed seven rebounds and got help on scoring from Zoran Dragic, the older brother of Miami Heat player Goran, who chipped in 24 points.

Rui Hachimura did his best to keep Japan in the game with 34 points and seven rebounds.

Doncic had scored 48 points in Slovenia’s opening victory against 2004 gold medallists Argentina.

Spain can also book their place in the quarter-finals if they beat Argentina later on Thursday.
