Last month, Spurs World reported about Erazem Lorbek joining the Slovenian national team at the EuroBasket. It seems like it’s paying off.
In fact, Montenegro entered final quarter with a 61-60 lead, the fourth quarter was hotly contested, as both teams won’t give in. The game was tied at 79-79 with under 3 minutes left to play, when Slovenia finished the game with 7-0 run to win their opener.
Erazem Lorbek led Slovenia with 14 points and five rebounds, Goran Dragic had 12 points, while Samo Udrih added 11.
Nikola Pekovic ended up with 21 points in the losing effort as Montenegro lost their second straight game.
