Despite a scare from the tiny southeast Asian nation, Croatia was able to down the Philippines 81-78 in overtime in the opening game of the FIBA World Cup. Saric contributed nicely, finishing the contest with a loaded stat line: 10 points, 9 rebounds, and four assists.
The bad? Saric fouled out with just over two minutes to go in the fourth quarter, leaving his national team to fend without him in the overtime period. From Sean O'Connor's recap:
Mario Hezonja was a DNP in Saturday's contest.
Croatia plays Argentina today at 7:30 AM, and might be a real good test of what Saric can do against NBA talent like Luis Scola, Pablo Prigioni and (FORMER SIXER) Andres Nocioni.
As always, the thread is yours to discuss.
