Tonight, Luka Doncic and Slovenia take on the 2004 Olympic winners, Argentina, in a men’s basketball game that will determine which country will represent South America at the Olympic Games in 2021.
Both teams are playing their first game of the tournament and will be hoping to win in order to advance to the next round. The Argentinians have lost two straight games, to the United States and Nigeria. Meanwhile, Slovenia has a perfect record.
Luka Doncic, the Slovenian national team’s rising star who has been tearing up the NBA since 2019, is the team’s best bet for capturing the gold medal. Doncic is a versatile player who can score, rebound, and distribute, making him a major challenge for the Argentine defence.
The Slovenians also have a dangerous player named Zoran Dragic. Dragic, who plays with an offensive focus, can force opponents to commit mistakes in their defensive positioning.
Center The Slovenian basketball squad also features Mike Tobey, who will likely be responsible for defending the paint and facilitating the offence by setting screens for the club’s playmakers and scorers.
