They started the tournament slowly and they didn't perform properly in the first three games. The turnaround came after the Brazil-loss. Being down 2-5 against Japan and playing horrendously, turning that game around and winning it was the most important moment of the tournament.
Mandić and Mitrović were really good tonight. The defending was incredible for large portions of the game and that enabled Mitrović to make a lot of saves from much more comfortable positions.
The celebrations after the game were just incredibly awesome. It meant so much for them to win this roud:
I missed most of the 3rd but they are still playing scared, missing layups and easy dunks. It all started going downhill for Serbia in the 1st when cousins committed an offensive foul on Bircevic but Bircevic got the foul and cousins got to shoot freethrows. Cant do muxh when durant is having the game of his life making 3s from 10 feet behind the line
