The Pacers got what they wanted in Miami as the duel between Bojan Bodganovic and Goran Dragic turned into a one side affair.

The Croatian sharpshooter scored 26 points, Lithuanian Domantas Sabonis added 8 points and 10 rebounds and the Pacers embarrassed the Heat in the second half on the way to a 120-95 rout Sunday night. “Terrible game, from the first minute to the last,” Slovenian Goran Dragic who had just 8 points and 4 assists said.

Rookie Lauri Markkanen, the new hope of Finland, scored a career-best 26 points for the Bulls in a matchup of the NBA’s youngest teams. However, six Phoenix players in double figures and the Suns handed the Bulls their sixth loss in seven games, 113-105 on Sunday night. Former EuroLeague star Mike James scored 15 points for the winners.

And in LA, while Lonzo Ball registered his second triple-double, the Lakers got an easy win over Denver after Serb rising star Nikola Jokic was ejected.

Here are last night’s results and the Euro-scorers.
