Cleveland Cavaliers center Ante Zizic provided a helping hand by scoring 15 points and grabbing seven rebounds in 18 minutes. Efes guard Krunoslav Simon added 12 points plus six rebounds and L.A. Lakers center Ivica Zubac 10 points and nine rebounds in 17:18.
Blaz Mesicek had 14 points, Blaz Mahkovic 11 and Jacob Cebasek 11 for Slovenia.
