Serbia beat Lithuania 72 – 68 in a preparation game that took place in Belgrade. 18.150 people that attended the match in a nearly packed Stark Arena”.

Bogdan Bogdanovic scored 18 points while his Sacramento Kings teammate Nemanja Bjelica added 15 points. Nikola Jokic scored 13 points in his first game with the national team after the 2016 Olympic Games.

Jokic also provided a rather rare – for him – kind of showtime…

Marius Grigonis (18 points) and Mindaugas Kuzminskas (12 points) stood out from the Lithuanian squad.

Denver Nuggets head coach Mike Malone and General Manager Arturas Karnisovas attended the game.
