Team Slovenia’s match against Argentina made headlines after the Dallas Mavericks All-Star, Luka Doncic tried to break the single-game Olympic record of 55 points in his debut itself. Doncic dropped 48 points as if he was still running on the NBA playoffs energy. Slovenia riding on the star’s energy won against Argentina with 118-100 to set up a match with the hosts next.
The Mavs player shot 18-of-29 from the field and tallied 11 rebounds with five assists as well against the Athens 2004 champions. But Slovenia would be celebrating their maiden Games victory in fashion after Doncic posted second-most points ever in a single Olympic game, we would see him in action soon and maybe next time Oscar Schmidt's OR of 55 would be history.
