Croatia Beat Dirk Nowitzki Led Germany in Zagreb

hrvThe Croatian national basketball team has beaten Germany, led by NBA star Dirk Nowitzki, at Zagreb Arena on Friday night 74-72 in overtime…

Dario Šarić led the way for Croatia last night with 18 points and 10 assists. NBA star Bojan Bogdanović was also very impressive scoring 15 points, whilst Luka Žorić shot 13 points on the night to end Germany’s run of 6 consecutive wins. Nowitzki scored 11 points.

The match, which was a warm-up for the upcoming Eurobasket which starts in just over two weeks, was played in front of a large crowd as many wanted to catch a glimpse of the NBA stars on both sides.

“In both halfs we started bad because we wanted to do too much. Apart from that I am satisfied,” said coach Velimir Perasović.
