Luka Doncic, Slovenia won’t advance to Paris Olympics

Luka DOncic reacts

After falling just short in the NBA Finals, Luka Doncic will not be in the Olympics either after Slovenia was eliminated in a 96-68 loss Saturday to Greece, which is led by Giannis Antetokounmpo.

Doncic scored 21 points, but Slovenia fell in the semifinals of the Paris Olympics qualifying tournament at Piraeus, Greece.

Antetokounmpo scored 13 points in 21 minutes, while Thomas Walkup scored 19 points as Greece advanced to the tournament final to face the winner of a semifinal between the Dominican Republic and Croatia. The winner of the final will advance to Paris.

Other men’s basketball qualifying tournaments are taking place at Puerto Rico, Spain and Latvia.

Doncic, who was hobbled by multiple injuries throughout the NBA playoffs, helped the Mavericks to one victory in the NBA Finals before they were overcome by the Boston Celtics.

Greece took control early Saturday, taking a 13-0 lead and were never threatened after leading by as many as 23 in the opening half. Greece led by 16 points at the start of the fourth quarter, allowing the team to take it easy on Antetokounmpo in advance of the tournament final.
