New, comments

Marcin Gortat may be heading to a three-week break before joining the Phoenix Suns for training camp, but at least he finished with a great game: 19 points, 12 rebounds and 3 blocks.

Gortat finally had a reason to smile yesterday, as Poland got their only win of Eurobasket against his Phoenix teammate Goran Dragic, 71-61 over Slovenia.

For the first time all tournament, Gortat's teammates played well and made their jumpers. Without that, Poland had struggled with teams packing the paint to defend the bigs.

Slovenia, already moving forward to the next round, came out flat. Goran Dragic had only 9 points against 0 assists (after averaging 15 and 6.3 coming in).

Slovenia plays Italy in the next round on Thursday, while Gortat rests his foot until training camp for the Suns.
