Luka Doncic took over once again and led Slovenia to the semi-finals of the Olympic Tournament.

Doncic flirted with the triple-double (20 points, 8/18 shooting, eight rebounds, 11 assists) and helped Slovenia crush Germany in the quarter-finals (94-70).

Germany remained competitive for three quarters (44-37, 60-50), but Slovenia never looked back in the fourth quarter.

With Doncic leading the way, Slovenia outscored Germany 28-16 in the final part of the game and cruised to the victory.

This was the 17th straight win for Slovenia with Doncic on the lineup (17-0).

Slovenia advanced to the semi-finals and will face Italy or France on Thursday.
