Patty Mills was unstoppable vs Slovenia and led Australia to the bronze medal in the Olympic Tournament.

Mills went for a game-high 42 points (15-31 shooting, nine assists), as Australia rallied past Slovenia in the third place game (93-107).

The Australians were in control for the majority of the night, yet the Slovenians cut the deficit to three midway through the fourth quarter (80-83).

Yet, Mills and Australia stood tall and closed the game on a 13-24 run to seal the deal and win their first-ever men’s Olympic basketball medal.

On the other hand, Slovenia (Luka Doncic 22 points, eight rebounds, seven assists) exceeded the expectations and completed their Olympics run with the fourth place.

Earlier today, Team USA survived a late thriller vs France (87-82), winning its fourth straight gold medal in the Olympics.
