Spain guard Alberto Diaz proved to be the key on both sides of the court for Sergio Scariolo’s team in the semifinal against Germany.

“Playing the final is incredible, a unique sensation. The dream of every athlete, of all kids. If they ask you to sign for this in every moment of your life, you’ll instantly do it: it’s an enormous joy, and we’re super happy. But there’s a game left and we want to win it,” Diaz said after the game, via Eurohoops.
