In a thrilling FIBA World Cup quarter-final clash, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander showcased his basketball prowess, leading Canada to a hard-fought victory against Slovenia, a team spearheaded by Luka Doncic.
The 25-year-old Oklahoma City Thunder point guard had a standout performance, scoring a game-high 31 points, grabbing 10 rebounds, and dishing out 4 assists.
Despite this significant win, Gilgeous-Alexander remains focused on the ultimate prize: the gold medal. “It’s an honor. Just wearing this jersey is an honor itself, and to win is another good feeling. But like I said before, we’re not satisfied; we want to win gold,” he emphasized.
Canada’s journey continues as they prepare to face Serbia in the semi-finals, following Serbia’s victory over Lithuania.
