Luka Doncic scored 48 points in his first ever game in the Olympics, leading Slovenia to a 118-100 victory over Argentina. The point total tied the record for most points in an Olympic game with Eddie Palubinskas, who had 48 for Australia in 1976.
"I don't care about records," Doncic said. "We got a win and that's what we came here for."
Slovenia has been a country on the rise, winning the EuroBasket title in 2017 and then qualifying for Tokyo by winning one of the Olympic qualifying tournaments earlier this month.
