It was close for a half and a little bit into the third quarter but when Croatia took over, they really took over. Spain were just 32-27 down at the half and 36-33 behind early in the third before falling away in the face of an offensive onslaught from Croatia. In the end Croatia ran out 80-55 winners with four players with double-doubles.
