The winner out of the Serbia and Croatia game would take on Spain in the next round, and it was a close game between the two regional rivals.
Serbia were holding a 7-point lead with 3 minutes left in the fourth quarter, when two small men made a big difference in helping Croatia change the situation. Marko Popovic knocked in a three-pointer before an extra-ordinary pass from Roko Ukic assisted to cut the lead by two. With 1 minute left, it seemed as though the game would be decided from the penalty line, where Serbia made 3 out of four foul shots but Popovic made all his four - putting his side back into contention by a single digit. A Serbian passing mistake then put Popovic back on free throw again, but he only made one point making it 70-70. And Serbia took their chance on a Croatian mistake for an easy basket. With Popovic nailing the later two free throws, it came to Serbia's turn and Aleksander Rasic was fouled. He deliberately shot wide after gaining one point to run out the last second, as Serbia won it 73-72.
