Luka Doncic makes serious allegations against the referees after the defeat to Canada

Luka Doncic and Slovenia missed out on a spot in the semifinals against Canada. The Dallas Mavericks star was ruled out in the fourth quarter. After the match, the 24-year-old showed understanding, but once again blamed the officials.

Doncic, who scored 26 points (8/20 FG) in the quarter-finals, but his Slovenian team said: “Everyone knows why I am frustrated. Matches with the national team are very emotional for me and I often cannot control myself.” Defeat cannot be prevented.

“One of the referees said to one of my team-mates: ‘We won’t call fouls today because he will complain anyway.’” Playmaker reported. “I don't think that's right. I know I complain a lot, but it's not fair. They were very physical with me today.”

In all, Doncic committed eight fouls in less than 30 minutes of action and went to the free throw line seven times. During the game, Doncic looked several times toward the official stand, where several FIBA ​​officials were sitting, and also made the famous money gesture.
