Phoenix Suns guard Goran Dragic laid a pretty heavy charge after watching Australia lose to Angola 91-83 Thursday at the FIBA Basketball World Cup.
Dragic thinks Australia went down on purpose – the favored Aussies played many of their bench guys against Angola, ensuring a loss and thereby avoiding a potential matchup with Team USA in the quarterfinals.
(Dragic’s Slovenian team is in the same Group D as Australia, and handed them their only other loss thus far):
Basketball is a beautiful sport, there is no room for fixing the game like today Australia vs Angola!! @FIBA should do something about that!
