Germany triumphed over Serbia in the Final of the FIBA World Cup and claimed the title for the first time in history (83-77).
Dennis Schroder led the way for the Germans with a game-high 28 points, helping his team return to the FIBA World Cup podium after 21 years (bronze medal, 2002). On the other hand, Aleksa Avramovic scored 21 points for the Serbians, who lost their second FIBA World Cup Final in nine years (2014, defeat to Team USA).
It was a hard-fought battle in the opening half (47-47), with Germany taking over in the third quarter (67-55) and Serbia turning things around late in the fourth (78-75). But, Schroder and Germany stood tall and went on to win the game and the title.
In the third-place Game, Canada defeated Team USA in an overtime thriller and won the bronze medal. It was the first-ever for the Canadians in the FIBA World Cup. Dillon Brooks led the way for the winners with 39 points, while the Americans failed to claim the FIBA World Cup title for a second straight time (2019, 2023).
