Zoran Wins, Nenad Loses in Eurobasket Debuts

Croatia's all NBA backcourt dominated Bulgaria today, as the Jazz's Gordan Giricek scored 22 points and the Nets' Zoran Planinic scored 16 and handed out 4 assists in an 88-84 win over Bulgaria. Nenad Krstic's Serbian team was upset by Spain, 89-70, with the Nets' center scoring only 3 points and grabbing only two rebounds before fouling out. Draft Express had called Krstic one of the tournament's biggest stars. Croatia plays Lithuania and Serbia plays Israel Saturday.
