Iran News - - SPORTS -

IS­TAN­BUL (dis­patches) - Russia’s Alek­sei Shved won the in­di­vid­ual shoot-out up against Bog­dan Bog­danovic on Fri­day, but it was the Sacra­mento Kings’ point guard and his Ser­bia team who pro­gressed to the fi­nal of the EuroBas­ket thanks to an 87-79 vic­tory in Is­tan­bul.

Khimki’s Shved had 33 points and five as­sists to sur­pass Bo­gan­dovic’s 24 points and four as­sists, but the lat­ter man­aged one more re­bound and two more steals, the pair dom­i­nat­ing the scor­ing in the semi-fi­nal at Si­nan Er­dem Arena.

Of Bog­danovic’s haul, 13 points ar­rived in a first half that saw Ser­bia mount a 14-0 scor­ing run, do­ing con­sid­er­able dam­age to Russia’s hopes.
