Today, Dario Saric continued his impressive performance in the FIBA World Cup with a perfect game. Saric shot 5-of-5 from the field (2-of-2 from deep) and 3-of-3 from the free-throw line. The Croatian forward totaled 15 points, four rebounds and three assists.
Dario Saric finishes with 15 PTS (5/5 FG), 4 REB, and 3 AST in 14 minutes in a 103-82 Croatian win over Puerto Rico. #TogetherWeBuild

Note that Michael Carter-Williams, Nerlens Noel and Joel Embiid — aka The Big Three — traveled to Spain to watch Saric’s Croatia squad cruise to a 103-82 victory against Puerto Rico. The trio seemed quite excited about watching their future teammate in action.
Dario is a beast…… We can't wait 2 more years #DariotoPhillyNOW

These three traveling to Spain to see Saric should speak volumes about the type of close knit team Sam Hinkie is trying to build. Dario Saric speaks broken English and probably has difficulty speaking with his future 76ers teammates, but that didn’t stop them from taking the time to watch him play. He turned in a pretty damn good performance for them as well.
