Winners and Losers of the 2018 NBA Draft
The Dallas Mavericks pulled off one of the biggest coups in the draft when they acquired top European prospect Luka Doncic . Dennis Smith Jr ., who was the No. 9 pick in the 2017 draft, said on Twitter after the Luka Doncic trade that he's "a fan".
Mexico were mesmerising in the opening 20 minutes, so good that Tite had a concerned look on his face. A toe-poked attempt to beat Mexico goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa in the 88th minute was diverted into the path of Robert Firmino, who scored the second.
