Both during and after the match, Slovenian fans vented their anger on social media, hoping to ease the pain they endured watching their favorite team lose to their opponents.

Some viewers described their feelings through the primaries of other situations.

“My neighbor sounds like he is undergoing surgery without anesthesia,” one fan wrote.

Slovenian journalist Mirko Mayer is more direct and points out the differences between teams and their players.

“Luka Dončičius has no right to be angry with the referee. In 10 minutes we can trail 19 points. We then lost nine traction per minute. If we play hard, Paul will look to lose by twenty points. “We will deal with defeat, but not with the attitude we saw in the first half of the game.”

One fan was more creative than the others and told a story about visiting him at the doctor’s office. The future.

“In 2042, a cardiologist examined me.” About 20 years ago you had a mild heart attack. Do you know why? ” The doctor asked me. “Yes. (Poland) Scoring and three points in the quarter-finals of the European Championship, ”I replied.

Even Serbian fans have spoken out, referring to the loss of their national team in the 16th round match against Italy.

“I think we Serbs are very stupid, but I see Slovenia tonight,” he wrote. Bite my tongue. – This is not a consolation, but they lost to Poland, not in volleyball, but in basketball. (They lost) Everything with Doncic and Dragic. Not true. ”

The strongest reaction came after the first half, when Slovenia had a 19-point deficit and Luka Doncic looked several times, holding his lower back as he walked to the locker room.

“What I wanted to see in the second half was a fight to the end … at least 3-4 players with 5 personalities (feuls) and a few others were sent off,” said one fan. For the technical … it’s not pathetic. ” tweeted.

Little did he know that the only player to use the wrong limit or get a technical error was Doncic. After a clever jump by Mateusz Ponitka, Doncic took his fifth error, leaving three minutes to go in the fourth quarter, leaving Slovenia struggling without him.

Coaches are often blamed after a painful loss. This time it was not an exception, as Aleksandar Sekulic was the center of many reactions.

“Sekulic should not be a general coach. “I really do not know what they are doing,” the fan wrote. “After Radenko (Trifunovičius) we were promised Itoudis and we got another harlequin from” Commedia dell’arte “.

“Has Sekulić already packed his bag?” Added another. You have three days to prepare the team and it is a shame to be off the field.

However, some fans did not put the weight of all the losses on the coach. Instead, they pay more attention to the players’ motivation on the pitch.

“It’s not about the coach today, it’s about the players,” the fan wrote. “That kind of quality difference should take care of itself, but not the level of a 3-on-3 basketball show.”

In the end, one fan took the positives out of the loss that shocked the basketball world.

“Look at the positives … At least we will not be nervous for those two games,” he said. No, ”he said.
