Nikola Jovic took a shot at Dillon Brooks after Serbia's huge win over Canada in the 2023 FIBA World Cup semifinals. Serbia booked their ticket to the final with a 95-86 win against Canada on Friday at the Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City, Philippines.

In the video below, Jovic seemingly trolled Brooks on his way to the locker room. The Miami Heat forward shadow-boxed as a form of celebration. Brooks had done the same thing after Canada's win over Slovenia in the quarterfinals.

The Houston Rockets swingman was disqualified from Wednesday's game after receiving two technical fouls. He wore a pair of gloves as he welcomed the team back into the locker room to celebrate.

Here's the video:

Serbia's defense was the key to their win against Canada. Bogdan Bogdanovic led the way for Serbia with 23 points, four rebounds and three assists. Nikola Milutinov had 16 points and 10 rebounds while Ognjen Dobric scored 16 points.

Marko Guduric, who added 12 points off the bench, said after the game that they dedicated the win to their teammate Borisa Simanic. Simanic remains in a hospital in Manila after his kidney was removed following an injury in a game against South Sudan.

"I want to dedicate this win to him," Guduric said. "Hopefully, we're going to see him soon with us, with the team.
"Just want to say that hopefully, he feels a little bit better when he knows he has a medal. I know it's not important, but I hope we made him happy tonight."

Serbia's defense held Shai Gilgeous-Alexander into a passer, limiting him to just 15 points and nine assists. RJ Barrett took over the offense with 23 points while Dillon Brooks had 16 points on 5-for-12 shooting from the field.

Dillon Brooks has been very solid for Canada in the 2023 FIBA World Cup. He was instrumental in their team's in the tournament, which could end with a bronze medal finish.

The Houston Rockets forward is averaging 11.7 points, 2.7 rebounds and 2.3 assists in seven games. He has also been their best defender, hounding the opponent's best perimeter player.

Brooks was also clutch in Canada's win over Spain, eliminating the defending world champions.


Brooks' defense and pest-like qualities led to Luka Doncic's ejection in their quarterfinals win against Slovenia. However, he was unable to prevent Canada's loss to Serbia and was trolled by a 20-year-old forward.
