BOCAUE, Bulacan --- Poland should have gone for the head.

No. 1 Serbia moved on to the Finals of the 2018 FIBA 3x3 World Cup, scoring an epic 21-19 semifinals win Tuesday at the Philippine Arena here.

World no. 1 Dejan Majstorovic scored an off-balanced two-pointer off the glass to push the Serbians to yet another Final. The two-time defending champions will meet the Netherlands for the gold medal for the second straight year.

Serbia was down by as many as seven points as Poland's balanced offense took over.

However, Dusan Bulut willed Serbia back before Majstorovic completed the job.

Bulut finished with nine points while Majstorovic added six points. Michael Hicks led Poland with six points.

In the other men's semis, the Netherlands stunned no. 2 Slovenia, 21-16, to arrange the Finals rematch against Serbia.

Jesper Jobse fired nine points to lead the Netherlands while Aron Roije added another six points in the win. Slovenia got seven points from Gasper Ovnik.
