MANILA, Philippines (AP) — No Nikola Jokic, no problem. Even with its best player sitting out this summer, Serbia is going to play for gold at the Basketball World Cup. Bogdan Bogdanovic scored 23 points to help Serbia beat Canada 95-86 in the World Cup semifinals. Serbia is in the World Cup final for the second time in the last three tournaments. It lost to the U.S. in the 2014 final, and will face Germany on Sunday night in the title game at Manila.
