Spain beats Serbia 83-65 to take the EuroBasket championships.

Pau Gasol is awarded tournament MVP, no surprise given his team's result and his statistical output, and emerges without any problems in his surgically repaired left index finger.

Everyone wins here, I'd say. Except Serbia, I guess.

UPDATE (10:30 am): The Painted Area has a great post putting the tournament in the context of Pau's larger career, both in the NBA and in international play. Gasol's resume is growing increasingly impressive, to put it mildly. Well worth the read.
