Title-contenders Spain produced a devastating late burst to seal a 67-60 victory over Italy and squeeze into the basketball World Cup quarterfinals Friday -- and take strongly fancied Serbia with them.Juan Hernangomez of the Denver Nuggets led the scoring for Spain with 16 points, but they will have to play better offensively if they are to go much farther in the competition.Jokic had 14 points and 10 rebounds, and made a sublime laser pass to cut open the Puerto Rico defense, as Serbia began the second-round group phase much as they finished the first.Sacramento Kings forward Nemanja Bjelica also impressed once more, drilling a leading 18 points.
