Convincing wins of the best 2 teams of the regular season in the clash of ABA-League semi-finals.
In front of 6000 fans, the red&white team took the lead of the game against Buducnost from the 1st quarter of the game, thanks to the great performance of Simonovic (18p) and Guduric (18p). The Montenegrin team tried to fill the gap only in the last quarter, simply too late!
On the other “play-off side” Cedevita defeated Partizan NIS, taking the lead of the game from the beginning. The black and white squad loose Lukovic for injury in the first quarter, and this highly affected on their defensive efficacy (36r for Cedevita, only 24 for Partizan).
