Partizan glorious in Zeleznik
The game in Zeleznik finished 66 : 69 (21:16, 20:23, 13:10, 12:20) for the guests who are the only unbeaten team in NLB League with seven wins in the streak. The first period was seized by the host but Partizan shifted a gear up and after playing agressive defense and scoring baskets under the hoop they came to a precious win. "It was a very important away win for us in this moment as we have many tough games to come. FMP is a very specific rival as they play agressive and motivated basketball. Congratulation to my coleagues from the team, and I wish Zeleznik a lot of luck in the games on their way."said Aleksandar Rasic. Dusko Vujosevic reportedly said: "FMP has lost many even games and they could have won all those games if they were lucky. Some people think we do not play basketball which is equal to the matches in Euroleague but I think that it is very hard to do especially in this time set at 4 p.m. There is no serious team in Europe playing good basketball in this period of the day, my players feel tired because of that and I ask managemnt of Fox TV and NLB League to change it to evening starters in order to get better games. I am very glad for Tripkovic who had a good game and I hope he can keep this level for the forthcoming matches. Anyway, I always feel afraid when we have to go to Zeleznik as they play powerful basketball and it's never been easy to beat them and I have great respect for them."
