Partizan defeated for the first time in NLB
Partizan didn't maintain the streak in NLB League. Red Star won the old firm derby 80:81. Partizan guys controled the game and the result through two and a half quarters. But our team lost the breath and Red Star gets their lead at five minutes to the end 72:65. Black and White guys tried to get the score but Tepic's floater for the win goes off in the last second and Red and Whites take it all. Dusko Vujosevic said: "Congratulations to Red Star for their desrved win. There are several crucial moments which depict our defeat. We had a 10p lead and our ball, we missed a chance to score and conceived a hard three pointer with the sound for the half time. We still had a 10 point lead when Pesic was sent off which maybe helped Red Star players play without pressure and score from all positions. Technical and personal fouls of my players also contributed to the score. We are just too tired in this hard games series. Congratulations to Red Star once more."
