Buducnost plays better from the time and trails a point behind the current champions in tight finish but Partizan stays focused and wins the game. Black and Whites had a fantastic help from the crowd as Partizan fans filled SC "Morača". Partizan is now lonely on Top of the leaderbord with the score 17-2. " This is a very important victory which came after a lot of effort and desire to win. Buducnost gave the same to win, too, not just during this game but whole season. They have a good average height team but no classic center and that helps them with the agressivness and speed and they are very disciplined attackingly. They normally have a big flaw defensively under the hoop which helped us but when they played agressively our guards didn't manage to go through front defensive line and that gave us a lot of oscilations in our game. The result of that was that we lost our lead in the 3rd Q when they outscored us and when they took one ball when Lasme scored a three pointer and came two points behind. This is a very important and tough away victory on a very hot court in Podgorica, where I feel comfortable as a man leading Montenegro National Team. '',said the coach of Partizan,Duško Vujošević.
