Rise, fall and victory

Crvena zvezda MTS osvojila je prve bodove u ovosezonskoj Evroligi. Loš početak, odlična druga četvrtina, zatim pad koncentracije i neizvesna završnica, koja je ovaj put pripala crveno-belima. Značajna pobeda na domaćem terenu (83:85).

A tight win for Red Star in Turkey. The red and whites have beat Galatasaray by 85:83 for their first Euroleague win of the season. Despite the match starting off with a +14 for the home team, the guests were more than willing to change the pace in the 2nd and 3rd quarter with Marko Simonovic staying strong on the court. Nevertheless, Galatasaray was able to turn things around and bring the match into an unpredictable ending. As the match was seconds away from closure Jovic forced the opponents hand for an important win.
