Anadolu Efes downed Partizan mt:s


To be honest, I didn’t even expect that Partizan mt:s could possibly win this game in Istanbul, in game 6 of Turkish Airlines Euroleague.

Anadolu Efes played better and deserves this win against Partizan mt:s which didn’t played at desired level. Another one proof that when Pekovic not play good, Partizan mt:s is in a deep trouble.

Only 3 points and 4 rebounds for little less than 25 minutes, the worst performance for Nikola Pekovic in this Turkish Airlines Euroleague season.

Final score 67:58, by quarters 15:17, 15:11, 19:8, 18:22. Another one bad third quarter for Partizan mt:s, and this will be big problem for coach Vlade Jovanovic in the rest of season, if they not find a reasons for such a bad third quarter in most of games.

Sasha Vujacic with 21, and Dusko Savanovic with 16 points led Anadolu Efes to this very imporatnt win. After this game, both teams gave score of 3 wins and 3 losses.

On most of Serbian discussion borads you can read comments that Serbian Basketball fans, or better say Partizan mt:s fans are very angry on Dusko Savanovic. Angry because Savanovic was key player in both games between Anadolu Efes and Partizan mt:s but also because Savanovic didn’t play well or better say under all expectations in EuroBasket 2011 in Lithuania. Fans are mad, because they believe that Savanovic play good only when he is paid.

For Black and Whites in tonight’s game, Milan Macvan scored 15 points and if you ask me, he wes the best player in Black and White team. Acie Law added 10 points and the most important young Danilo Andjusic also added 10 points.

Partizan mt:s fans are angry on coach Vlade Jovanovic because they believe that young Andjusic should have more playing time. This young guy is a big potential and definitely he needs and deserves more playing minutes.

Hopefully, Jovanovic will realize this soon. But who knows, maybe Jovanovic have some other ideas in his head. For him Milosavljevic and Cakarevic deserves more time on the court, if he is right or not we will see soon.
