At front of 6.000 fans, mostly fans of Partizan mt:s, Crvena Zvezda Telekom survived Game 3 and wins over Partizan mt:s 81-74.

Even Partizan mt:s hosted this game, and most of us believed that Crvena Zvezda Telekom have no much chances in this game, miracle just happened.

Red and whites wins, and the most important thing is that we will watch at least another one game in Serbian league finals.

As I said after last game that Crvena Zvezda Telekom need much more from Rakocevic, he came back in this game and led its team with 18 points.

Boris Savovic and Rasko Katic scored 12 points each, and DeMarcus Nelson added 10 points and 7 rebounds.

Most criticized player in Crvena Zvezda Telekom in last few months, Michael Scott, finally woke up and in less than 20 minutes on the court scored 8 points and grabbed 9 rebounds.

In Partizan mt:s, team captain Vladimir Lucic in great role scored 26 points, Joffrey Lauvergne and Dragan Milosavljevic added 13 points each.

Atmosphere was great in Pionir Sport hall in Belgrade, as always when these two teams meet each other. I am glad that we will see more spectacle in Game 4, and really looking forward to watch it.

Even I usually don’t like to put any comments on referees, I must say that in some moments it was terrible. They stopped game so many time, called 60 personal fouls in total, and actually destroyed this game.

It is sad to see referees as main figures on the courts. Hopefully, in next game(s) it will be different.
