Not sure if anyone expected such a drama in game between Radnicki and Cibona in Game 21 in ABA Adriatic league.

After regular 40 minutes results was 82-82 and we had first overtime. But, even after this overtime we had no winner since result was 95-95.

Finally, after second overtime, and 50 minutes played, Radnicki wins over very good Cibona with final score 105-101.

I am not sure if I may say that Radnicki deserved this win, since Cibona played very well during most of game, and they were better team, but finally only wins counts.

One of my favorite Serbian coaches Miroslav Nikolic didn’t prepare his team well for this game. They knew that this game is important for them but as well as for Cibona.

Cibona tried to win and escape from pretty tough situation at the bottom of standings in ABA Adriatic league.

With this win, Radnicki improved to 13-8 record, identical as Buducnost VOLI and Partizan mt:s. Cibona dropped to 7-14 score.

Aleksandar Capin in fantastic role, led Radnicki with 32 points and 7 assists. Steven Markovic scored 15 points and 7 assists, Matthew Bryan Amaning added 14 points and grabbed 6 rebounds.

In Cibona, Andrija Zizic scored 25 points and grabbed 9 rebounds, Jerel Blassingame scored 20 points and 6 assists, Davor Kus added 16 points and 9 rebounds.

Very good game to watch despite all ups and downs, silly mistakes on both sides. But, on moments very good defense and offense plays. Several attractive moves.

Atmosphere in Jezero Sport hall was great, as about 3.000 supporters created great atmosphere and helped home team to reach important win.
