In Game 22 in ABA Adriatic league, Union Olimpija wins over Partizan mt:s in road game with 73-71. Good game for Union Olimpija and very important win.

Partizan mt:s played with a lot of ups and downs, and looked pretty confused in some moments in this game.

More than 5.500 people in Pionir Sport hall created fantastic atmosphere but it wan’t enough to help Black and whites to win against Union Olimpija.

Sasu Salin led Union Olimpija with 13 points, Teemu Rannikko scored 12 points, and Jaka Blazic, Dino Muric and Alen Omic scored 10 points each.

In Partizan mt:s, Joffrey Lauvergne played good game and scored 17 points, Vladimir Lucic added 11 points. Only these two players scored 2 digit points.

Partizan mt:s is in deep crisis and it is obvious. After they were defeated in Final game in Radivoj Korac Cup, and just few days later defeated again against Crvena Zvezda Telekom, it is third consecutive loss.

After this game Union Olimpija improved to 12-10 record, and Partizan mt:s dropped to 13-9 and seriously challenged its appearance in ABA Adriatic league Final 4.

We will see, there are four more games to be played in this regular part of season, but with this game, Partizan mt:s will hardly book its ticket to Final 4.

There are more and more complaints of their fans on forums and discussion boards, fans are not satisfied how their team played in last several games.

Coach Dusko Vujosevic years ago adored coach, more and more criticized by fans about his philosophy.
