You get what I mean.
At this "derby match" we started with a 12:0 series. Pavlović heated up the Steam Roller right at the beginning, there was no return.
Today’s online stream was one of the worst kinds, and I didn’t find any better all over the internet. All of them lagged, making the stream unwatchable. Thankfully Adriatic League has this kind habit to upload all the matches to Youtube in full time. Until then I try to re-enact the game.
So, it took more than 7 minutes for Cedevita to score 1 (one) point. There were less than 3 minutes to go when they could pass the ball through the ring after getting a free throw. (The second attempt was unsuccessful.) Mačvan and Dallo did a great teamwork, Dallo threw the ball to the basket from behind the 3-pointer line, but missed it. Mačvan, Partizan’s official troll was sneaking under the backboard, made a fantastic rebound and scored with a wide grin on his face, right at the buzz. 14:1
Cedevita picked themselves together a bit (16:7 was the result at the end of the quarter) and tried to keep up this pace for the next period. In reality the two teams were wrestling for 2 minutes without much result (17:12), then Partizan thought it was enough. Gagić was the first in line with a free throw (19:12), then Andrić celebrated his birthday with a 3-pointer (24:14). Our advantage was still two-digit (28:18), Andrić brought another 3-pointer - birthdays happen only once a year, so you have to do it in style... (31:20).
I think, this was the point when Mačvan walked off the ground with painful face, holding his right shoulder.
Our pace didn’t slow down despite all.
The half-time result was 39:26 and Mačvan resurrected for the second half.
