The star confirmed his tooth in Madrid, Actual routinely gained ultimately

One great half was not enough for Zvezda to seriously threaten Real, which took the triumph in Madrid – 79:67.

The red and whites were significantly weakened against the leading team in the competition, without as many as three players from the starting five – Kalinic, Mitrovic and Walters.

Despite that, Dejan Radonjić’s team played an excellent first half, which ended in a draw 32:32.

The star controlled the match, kept the opponent at a low percentage of shots from the game (36%), while finding smart solutions in the attack in order to maintain an equal with the favored Real.

Madrid coach Pablo Lasso said at halftime that it was the worst 20 minutes of his team so far this season, so it was expected that the home players would play much better in the second half.

That’s what happened. Ertel scored 9 points in the third section, as much as Tavares, who “locked” his team’s racket, so Real enters the last section with an 11-point advantage – 57:46.

From minute to minute, the home team raised the surplus, which on two occasions amounted to 19 points, but Zvezda, as who knows how many times this season, did not give up.

Hollins played, hit several important shots, so in less than two minutes until the end, Zvezda managed to get to only minus nine – 74:65.

However, Real did not allow a surprise in the finish of the match, so in the end they came to a victory of 79:67.

Hollins was the most efficient in the Zvezda team with 16 points, Cirbes added 12, Dobrić 9 (all in the first half), Ivanović and Kuzmić 8 each.

Tavares was the best individual of the match with 15 points and 4 ramps, Pojrije added 14 and Hanga added 11 points.

Real recorded its ninth triumph in the competition and was alone in first place in the table after an incomplete 11th round with a score of 9-2.

Zvezda recorded its seventh defeat in the competition, and they will have the opportunity to correct Dejan Radonjić’s team next Friday, when the Unix team comes to Belgrade in the 12th round.

According to some information, Zvezda could be complete in that game, which would be the first time this season that Radonjic can count on all players.
