Partizan are now 6-0, while Cacak dropped to 2-4. The "black and white" had no problem whatsoever during the contest and were led in scoring by Zach LeDay, who went for 14 points. However, the main event was not the game itself, but Zeljko Obradovic's return to his hometown. The legendary coach was received more than warmly by local fans.

The visitors took the lead from early on and were 19-10 upfront at the end of the first quarter. As the game progressed, Partizan's two-point percentage increased above 70 percent, while the team's captain Rade Zagorac hit four of four in the second quarter.

Partizan were able to take a 27-point lead, allowing coach Obradovic to share playing time among his players. Apart from LeDay's 14 points, Madar finished with 13, while Smailagic, Zagorac and Kurucs each added 10.

For the home team, Lesic put up 14 and Pecarski scored 13 points with nine rebounds.

Partizan Belgrade: LeDay 14 (4 REB), Smailagic 13 (5 REB), Madar 13, Zagorac 10, Kurucs 10 (1/6 3-POINT SHOTS), Moore 8, Avramovic 7 (6 AST, 5 ST).
