Red Star Belgrade cruised to their fifth ABA League win of the season, downing Mega Basket at home by 81-67 (24-16, 22-16, 14-16, 21-19)

After six rounds of regional competition, Crvena Zvezda are 5-1, while Mega Basket dropped to 2-4. Partizan Belgrade remain the only unbeaten team in the ABA League (6-0).

Nate Wolters and Nikola Kalinic were the leading men for Radonjic's squad with 13 and 11 points respectively. The hosts had 10 steals and only 9 turnovers which facilitated their work.

Red Star took the lead right from the start and easily increased it to as many as 21 points (41-20) half-way through the second quarter. Nate Wolters and Nikola Kalinic combined for 19 points, as Cvezda looked pretty dominant. 

However, Mega Basket's reaction was timely. The visitors received only two points in five minutes, while cutting down the deficit to 11 (48-37), thanks to Balcerowski and Djurisic.

Hollins and Simonovic helped Cvezda recover (70-52) and things became quite easy for them down the stretch. 

Red Star Belgrade: Wolters 13 (6 AST), Kalinic 11, Simonovic 11, Dobric 10, Kuzmic 8, Lazarevic 8.

Mega Basket: Balcerowski 19 (8/10 FT, 4 BL), Matkovic 14 (6 REB), Djurisic 10.
