Zach LeDay with 18 points and Aleksa Avramovic with 15 paced the hosts, while Ebuka Izundu and Bryce Jones scored a combined 35 points, more than half of FMP's overall output in the game. The visiting team got score from only seven players.

Zeljko Obradovic's squad was on a bad shooting night, going 6-of-27 (22%) from the perimeter, committing 17 turnovers which allowed their opponents to remain competitive throughout the entire game.

However, Partizan were enjoying a 14-point lead going into the fourth quarter.

Pavicevic made it 69-62 for the hosts with five minutes to go, but Partizan only needed to touch the gas and re-gain their double-digit lead. Radonjic and Jones pushed FMP even closer (72-67).

Pavicevic missed the lay-up that could have cut down the deficit to three and then LeDay knocked down a couple of free throws to give his team a seven-point advantage (74-67) and seal the victory.

Partizan NIS Belgrade: Zach LeDay 18 (7/12 FG, 7 REB), Aleksa Avramovic 15 (6/10 FG, 4 AST), Uros Trifunovic 8, Balsa Koprivica 7 (9 REB).

FMP Belgrade: Ebuka Izundu 20 (7/11 FG, 5/7 FT, 9 REB), Bryce Jones 15 (3/9 FG, 8/8 FT, 4 REB, 7 AST), Marko Radonjic 7.
