There are no undefeated teams left in the Adriatic League after this match - Partizan was the only such team beforehand.

Zeljko Obradovic's squad didn't win any games this week, as they also lost to MoraBanc Andorra by one point this week.

Crvena Zvezda dominated right from the start, as Partizan didn't lead even for a second of the match. The hosts only allowed them to score 21 points in the first half and were down by 11 at halftime (32-21).

The Red Star gained a commanding 17-point advantage in the third (40-23), but Partizan managed to cut their deficit to five towards the end of the period (40-45).

However, that wasn't enough, as Crvena Zvezda went on a 20-4 run to seal a 15-point victory.

Luka Mitrovic led the hosts with 16 points (7/10 2PT, 2/2 FT), 7 rebounds, 2 assists, 1 block, 1 turnover, and 22 PIR.

Crvena Zvezda: Luka Mitrovic 16 (7 REB), Ognjen Dobric 15 (6 REB), Nikola Kalinic 14 (5 AST), Nate Wolters 9 (5 REB, 5 AST, 3 STL).

Partizan: Alen Smailagic 15 (9 REB), Dallas Moore 14, Kevin Punter 6, Rade Zagorac 6.
