With 38 seconds left in the first quarter, the match was interrupted.

Following a call by the refereeing crew, Crvena Zvezda fans started throwing hard objects onto the court. Several measures were taken to discourage fans from continuing with even Branko Lazic taking the microphone to talk directly to the fans.

Nevertheless, led by EuroLeague referee Damir Javor, the match's refereeing crew left the game after the actions did not stop.

After several minutes of discussion, it was decided to remove all fans from Tribune B where the Crvena Zvezda ultras are located. It was later announced that the entire Aleksandar Nikolic Hall will be emptied if one more object falls on the court during any time of the match.

A large number of police forces was invited to speed up the process.
