Ndong and Katic exchanged jumpers and Macvan soon gave Galatasaray a 38-43 margin. Katic kept pacing Zvezda with another basket but Ndong answered with a three-point play and Arroyo buried a corner triple for a 40-49 Galatasaray lead. A fast break layup by Savovic fixed the halftime score at 42-49.

Nelson shined with a backdoor layup after the break that Macvan matched with a floater in the lane. Nelson insisted with free throws but Arroyo answered from downtown and Ndong followed a dunk with an alleyoop layup to make it a double-digit game, 46-58. Arroyo downed a three-pointer to cap a 0-10 run, as Rakocevic stepped up with a jumper. Ndong swished a four-meter shot, Nelson scored in penetration and free throws by Rakocevic gave Zvezda some hope at 52-63. Gordon took over with a fast break layup and Arslan sank a rainbow jumper but Brown singlehandedly kept Zvezda within 56-67. Rakocevic and Ndong exchanged layups, Brown made free throws and a buzzer-beating put-back layup by Erwin Dudley kept Galatasaray way ahead, 60-71, after 30 minutes. Both teams struggled to score early in the fourth quarter until Arslan downed a triple, good for a 60-74 Galatasaray lead. Brown scored in the paint but free throws by Macvan and a turnaround jumper by Ndong sealed the outcome, 62-79, with over 6 minutes to go. Zvezda kept struggling to score right when it mattered most until Savovic stepped up with a tip-in. Lazic added free throws but everything was said and done already. Galatasaray grabbed a prestigious road win to improve its situation in Last 16 Group L and Zvezda needs to bounce back right away to challenge Unics in its next two Eurocup showdowns.

Head Coaches

VUKOICIC, VLADA
Crvena Zvezda Telekom Belgrade
"It was a fair win by Galatasaray. We couldn’t say that we were favorites before the game even though they lost to Unics at home last week. They controlled the game from the beginning. Maybe we expected too much out of this game in terms of result. We needed to be on our maximum in order to win tonight. Since they played great and we didn’t, they easily won. We are moving on to the next games."
ATAMAN, ERGIN
Galatasaray Medical Park
"First of all, I’d like to say that the atmosphere in the arena was amazing. The Red Star fans are the best crowd in Europe in the last few years; congratulations to them. It was really important for us to win tonight after we lost last week. We opened the game very good, especially Gordon and Aroyo. We stopped Red Star’s running game and we managed to control Rakocevic with Gordon. Good control of the paint gave us control of the result for the entire 40 minutes. "

NELSON, DEMARCUS
Crvena Zvezda Telekom Belgrade
"It was a good game tonight with two teams with big aspirations in the competition. They played really well both defensively and offensively. We were supposed to do much more in defense, but we didn’t. We have to get better in pick-and-roll defense, one-on-one defense, to find smarter solutions. "
MACVAN, MILAN
Galatasaray Medical Park
"It was a very hard game tonight in this arena. I would like to congratulate my teammates and coach; this was a big win for us. The competition is long and we have to play four more games. With this win, we managed to come back after last week’s defeat."
