The Take

An outstanding basketball atmosphere is expected at Pionir Arena to welcome back Fenerbahce Ulker coach Zeljko Obradovic, who led Partizan to its only Euroleague title in 1992. Fener relies on its backcourt scorers, former Partizan star Bo McCalebb and Bojan Bogdanovic, to make the difference in this game. Leo Westermann must be ready to stop McCalebb while Bogdanovic and Emir Preldzic will face several hard-nosed defenders such as Bogdan Bogdanovic, Tarence Kinsey and Dragan Milosavljevic - all more than able to change the game on offense, too. Partizan looks to Djordje Gagic, Nikola Milutinov and Dejan Musli to make the difference in the paint. Linas Kleiza, Luka Zoric and Nemanja Bjelica must open the floor with their outside shooting in one of the keys to this game. Two mastermind coaches, Dusko Vujosevic and Obradovic, go face-to-face. Expect great basketball!

Quotes Head Coaches

VUJOSEVIC, DUSKO
Partizan NIS Belgrade
"If you follow basketball at all, there is no need to explain what kind of team Fenerbahce is. You know the players, you know the coach, how they play and the results they are getting. We can only give our maximum with top motivation and the help of a crowd that will surely fill up the Pionir. We can only hope that we have our chances."
OBRADOVIC, ZELJKO
Fenerbahce Ulker Istanbul
"Very difficult game because over there, in Pionir, the fans help them a lot. That's one reason, but the other, more important, is that they are a good team. They have a philosophy of the club and the way how they play in the last 15 years, with the same coach, always with young players. For sure it will be a difficult game for us, just because of this. As always we just have to be ready to play for 40 minutes and see what happens."

Players

BOGDANOVIC, BOGDAN
Partizan NIS Belgrade
"We're certainly in for a big game, this is going to be a great experience for us. Fenerbahce is a powerful team, they have top players in all positions so we can only promise to give our best. We can only get a good result if we give it all and, of course, if our fans help us along the way with a packed Pionir."
BOGDANOVIC, BOJAN
Fenerbahce Ulker Istanbul
"It's gonna be very difficult game for us because they play much better in their gym a front of their fans, but we want to keep playing good and win our 12th game in a row this season."

Bogdanovic stars as Fenerbahce Ulker tops Partizan

Fenerbahce Ulker Istanbul remained unbeaten after rallying from a double-digit deficit, downing Partizan NIS Belgrade 78-88 on Friday night in Hala Pionir. Bojan Bogdanovic scored 26 points on 6-of-9 three-point shooting to pace Fenerbahce, which improved to 4-0 and is in sole possession of first place in Group A, while Partizan dropped to 1-3 and a share of fifth place. The hosts built a double-digit advantage in the second quarter, and held a 38-30 halftime lead, but Fenerbahce rallied as Bogdanovic and Emir Preldzic fueled its offense. The duo hit back-to-back triples early in the fourth quarter, sparking a 4-14 spurt that put the game out of reach. Preldzic finished with 11 points, 8 assists and 6 rebounds in victory. Bo McCalebb scored 14, Nemanja Bjelica had 12 points and Kenan Sipahi netted 10 for Fenerbahce. Joffrey Lauvergne led Partizan with 20 points plus 10 rebounds. Tarence Kinsey collected 18 points plus 7 rebounds, and Leo Westermann scored 13 in defeat.

First quarter: Partizan's goes in front behind its defense

The hosts started scoring in style, with a fastbreak monster-dunk from Lauvergne, assisted by Kinsey and Westermann. The visitors opened their account with a layup from Bjelica, but Partizan started off with ferocious defense that forced 3 early turnovers, so Dragan Milosavljevic hit a baseline jumper and a runner for 6-2. Fenerbahce countered as Preldzic drove for a dunk and Bojan Bogdanovic sank a triple for 6-7. After Lauvergne scored a layup, McCalebb drove for a layup and a basket-plus-foul, 8-12. But Partizan regained the lead after a triple from Westermann and a driving layup from Bogdan Bogdanovic. Boris Dallo hit a buzzer-beating jumper to make it 17-13 after 10 minutes.

Second quarter: Hosts open a double-digit lead

Kinsey opened the second quarter with a basket-plus-foul for a 7-point margin. After Linas Kleiza and Dejan Musli traded baskets from close range, Preldzic made a put-back helping Fenerbahce cut it to 22-19. But Lauvergne got a favorable bounce on another shot from close range, later added a put-back to his tally, and Nikola Milutinov muscled in a dunk as lead reached 30-19 midway through the second quarter. The visitors were without a field goal for almost four minutes before Bjelica sank a three-pointer to spark a 0-9 run. After McCalebb raced for a layup, and Bjelica drove the baseline for another basket, the deficit was cut to 30-28. More bad news for the hosts was Musli's foul trouble as he committed 4 personal fouls, however, Lauvergne scored another layup to spark a run that included a triple from Bogdan Bogdanovic and a baseline jumper for Kinsey, as Partizan took a 38-30 halftime lead.

Third quarter: Bojan Bogdanovic scores 13 as Fenerbahce comes back

Fenerbahce got its offense going, with a triple from Bojan Bogdanovic and a driving layup from Preldzic. The hosts were in more trouble when head coach Dusko Vujosevic was ejected for his second technical foul, and a put-back from Gasper Vidmar made it 40-39. The hosts caught some breathing room with zone defense, followed with Milutinov’s tip-in-plus-foul. In addition, Fenerbahce lost one of its leaders when Kleiza fouled out after less than four minutes gone in the third quarter. But Bojan Bogdanovic made a layup, and Milosavljevic hit a jumper, 47-42. But free throws from McCalebb and Bjelica, followed by a basket-plus-foul from Luka Zoric, tied it at 49-49. Westermann answered on the next possession with a long jumper, but Bojan Bogdanovic and Nenad Bjelica nailed triples from each corner for 53-55. Lauvergne made a dunk after a textbook spin-move, but Zoric answered with a put-back and Bojan Bogdanovic hit his fourth three-pointer as Fenerbahce was grabbing control of the game, taking a 57-60 lead into the fourth quarter.

Fourth quarter: Fenerbahce pulls away with 4-14 run

Kenan Sipahi made an uncontested fastbreak dunk at the start of the fourth quarter, and after Kinsey drove for a layup on the other end, Preldzic and Bojan Bogdanovic hit from long range for 61-68. Djordje Gagic made a dunk, but Sipahi drove for a layup, added couple of free throws to the tally, before assisting Vidmar for a layup. Preldzic made a runner for 63-76, before Kinsey hit a long jump shot, snapping a 4-14 run. The hosts got to the free throw line on consecutive possession, but Vidmar had a monster dunk and a layup to keep the lead in the double figures. Before the game’s end, Bojan Bogdanovic and Kinsey traded three-pointers, and McCalebb closed out the scoring with a shot from downtown.

VUJOSEVIC, DUSKO
Partizan NIS Belgrade
"Congratulations to Fenerbahce they deserved the win. They played excellent in the second half. Our guests managed to score important three-pointers. Fener is high-quality team and I am satisfied with Partizan's game in the first half."
OBRADOVIC, ZELJKO
Fenerbahce Ulker Istanbul
"We prepared the game knowing everything about Partizan's style, but in the first half we did not manage to limit their aggressive rebounding on offense. We had to play brave in the second half and we did it: I am satisfied. I have to name Kenan Sipahi, who is 18 years old but he played like a 30-year-old tonight. This is our game 12th game of this season so far and we had nine on the road. Our team is a little bit tired."
