Vladimir Gordic - KK BuducnostKK Buducnost took an important first home win on Tuesday night, 70-59, against Hemofarm Stada in a game with Adriatic League flavor. The hosts started dominating, but soon, Hemofarm stepped up with a scoring run that allowed the guests to forge a 24-32 edge on the verge of finishing the first half. However, Buducnost reacted with an 11-1 run between the third and fourth quarters that turned things around for good. Now, Buducnost puts the first win in the column and improves to 1-2 to tie with CEZ Nymburk, while Hemofarm drops to 1-2 in Group H and allows Iurbentia Bilbao to escape as sole group leader with a 3-0 midway through the regular season. Nemanja Gordic led the winners with his 14 points, Vladimir Dasic posted 13 and Vladimir Dragicevic had 10 for Buducnost. For Hemofarm, Vladan Vukosavljevic had 18 points, 11 of them in the first quarter.

Milivoje Bozovic opened the scoreboard for Hemofarm but soon, Buducnost was up by 4-2 after Vladimir Micov's bucket. Vladan Vukosavljevic was Buducnosts's main problem now as he quickly escalated to 7 points as he scored for a 8-9 edge for the guests from the paint. Vladimir Dasic insisted for the hosts to keep his team ahead, but so did Vukosavljevic who dominated the first minutes of the game in offense with no opposition. However, Ivan Maras hit back with 5 straight points including a triple for Buducnost, to put an end to the first period with a 22-17. Hemofarm started the second period completely outrebounding Buducnost, 4-12, but the 5 steals of the hosts against 0 by the guests and better ball handling in offense allowed Buducnost to stay on the lead, 24-19, after Maras' layup. At that point however, things turned around for the guests with a 0-13 run including 4 points by Milan Macvan that put a 24-32 on the score in minute 18. Marko Simonovic stopped the bleeding for Buducnost with his layup, even though the turnovers rate for the hosts was alarmingly starting to grow. The halftime buzzer rang though after Bojan Krstovic stopped Buducnost's mini-reaction with a free throw to send the game into the break with a 28-33 advantage for Hemofarm.

Nemanja Gordic's three straight points to open the second half, allowed Buducnost to pull within 31-33, but defenses were tough again and points were scarce. Vukosavljevic re-appeared on the offensive end for Hemofarm to keep his team going, but Marko Simonovic free throws and Vladimir Dragicevic's layup tied the game again, 37-37 in minute 25. The positive trend in offense of the hosts went on however, as Gordic appeared again with five points in a row, bomb from downtown included, to put his team ahead after many minutes, 44-38, sealing an 11-1 burst that gave way to a 46-42 Buducnost lead entering the last period. The fourth quarter opened with a 5-0 Buducnost run that allowed the hosts to build a 51-42 cushion, only trimmed by Macvan's basket-plus-foul that gave some life back to Hemofarm. However, Buducnost played its cards smart by keeping the lead safe with Dasic's and Dragicevic's three-pointers midway through the last period to keep it 64-52 in minute 37. Stefan Markovic rose from the arc for Hemofarm with a three entering the last minute, but it was 68-57 after Dragicevic's free throw in the last steps of the game, securing the first win of the season for the team from Podgorica.

"The victory against Hemofarm Stada is a great achievement for my team. We opened the game quite correctly, but the second period was pretty bad. We lost control of the paint and shot bad from the perimeter. The second half was the period of our great defense that allowed us easy realization in offense. In the last period we hit some excellent triples and scored an 11-point victory that could be important on the end of competition."
KARADZIC, STEVAN
Hemofarm Stada
"Congratulations to Buducnost on their great victory. We played only during the first half at the level that we needed. In the third period we had a lot of trouble in offense and with a transition of the ball that resulted with an extremely bad 18 turnovers. Those balls, those hard mistakes we gave to our rival and allowed them very easy points. In the last period we tried to hit several balls without any reason because we wanted to cut their lead. So we were punished because of that. The final score is too big considering that game was open. But it is too early speak about differences because we are on the half of the Group H competition."

"The most important thing for our team is that we won an important game tonight. Defense was the key factor for our victory. I want to say that we played phenomenal defense in this game. In the first half we had a slightly worse shooting performance and our 28 points is the result from that. But after the break we hit some important downtown shots. We also controlled the paint in this game and got a pretty good difference that might be crucial."
MACVAN, MILAN
Hemofarm Stada
"Buducnost was better and they deserve to celebrate tonight. We only had good defense in the first half and got a five-point lead. The atmosphere in the lockerroom was also very good and we expected that we could beat them. But in the second half Buducnost had an incredible shooting night. Furthermore, Dragicevic made a lot of problems to us at center and scored two decisive triples."
