The Take

One of these teams will likely hold a Top 16 position with four games left in the regular season after they play on Thursday, which will guarantee its fans a lot of fun for the next month at least. Strasbourg is undefeated at home after beating last year's champion, Real Madrid, and another Final Four team, Fenerbahce Istanbul, by an average of 14 points. Zvezda, after walloping Strasbourg in Belgrade by 22 in the season opener, found its second win last week on the road against Bayern. This game will decide if Strasbourg has mastered the home-win formula or Zvezda is in fact the better team. All eyes will be on Stefan Jovic of the visitors after he set the Euroleague's single-game assist record with 19 last week. He'll be confronted by veteran Louis Campbell and speedy Rodrigue Beaubois, who must help Strasbourg cut its 17 turnovers per game, tied for second-worst in the league. But the hosts' biggest problem might be closer to the basket, where centers Maik Zirbes and Vladimir Stimac combine for more than 25 points and 12 rebounds, while newcomer Quincy Miller and Marko Simonovic share 20 and 7 more, respectively, at power forward. Vladimir Golubovic and Romeo Travis will have to keep them busy while Kyle Weems tries to outduel Ryan Thomspon at small forward in what should be a close game between two teams feeling their best right now.

Quotes Head Coaches

"This game against Crvena Zvezda is like a small final for us. In order to continue to hope for a qualification we must win. But even if we will win, we will have no guarantee for the future. This is a game with a strong challenge... even more than the previous one. We know that Belgrade also comes here in order to obtain a good result. They will try to stop us playing our game. We remember the first game against Belgrade and the difficulty that we had to score baskets. It is expected that this game is still very complicated."
Crvena Zvezda Telekom Belgrade
"Before start of this Euroleague, Strasbourg was regarded as a mere "participant". We played our first game well, excellent if I may say, we outplayed them completely. However, after that first game, Strasbourg has shown that they are a serious team who have serious quality and who can win against any opponent, even Real and Fenerbahce, who they have beaten pretty easily. They are now a serious candidate for the Top 16, they are in good mood and in a better position then we are because they didn’t play a game in domestic championship over the last weekend, so they will fully prepared to play this game. We want to play a good game, also we want to be competitive, but at this point I can’t tell for sure for how much we can count on our captain Branko Lazic."


"Crvena Zvezda is surely the team playing with more intensity and aggressiveness in our group. We had a lot of difficulties during the first game and lost 25 balls. Their game is based on defense. The coach said this game will be different from the two other games that we won at home. It's gonna be a fight. We must will play, at least as the same level of them defensively to have a chance to win."
Crvena Zvezda Telekom Belgrade
"Lots of things have changed and happened since our first game in Belgrade. Now we play again against Strasbourg after our loss in the ABA League. They showed that they are great team on their home court, they beat both Fenerbahce and Real Madrid. For sure we can expect a tough game but we will try to win in France and make a big step towards the Top 16. I have started to train with the team, so I hope that I can help my teammates 100 percent."

Strasbourg rallies from 21 down to beat Zvezda

Strasbourg rallied from a 21-point second-half deficit to pull out a dramatic 78-75 win over visiting Crvena Zvezda Telekom Belgrade on Thursday night. It was the third win in as many home games for Strasbourg, which improved to 3-3, while Zvezda dropped to 2-4 in Group A. Quincy Miller and Zvezda came out of the gate hot. Miller hit 4 of team’s 7 triples in the first quarter and Zvezda buried 10 three-pointers before halftime and held an 18-point margin at the break. Miller made it 34-55 at the start of the third, but the hosts, led by Jeremy Leloup, slowly started to cut into the deficit. A 15-0 run that bridged the third and fourth quarters got them within 63-64, and a 10-0 run midway through the fourth put Strasbourg in front, 73-70. The hosts never relinquished the lead as they did not allow a single field goal in the final 12 minutes and 20 seconds of the contest. Leloup netted 24 points with 8 rebounds in victory.

After Mardy Collins opened Strasbourg's account with two free throws, Miller nailed his third three-pointer, making it 2-9 after 75 seconds.

Stefan Jovic fed Simonovic for a three-point play, before Golubovic scored a floater and Leloup a triple for the hosts, cutting the deficit to 11-14.

Jovic added a pair of free throws, before Thompson scored a fastbreak layup to make it 32-52 with two minutes to go in the half.

Third quarter: Hosts cut 21-point deficit to single digits

Miller continued where he left of, with a triple to start the third that made the difference 21 points. Campbell made a floater, and Leloup scored inside, 38-55.

After a timeout, Simonovic got a lucky bounce on a three-point attempt. Leloup made a put-back, but Simonovic drained another triple to extend it to 46-62. Golubovic had a tip-in, before Zirbes worked his way inside for a reverse layup, keeping the margin at 16 points. However, Leloup nailed a tough step-back triple, and Beaubois first made free throws, then finished a fastbreak with an easy layup to get Strasbourg within 56-64 going into the fourth quarter.

Fourth quarter: Strasbourg completes the comeback

Strasbourg’s run continued in the fourth. Beaubois fed Duport with a pass for an alley-oop layup, and after Duport followed it with long jumper, Beaubois knocked down a triple, capping a 15-0 run and making it 63-64. That forced a Zvezda timeout, after which the hosts did not score for more than three minutes. Meanwhile, Miller, Nikola Rebic and Guduric each made a pair of free throws to provide Zvezda with some breathing room, 63-70. However, Beaubois made 4-of-4 from the free throw line for the hosts, then had a steal and a fastbreak layup to get Strasbourg back within a point, 69-70 3:35. A tip in from Golubovic gave the hosts a lead with a tip in, then Weems followed it with a big fastbreak dunk to cap a 10-0 run, and a huge rally. After a timeout, Guduric and Beaubois traded a free throws before Campbell made a steal and went on to score a fastbreak layup-plus-foul that gave the hosts a 78-72 advantage with 83 seconds to go. Zirbes hit 2 free throws, but Miller made only one of two, making it 78-75 with 30 seconds remaining. Zvezda scored all 11 points in the quarter from the free throw line, but made one more defensive stand and had 3.7 seconds for the last shot. However, Simonovic missed a long final attempt at the buzzer, as Strasbourg had a historic comeback to celebrate.

Head Coaches

"It is necessary that we learn from this game. There is still much to do for the future. Belgrade had a level of excellent play in the first half. The players returned much more aggressive in the second half. The character we displayed during the last twenty minutes means a lot to me. Louis Campbell, Rodrigue Beaubois and Jeremy Leloup were excellent tonight. The turning point of the game was in the fifth foul for Jovic. We knew this was an opportunity to further elevate our level."
Crvena Zvezda Telekom Belgrade
"Congratulations to Strasbourg. We started the game very well offensively. We knew that the second half would be different. Strasbourg is a good team. We were handicapped by injuries. We had big problems in organizing the second half because Strasbourg defended very well."


"Coach’s speech at halftime was very hard. We had put all our heart into the game to win. I played well, but the whole team played very well in the second half. It is necessary that we learn to be consistent for 40 minutes not to have this kind of game."
