Veterans Bjelica and Simonovic give Zvezda thrilling road win

Crvena Zvezda mts Belgrade claimed a heart-stopping 78-79 victory over Brose Bamberg in a thrilling Game of the Week. In a pulsating atmosphere at Brose Arena, Zvezda thrilled the large contingent of travelling fans when Charles Jenkins hit the go-ahead basket with 24 seconds remaining, and Darius Miller couldn’t convert Bamberg’s last-second chance to win. Zvezda improved to 3-4 with the win, while dropping the German champs to 2-5. Veterans Milko Bjelica and Marko Simonovic were the stand-out performers, scoring 18 and 17 points respectively for the winners, while Stefan Jovic provided 12 points and 5 assists. Marko Guduric added 11 points and Jenkins 10. Nicolo Melli paced Bamberg with a double-double of 16 points and 10 rebounds, Nikos Zisis recorded 11 points and 9 assists, Miller netted 14 points and Janis Strelnieks 12.

Brose started strong with a pair of triples from Lucca Staiger accounting for the first points. Zvezda didn’t convert a field goal for four minutes, but gradually grew into the game and a low-scoring first quarter ended with Brose ahead 14-11. But Zvezda proceeded to control the second stanza, gaining its first lead through the influential Bjelica and grabbing a double-digit advantage shortly before half-time with Guduric’s coast-to-coast lay-up. The visitors led 29-38 at the break, but the nature of the game changed entirely afterward, with 3 consecutive triples from Melli sparking a flurry of points which also included a pair of long-range strikes from Simonovic. Bamberg scored more points in the third quarter than it had managed in the entire first half and led 61-58 entering the fourth. The game stayed close throughout a tremendously exciting final quarter, with five lead changes in the last 3:42 before Jenkins’s layup finally won it.

Head Coaches

TRINCHIERI, ANDREA
Brose Bamberg
"I stick with my guys, I love them for the way they fought against everybody with the problems we have, and we deserve a different ending. We have to improve three or four mistakes which were very important, but really I don’t know what to say. We received a basket in transition which was last basket that we cannot receive because we had to get back. We received 2 threes from Simonovic where we forgot the game plan, and we received a lay-up on a baseline inbound where we made a mistake. "
RADONJIC, DEJAN
Crvena Zvezda mts Belgrade
"It was a big success for us. We played very well on defense during the first half, we scored some easy points in transition offense. I expected in the second half more from Bamberg and they played excellent in the third quarter, although it was a disaster for us on defense. After that we got better on offense and defense and, at the end, one good defense gave us the success."

THEIS, DANIEL
Brose Bamberg
"Coach said he’s proud of us because we fought the whole game… He said we gotta stop doing the little mistakes and then at the end we are going to win one or two more games. Now we have lost four close games. We had the last shot and we missed it again. We can play with anybody. "
SIMONOVIC, MARKO
Crvena Zvezda mts Belgrade
"It was a big game and a great win. We didn’t open well, but we came back – with aggressive defense and fastbreak offense we controlled the game. They came back in the third quarter, but we didn’t give them the answer in the last play and we deserved the win."
