2013-14TournamentRound 2
Crvena Zvezda Telekom Belgrade came back from a 13-point fourth quarter deficit to knock off Club Joventut Badalona 69-67 and take a big step towards reaching the final of the Euroleague Basketball Nike International Junior Tournament - Milan. Crvena Zvezda used a 20-2 fourth quarter run and Stefan Lazarevic made two free throws with 13.5 seconds left that proved to be the game winners in the showdown of the two Day One winners in Group A. Crvena Zvezda improved to 2-0 and will take Team Brazil on Saturday while Joventut dropped to 1-1 and will face Cajasol Seville in its final game of the group. Lazarevic and Vojislav Stojanovic both scored 20 points for the Serbian club and Danilo Ostojic added 10. Xabi Lopez scored 18 points for the reigning champion and Zoran Nikolic had 13 points and 10 rebounds while Francesc Iturria added 11 points in the loss. Neither team could pull away in the first quarter with three points being the biggest lead for either side. Crvena Zvezda used a 6-0 run to lead 6-3 and Joventut was leading 13-10. In total there were six lead changes and two ties in the first quarter, which ended deadlocked at 14-14. Crvena Zvezda opened the second period with the first seven points to make it 21-14. But then Badalona started hitting its three-point shots with Iturria and Lopez going back-to-back in a 9-0 run for a 30-25 lead. Joventut was up 35-28 at halftime. Crvena Zvezda cut the gap to 35-33 and the margin was 40-36 when Badalona took control with an 11-0 surge for a 51-36 advantage. The lead was 56-44 after three quarters. Crvena Zvezda used the long ball to get back into the game with Stojanovic nailing two triples and Aleksandar Aranitovic hitting one. And then Ostojic drained a three-pointer to give Crvena Zvezda the lead 63-61. The run ended up being 20-2 to make it 66-61. Lopez however nailed a three-pointer and Nikolic knotted the game at 66-66. Lazarevic answered by knocking down two free throws with 13.5 seconds left and then Joventut committed a back court violation on the inbounds pass before Aranitovic split two foul shots with 7.9 seconds to play to make it 69-66. Sergi Costa was fouled with 1.7 seconds remaining and made the first before intentionally missing the second. But Crvena Zvezda was able to corral the rebound and the victory.
