Euroleague BasketballAn independent disciplinary judge has sanctioned Partizan Belgrade with a fine of €15,001 for conduct detrimental to the competition on the part of the club's fans at the Week 5 regular season game on Thursday, November 26 at Pionir Arena. Debris was thrown onto the court at various times before the game, delaying its start by a few minutes. During the game, more objects were thrown, one of which hit an Olympiacos player shooting free throws. Objects were thrown at game referees, too. The total sanction consists of two different fines, the minimum €5,001 for aggression against referees or team personnel and €10,000 for throwing objects to disturb the course of the game or endanger its participants. This decision may be appealed by the club.
