Basketball players of the future are the only team without a victory in Euroleague and have suffered twice (against Red Star and Cedevita) in the first five rounds of the ABA League, which defended the championship title, but were too strong for Petrol Olimpija. It's really a problem. Aleksandra Džikić's previous advantage was a good advantage (25:10) and overcame problems caused by him Roko Badim with a series of nine consecutive points to lower the host's preference to 29:23.
Residents of Ljubljana who performed without injuries Scottie Reynolds, Mirza Begic in Blaža Mesičkathey lay behind the big -22 in the break, but they showed the teeth below. Badim stayed on the bench, but that's why Dražen Bubnić in Jan Špan hit every three threes. The third quarter was Olimpia from 30:19, five minutes before the end of the game, delayed only at 67:70, but in the end it was too short for sensationalism.
After the match, Olympian coach Zoran Martic admitted: "The future was better on the pitch, especially in the first half, when it was a great advantage, the second half was very correct, we approached three points after the end, and finally the home team played with three the next goals for the three points they got through our outstretched hands in the last seconds of the attack, the advantage you won then was no longer available to us.
