GAME REPORT


Fersped Rabotnicki 82 vs. PBC CSKA 81

Tonight's game was a competition with two very different halves and a very dramatic finish.  In the last 7 seconds of the game, Johnson scored 2 free throws, giving the locals a 82:80 advantage.

Right after this, Samardziev earned himself a unsportsmanlike personal foul. Radulov scored one free throw, after which, the Bulgarian team had the last 4 seconds of attack. 

CSKA's guard, Dechev, missed that shot and victory was handed to the Macedonian champions. 

There was nothing that pointed towards a game being decided in such a fashion.  Both teams started very lethargically, which nevertheless contributed to a very effective offensive game.

During the initial 20 minutes the teams scored a total of 107 points, signaling the coaches to strengthen their defences.  In the second half, the teams were much more defensively engaged, and hte lead changed hands several times. As a result, there was an enormous reduction in points scored in the second half (56).

Fersped Rabotnicki, with the help of good fortune and with 3 three-point-shots during the last two minutes, celebrated its victory, getting some satisfaction after the recent defeat against UNICS, which had a similar, but opposite finish. 

 

 

COACH QUOTES


Quotes Fersped Rabotnicki vs. PBC CSKA

Petko Delev (Ass. Head Coach - CSKA):
This was a game with two different half times, in first one we had a good offence, but a bad defence, and during the second one, we strengthened our defence, but our offence was tragic. It was normal that we lost. 

Jordancho Davitkov (Head Coach - Fersped Rabnotnicki):
Our 3-point shots were bad, we did not use clear shots, we had a poor defence and they out-jumped us.  When you win in such a situation, of course you'll be happy.

Hristo Nikolov (Player - CSKA):
At moments we played quite good but at the end we were finished by their 3-point shots.

Toni Simic (Player - Fersped Rabotnicki):
A difficult game.  We were lucky to have won this game.
