Game recap: Petrol Olimpija have many reasons to celebrate on Saturday night, as they are now officially back on the winning track with 2nd straight win in the ABA League, but they have also grabbed a hugely important game on the road in Skopje and have definitely saved themselves from a possibility of falling into a danger zone at the bottom of the standings. They are now 4 wins ahead of MZT, with 3 rounds more to go.

Key moments: Olimpija were in front for the majority of the first half, but MZT Skopje Aerodrom fought back in the final minutes and went to the big break with a 2-point lead on their record. However, the key moments happened afterwards – the green and white dominated the third quarter, when they allowed the hosts only 5 points and have decided the winner in this period, which they ended with a 21-point lead!

Man of the match: Jordan Morgan was the best man in the court this time as he scored 16 points, had 5 rebounds, 1 assist, 3 steals, 2 blocks and a valuation of 22. He is our man of the match!

Can’t trick the stats: Petrol Olimpija had 25 assists and 12 turnovers. MZT Skopje Aerodrom had 14 assists and 20 turnovers. This numbers say everything.
