Game recap: Petrol Olimpija have grabbed a huge overtime win over Partizan NIS, their second of the season against the black and white side of Belgrade. This result is a huge news for Mornar, which now have mathematically secured themselves a Playoffs spot, as Partizan are still 2 wins behind them with 2 rounds remaining to be played. The black and white have been in front fort he majority of the game, but Dragons have managed to take it to overtime and celebrate in the extra time.

Key moments: The teams have entered the last minute of overtime with a tied score of 84:84. That's when Talor Battle and Devin Oliver contributed 2 points each to take their team up 88:84 with less than 20 seconds remaining. This turned out to be the key. Partizan NIS fought back and Vanja Marinković had a 3-point attempt in the final seconds for the victory, but failed to make it!

Man of the match: On offense, Gregor Hrovat was without an exception the leader of Petrol Olimpija this game, as he had 22 points (5 three pointers), alongside 4 assists, 3 rebounds and just as many steals. His valuation was 20 and he is our man of the match!

Can't trick the stats: Turnovers made the difference tonight. While Partizan had 17, Olimpija only turned over 12.
