Partizan NIS have thrilled their fans with the home win against Crvena zvezda mts in the second game of the Serbian National Championship Finals and tied the series to 1:1.

However, with Zvezda leading by two points, Rade Zagorac stepped up and scored a game winning three-pointer just seconds before the end, to set the final score of 73:72.
