Game recap: In the Game 1 of the AdmiralBet ABA League Semi-finals, Crvena zvezda mts have used their home court advantage to prevail over Cedevita Olimpija in excellent atmosphere in packed Aleksandar Nikolić Sports Hall in Belgrade and make the first step towards the Finals. After a game, in which the red and white have been in front almost throughout the playing time, the Belgrade side are 1:0 up in the series and only need one more triumph in order to advance into the Finals. This is the third win by the Belgrade powerhouse over the Dragons of Ljubljana and they remain unbeaten in the head to head battles between Crvena zvezda mts and Cedevita Olimpija in the 2021/22 AdmiralBet ABA League season.

Key moments: At the big break, Crvena zvezda mts had a 5-point lead (53:48), and as the second half begun, Edo Murić cut the gap to only 3 points (53:50). However, that’s when a 5:0 run by Crvena zvezda mts began, that put them up by 8 points (58:50) with 18 minutes to go in the game. As it turned out later in the clash, Cedevita Olimpija did not manage to make it anybody’s game again until the very end.

Man of the match: Luka Mitrović had a fantastic game for Crvena zvezda mts, as he led his team towards the 1:0 lead in the series. He had 21 points, 7 rebounds, 1 assist, 1 steal, and a valuation of 28 on his record and has deservedly become the man of the match.

Can’t trick the stats: Crvena zvezda mts have outrebounded Cedevita Olimpija 38:28. The dominance on the glass was what paved their way towards the comfortable win in the end.
