Game recap: In the decisive third game of the AdmiralBet ABA League Semi-finals, Partizan NIS have prevailed over Budućnost VOLI at home in front of 6998 fans in packed Aleksandar Nikolić Sports Hall. This way, the black and white have and earned themselves a spot in the Finals for the first time since the 2012/13 season, while Budućnost VOLI failed to reach the Finals for the first time since the 2016/17 season. It has been a game, that could have been described as the fairly one-sided contest and the black and white have deservedly achieved the decisive triumph, that will take them towards the Final series.

Key moments: In the fourteenth minute of the game, the margin between the two sides was still only two offensive possessions high, as Partizan NIS were ahead by 6 points (34:29). However, that’s when the hosts went on a 19:1 run, that lasted for five minutes and that put Partizan NIS up by 23 points (53:30). That’s when everyone realized that there was to be no major comeback in this game.

Man of the match: Kevin Punter was the best player of Partizan NIS, as he led the black and white to the decisive win of the series against Budućnost VOLI. He had 30 points, 4 steals, 3 assists, 2 rebounds, and a valuation of 31 and has rightfully earned himself the man of the match title this time.

Can’t trick the stats: Field goal percentage, rebounding, passing, turnovers… Partizan NIS actually dominated every single statistical category this time around and has fully deservedly grabbed the ticket to the Finals.
