Brose Bamberg clinched its third victory on the 5th matchday of the Turkish Airlines EuroLeague.
The German champion won against Red Star in Belgrade with 75:69. It was almost a start-finish victory for Brose in front of 5892 spectators at the Kombank Arena. The Bamberg team took the lead after two minutes (6:4) and did not give up the remaining time. Three Brose players scored double-digit points: Rubit (15), Hickman (12) and Radosevic (11).
Andrea Trinchieri: "It was a battle, a very tough game. It is never easy to be in this arena and play with personality. I told my players ten days ago: at the moment it's important that we want to win, that we suffer, suffer together, go after every lose ball, fight together for the win. We understood that. We played a great first quarter, in the second we played so lala - but there's always an opponent who doesn't make it easy for you. The third quarter was ok again, but the result was close. We stayed calm, played good defense and made the right decisions on offense."Alle Nachrichten
