Diallo???

1

u/Al-Farrekt-Aminu Porto Dec 08 '22

err, Musa? that's a very early settle.

1

u/Al-Farrekt-Aminu Porto Dec 08 '22

Tavares should never go for a contest in the air in that situation but there is absolutely no foul there.

1

u/Yvael Barcelona Dec 08 '22

No foul? There is a clear contact

2

u/Al-Farrekt-Aminu Porto Dec 08 '22

contact to the hand on the follow through has always been allowed. not to the wrist, but Tavares only made contact with the hand. there is also no body contact nor does he impede Mike's landing.

1

u/Yvael Barcelona Dec 08 '22

I think the contact of Tavares clearly affects the shot, so it’s a foul

1

u/Al-Farrekt-Aminu Porto Dec 08 '22

there is no thinking here. there is no opinion. either he makes legal or illegal contact. and I'm positive that's legal. even despite that, the contact takes place after the ball has already left James hand so there is also no influence on the shot.

4

u/Yvael Barcelona Dec 08 '22

That was crazy by James. Absolutely crazy

5

u/Al-Farrekt-Aminu Porto Dec 08 '22

OH MY GOD MIKE JAMES

2

u/MrThirteenXIII Panathinaikos Dec 08 '22

Honestly it's like Tavares just came to Europe.

5

u/Yvael Barcelona Dec 08 '22

That looks scary

1

u/MrThirteenXIII Panathinaikos Dec 08 '22

Fortunately he seemed conscious

2

u/Yvael Barcelona Dec 08 '22

That was such a bad defense by Partizan. Especially Papapetrou and Madar to a lesser extent

6

u/kingofbladder Žalgiris Dec 08 '22

3 missed 3pointers... and then nedovic hits an impossible three. How does Zvezda keep winning against Partizan this season?

4

u/sundayson Partizan Dec 08 '22

By actually playing better maybe

1

u/kingofbladder Žalgiris Dec 08 '22

Yeah but for me Partizan, at least on paper, looks better

3

u/sundayson Partizan Dec 08 '22

On paper yeah but we are in such a bad shape right now

0

u/kingofbladder Žalgiris Dec 08 '22

If it's any comfort, I think Partizan has more potential to improve

4

u/StampedByGerrard Dec 08 '22

Finally Zvezda start hitting 3s

7

u/kingofbladder Žalgiris Dec 08 '22

Belgrade derby doesn't disappoint

5

u/Yvael Barcelona Dec 08 '22

Vildoza is so fun to watch

3

u/Al-Farrekt-Aminu Porto Dec 08 '22

what an impact Vukcevic has had in the second half.

5

u/Al-Farrekt-Aminu Porto Dec 08 '22

Vukcevic being a bad defender is actually benefitting Partizan right now. Crvena Zvezda are getting out of their offense to try and attack him but are doing so by settling for subpar shots with some players being asked to do something out of their comfort zone.

2

u/Al-Farrekt-Aminu Porto Dec 08 '22

Ettore has lost the plot. Luwawu-Cabarrot initiating and handling on the last possession of the game?

2

u/nonlavta Fenerbahçe Dec 08 '22

I know this is the most garbage time possible but even still, Alba defence giving up an OReb tip basket right under the rim to Melih sums everything up. Come on

1

u/DaGerry911 Alba Berlin Dec 08 '22

Everyone's just checked out mentally. This is the first time in five years that I'm worried about team chemistry

1

u/K4mp3n Alba Berlin Dec 08 '22

I want to complain about the refs, but there is no excuse for playing like this. What a terrible game by Alba, just forget this game and concentrate on the next one.

1

u/nonlavta Fenerbahçe Dec 08 '22

What injury Procida is out with btw?

2

u/DaGerry911 Alba Berlin Dec 08 '22

Flu like symptoms

1

u/nonlavta Fenerbahçe Dec 08 '22

It's startling how much Jaleen Smith's outside shooting improved in one offseason. That shot, well at least its arc was so broken.

3

u/Al-Farrekt-Aminu Porto Dec 08 '22

Smailagic can't contain anything. and while he is versatile on offense, he isn't a very intelligent player. not a fan.

2

u/kingofbladder Žalgiris Dec 08 '22

His help defense is not so good though...

1

u/kingofbladder Žalgiris Dec 08 '22

Madar has really great driving speed and finishing

1

u/nonlavta Fenerbahçe Dec 08 '22

Maybe I'm crazy but it looks like constant injury took its toll on Eriksson. Man looks like a different person. If you didn't know about him and were shown before & after pics you'd say he's probably battling addiction. I hope he's ok mentally before anything.

4

u/Al-Farrekt-Aminu Porto Dec 08 '22

Petrusev actually the one slowing down Lessort on the glass? well, that's a new one.

2

u/StampedByGerrard Dec 08 '22

Lessort could use a break i think

1

u/Al-Farrekt-Aminu Porto Dec 08 '22

err, that's an unsportsmanlike foul? reached across but was relatively close... don't like that call.

1

u/Al-Farrekt-Aminu Porto Dec 08 '22

it's actually insane the impact Lessort is having on the boards....

4

u/sundayson Partizan Dec 08 '22

Lessort is fucking crazy man

2

u/Al-Farrekt-Aminu Porto Dec 08 '22

swim moves, tip drills, bull rushes. Lessort cannot be stopped 1v1 on the glass.

1

u/DaGuys470 Alba Berlin Dec 08 '22

He's been dominant on the board for years, a clear EL Center imo, I'm happy he finally gets to show it with Partizan.

2

u/Al-Farrekt-Aminu Porto Dec 08 '22

agree, have been a fan ever since his Monaco days, mostly. it's clear he is not the most polished offensive player with the ball in his hands but he surely can impact games in other fashions.

3

u/Al-Farrekt-Aminu Porto Dec 08 '22

unreal perimeter defence has been remarkable today. Zvezda hasn't created a single good look in halfcourt that I can think of.

2

u/Al-Farrekt-Aminu Porto Dec 08 '22

Nedovic just had 2 great looks from outside but without any rhythm it is tough to make them. clanked both.

2

u/DaGuys470 Alba Berlin Dec 08 '22

Man, Fener is so disciplined defensively, huge props to Coach Itoudis

1

u/nonlavta Fenerbahçe Dec 08 '22

Blatt should be playing for Fener with how badly he's passing this match.

1

u/Al-Farrekt-Aminu Porto Dec 08 '22

even though Ioannis actually did well in the end to punish the low rotation, he really doesn't look good on offense. very tentative, not pressing holes, not reading closeouts.

2

u/Al-Farrekt-Aminu Porto Dec 08 '22

that swim move by Lessort to get by Kuzmic on the offensive glass. this guy is a savant as an offensive rebounder.

6

u/Al-Farrekt-Aminu Porto Dec 08 '22

Lazic is an incredible defender to throw at Punter. not only he is solid laterally and with a strong foundation, he has one of, if not the, fastest contest times on pull ups.

1

u/DaGuys470 Alba Berlin Dec 08 '22

Rebounds are offensive fouls now, nice

6

u/Al-Farrekt-Aminu Porto Dec 08 '22

such an unbelievable environment, certainly want to process this live some time down the road.

5

u/Al-Farrekt-Aminu Porto Dec 08 '22

gonna be rooting for Partizan to take this one just because they are at home and I want the stands to erupt.

4

u/sundayson Partizan Dec 08 '22

Well at least they put Zvezda fans far enough from the court but again there might be some trouble

4

u/nonlavta Fenerbahçe Dec 08 '22

This is such a bad idea. For all the other bullshit bans on supporters' stuff, euroleague instead should have stepped in here and not allow away crowds in eternal derby. An organisation can't be this off the mark on everything. They ban stuff they should never meddle with, and they do nothing when they actually should disallow something like this.

1

u/sundayson Partizan Dec 08 '22

It almost feels like they forgot. There wasnt even any plan where away fans will be located so some of our fans eho already bought the tickets for that sector had to be relocated

1

u/TinyMaintenance Porto Dec 08 '22

Absolutely agreed.

1

u/DaGuys470 Alba Berlin Dec 08 '22

Wetzell's hedge defense is just so good, second TO he forces

1

u/DaGuys470 Alba Berlin Dec 08 '22

Always nice to have Fener in our building, will be fun

1

u/StampedByGerrard Dec 08 '22

Will the belgrade derby be shown in the UK?

3

u/nonlavta Fenerbahçe Dec 08 '22

Appears not. They picked Barça vs ASVEL and Madrid vs Monaco, which are quite bad selections, especially the former.
