Partizan Belgrade won their duel against Monaco after an epic battle and three extra times in the semi-finals of the Istanbul Cup (120-114).
There are preseason games where the stake sometimes exceeds that of a friendly game. This was the case with the meeting between Partizan led by Zeljko Obradovic and AS Monaco led by Zvezdan Mitrovic. After a fairly balanced second half, neither team was able to maintain its lead to resolve the situation in regulation time.
Belgrade managed to pull through to secure its place in the preseason tournament final thanks to Alen Smailagic (32 points, 8 rebounds), Zach LeDay (23 points), Kevin Punter (21 points) and Yam Madar (19 points) . On the Monegasque side, Rob Gray scored 19 points, Danilo Andjusic added 17, Donte Hall 15, and Alpha Diallo and Paris Lee 14 each.
Another bomb that could change the course of the season of AS Monaco, a possible arrival of Mike James, who has just formalized his departure from CSKA Moscow and who would be on the shelves of the Roca Team. Another insistent rumor, that of the arrival of Does thomas (2.03 m, 35 years old) according to Mozzart Sport.
