Partizan suffered a defeat in the EuroLeague. One crucial moment that influenced the final outcome occurred in the closing stages, specifically with two minutes and 10 seconds left in the game.
At that time, no one noticed a controversial moment. Partizan was leading by two points (77:75) and had possession of the ball below their basket.
Aleksa Avramovic took the throw-in, but Isaiah Cordinitie managed to prevent Kevin Panter from catching the ball that bounced towards the sideline. The Black and Whites’ captain wanted to retain possession for his team, but Cordinitie reacted excellently once again.
He jumped and caught the ball in front of Avramovic, after which he scored easily. However, it seems that neither the referees nor anyone from Partizan noticed that the Frenchman caught the ball after jumping from out of bounds.
EuroLeague released a video of the game’s highlights, and the controversial situation from the closing moments can be seen at the 2:30 mark. Partizan now has a record of 12 wins and 13 losses, occupying the 11th place in the EuroLeague standings.
