Cedevita Zagreb managed to achieve important road victory by defeating Gran Canaria, 86-89 on Tuesday night in a game that pulled the winners to second place in Group I with a 2-2 record.
Cedevita is now in position to qualify for the quarterfinals with a win over Hemofarm Stada next week, while Gran Canaria still has chances at 1-3.
Interestingly enough Cedevita’s win brought back memories of a recent overtime thriller in which they also defeated Gran Canaria, when the two teams combined for a Eurocup record with 34 threes.
This time two teams combined for the 28 three pointers. Cedevita was paced by sharp shooting of SF Damjan Rudez (23 points, 5-of-7 threes) and SG Bracey Wright (23 points, 5-of-6 threes).
