Crvena Zvezda shuts down Zalgiris for second straight win

By Eurohoops team/ [email protected]

A solid run down the stretch was all that Crvena Zvezda needed to beat Zalgiris Kaunas 73 – 61 at home and register its second consecutive win in EuroLeague.

With the score 60 – 58, Red Star went on to hit eight unanswered points that handed them a 10-point advantage with 1:11 left. There was no turning back from that margin.

Nikola Kalinic scored 13 out of his team-high 15 points in the second half while grabbing five rebounds to pace Zvezda. He dropped four points in a row during the decisive 8-0 run and heard the fans shouting “Kalina-Kalina” after seeing one of their favorites making his EuroLeague return to the team in style.

More to come…
