If there is some comfort for the Belgrade side after this defeat it is the fact that they would not have qualified for the Playoffs even if they had won this match.

2018/19 ABA League 2 regular season, Round 22, Wednesday, 13.3.2019:
LOVĆEN 1947 - Dynamic VIP PAY 89:82 (20:17, 24:21, 20:24, 25:20)
Dynamic VIP PAY won't play in the 2019 ABA 2 Playoffs. That was clear even before the Belgrade team have finished their game against Lovćen 1947, because in the other match Borac were leading by 30 points against Sutjeska. And we all knew before this round that Dynamic VIP PAY would need to score the win and to hope that Borac would lose their game... Nothing of that happened.
Lovćen 1947 defeated Dynamic VIP PAY and finished the season with a win. The hero of the home team was Miloš Popović, who scored 29 points this evening, while he also had 9 rebounds. In the away team Miloš Glišić made a double double performance with 20 points and 10 rebounds.
Lovćen 1947 have therefore ended the 2018/19 ABA 2 campaign with the overall score of 11-11, which was enough for the 7th place on the standings. On the other side Dynamic VIP PAY remained at the 5th spot with the overall score of 12-10... Just outside the Playoffs zone.
