Zlatibor is the king of comebacks! The league newcomers have once again managed to return from a big deficit and to win the game. This time, they defeated Helios Suns despite being down by 11 points early in the 4th quarter.

In a very exciting ending, the heroes for Zlatibor this evening were Petar Vorkapić and Nemanja Protić. At the score of 74:73 for Zlatibor and with less than 2 minutes left on the game clock, Petar Vorkapić managed to steal the ball and then to make an AND-1 lay-up – 77:73. After that, Helios Suns troops made a turnover on the other side of the court, while in the following play Nemanja Protić made a very difficult 3-point shot at the buzzer to seal the win for Zlatibor – 80:73.
