In the Game 2 of the ABA League 2 Quarter-finals, Podgorica have prevailed over Borac and became the first team to advance into the Semi-finals.
Podgorica have lost Game 1 by 4 points (90:86), but this did not stop them from dominating in the finish of the Game 2 and turning the series completely upside-down.

It has been a close game, where both squads have been exchanging the lead throughout the opening three quarters, but Podgorica have entered the last one with a 4-point lead, meaning that the Quarter-finals battle has been starting all-over again from the scratch in the final period.

However, that’s when Podgorica have pulled away. They have made the 10:2 run between 32nd and 37th minutes, that took them ahead by 12 points (64:52) and won eventually with the score of 77:65, advancing into the Semis with the aggregate score of 163:155.
