ABA League 2, Round 2, Friday, 14 October 2021:
PELISTER-BITOLA - Sutjeska 93:73 (24:23, 27:24, 27:16, 15:10)
In the last game of the Zlatibor Regular Season Tournament, Pelister-Bitola have prevailed over Sutjeska.
This is the first ever ABA League 2 win in the history of the league newcomers Pelister-Bitola, following their first round defeat against Lovćen 1947. They are therefore on a 1-1 record after the first regular season tournament, just like Sutjeska on the other side, that have prevailed over Rogaška in Round one.
It has really been a close game all until the middle of the third quarter. Pelister-Bitola departed to the big break with a 4-point advantage thanks to the first half buzzer-beater by Marjan Mladenović, but managed to increase their lead to double digits midway through the third (68:54 in 26th minute). That was a point from which there was no chance for a return for Sutjeska.
The final score of the game was 93:73 in favour of Pelister-Bitola.
