Mirza
Teletovic
Bosnia recorded yesterday a sweet victory against hosts which should give the team self esteem for the EC campaign.
At the end of the match Bosnia-H. looked pretty well in defense but the game against Greece should be an even greater challenge for the men of Aleksandar Petrovic. But also the offensive game that was stuttering 15 minutes against Germany will have to improve if BIH wants to overcome one of the toughest defenses in world basketball.
It will depend a lot on Bosnian magic triangle Zack Wright (195-G-85, college: Central Mo.), Nihad Djedovic (198-F-90, agency: Beo Basket) and Mirza Teletovic (206-F-85, agency: Beo Basket) who have not reached their peak performance. However the second half against Germany has been encouraging and maybe BIH can surprise Greece.
Greece plays with a rather tall line up with only 5 guards and it will be interesting how the Greeks will compensate the retirement of DiDi and the absence of Calathes.

Starting five BIH: Zack Wright, Nihad Djedovic, Ante Masic (200-F-85, agency: Interperformances) Mirza Teletovic, Andrija Stipanovic (209-C-86, agency: Beo Basket)
Starting five Greece: Spanoulis, Zisis, Papanikolau, Printezis, Bouroussis

9:19 the Greek let the ball circulate finding Zisis for an open midrange jump shot who opens the score. 2:0 for Greece

8:35 misunderstanding of Masic and Mirza Teletovic resulted in a turnover. 4:0

8:28 a nice drive to the hoop of Zack Wright. He finishes under pressure and gets a free throw.

8:20 Mirza takes the three over Printezis. It s good.

5:56 After a series of greek points Mirza hits again a three for the 13-11. Bosnia leads.

5:40 mistake by the Greeks. Andrija Stipanovic intercepts and passes the ball to Zack Wright who initiates a 3-1 fastbreak. Nihad Djedovic scores.

4:07 nice uptempo basketball. Zack Wright gets 2 three throws after going hard to the basket. The Bosnian team looks much much better than yesterday. Agile defense and nice transition. That might be the right mixture for this Greek team. One FT made.

3:50 Greeks repeatedly attacking basket by Kaimakoglu who gets charged with an offensive foul.

2:46 After Masic netted a nice threepointer of the corner Bosnia led 12:19. But in the next Greek attack Papanikolau has been forgotten in the paint.

2:06 Nihad Djedovic drives to the hoop but get off balance and misses the lay-up. Greeks play tough defense.

1:21 Papanikolau hits the three for the Greeks. 18:19. Bosnia still leads.

36.3 Zack Wright goes to the hoops and gets to the charity line. 18:21.

16.7 Bramos hits the three and gets fouled by Kikanovic. 22-21. Greeks take the lead. Bosnia loses unluckily the first quarter.

2nd quarter

9:52 Bramos can t follow Zack Wright and gets charged.

9:35 Zack Wright takes one of his rare shots for three and after the ball rebounded of the rim it dripped in.24:22. We are back. Not for long. Vougioukas answers with a turnaround jumper.

7:09. Much quicker basketball than yesterday. Sloukas can stop Zack Wright only by holding him.

6:37 Printezis makes a threepointer for the 30-31.

6:15 Gordic makes a pump fake and makes his jumper after he sent his defender to bring the cevaps .

6:00 Petrovic is upset after refs decided against Marko Sutalo (193-G-83, agency: BeoExcell) as he goes for a lay-up. Travelling? Not sure.

4:42 time out for BIH. After a Greek series they have established a tiny three point margin. 36-33. Zack Wright brings the ball.

4:07 Andrija Stipanovic gets the ball in the paint and makes a babyhook. 35:36. Greeks are still ahead but our team tries to close the gap through intense defense.

3:00 Nihad Djedovic dribbles trying to get a pnr play with Andrija Stipanovic on the right side. As Andrija Stipanovic cannot get a good position against Papanikolau Nihad Djedovic goes baseline and finishes with an up an under.

2:10 Mirza Mirza Teletovic closes the gap with his 16th point. But Printezis answers with an threepointer. 43:40. Greeks again take the lead.

1:25 Nihad Djedovic fouls Spanioulis as he elevates for the three but refs decide the foul has been before the shot.

44. 0 Mirza Teletovic is getting tightly defended but he doesn t care and shoots over his defender. 46:43. BIH trails but the captain is getting red hot. 19 points in the first half! 48-45 Nihad Djedovic sinks a jumper but Greeks answer 3.4 secs to be played in the first half. 48-45.

The score doesnt give the right picture of the game. The defense is intense but both sides are hitting their longrange shoots and play an uptempo basketball. Best Bosnian performance so far!
Mirza Teletovic made 5 of his 6 threepointers and pulled down 6 rebounds!!! Both teams have a FG-3 percentage of more than 50%. BIH hitted 7 of 12 attempts while Greece had 6/11.
Why are we trailing? We had four TO (11-7) more than Greece and Greece pulled down 4 more rebounds (15-19). This should improve in the second half. Bosnia had once 12 threepointers against Israel in Sofia and lost the match clearly. Bosnia needs more points in the paint but Greek centers are dominating.

3rd quarter

Nedzad Sinanovic (221-C-83) comes for Andrija Stipanovic.

Size matters !! ladies and gentleman.

9:45 Nedzad Sinanovic blocks Boroussis and the crowd is on their feet. What a block!

9:19 Mirza Teletovic misses a floater but.. Nedzad Sinanovic comes of the nowhere and slams the ball in basket!

7:47 Greeks definitely showing respect to Nedzad Sinanovic. No more drives to the basket, no more easy layups.

7:36 Marko Sutalo misses but Nedzad Sinanovic gets the offensive rebound51:49. Greece leads but we are coming back.

7:00 Greeks pass the ball to the corner. No one gets a hand in the face and Greeks lead 53-49.

6:24 Greeks are getting nervous. Their offense stutters and after having fouled Zack Wright they foul Marko Sutalo unsportsmanlike. 53-53. The following action brings BIh the lead as Nihad Djedovic makes lay up. 55-53.

5:42 Kaimakoglou get fouled and makes both. 55-55.

5:05 spectacular actions on both sides, Mirza Teletovic is falling behind but he releases the shot and it is good. 6th threepointer of him. Greeks answer with a three pointer.

4:26 Time out BIH Nedzad Sinanovic made his 4th point in six minutes. And BIH leads by one 62-61. Nedzad Sinanovic plays very well but Petrovic brings back Andrija Stipanovic. Why?

3:15 two easy layups for the Greeks as the new line up has not get aware of their match ups . However Marko Sutalo makes his first threepointer for the 65-65.

2:24 Printezis posts up against Mirza Teletovic. He bumps him, headfake, turnaround jumper and the refs give him a call. Why? Mirza Teletovic doesn t know, Printezis doesn t know and doesn t care. Nobody knows except the refs.

1:38 Mavrokefalidis bumps Andrija Stipanovic who falls. The Greek gets the ball immediately and scores while Andrija Stipanovic is on the ground.

1:26 foul against Gordic. He gets the throws and makes both. 69-66.

53.4 Zisis makes an offensive foul.

35.0 Now the refs call BIH for an offensive foul. Since BIH has exceeded team fouls. Greeks get two throws. 71-66.

20.0 Marko Sutalo makes his 2nd threepointer. 71-69. Much better game of the rookie in the Bosnian rows.

4th quarter

9:09 Mirza Teletovic makes his 7th threepointer -25 points.

8:17 Greeks go for the extrapass. After five passes Sloukas makes a shotfake and drops the ball to Mavrokefalidis who is alone under the basket, Great play! 75-72.

7:09 Teletovis posts up against Bramos. Turnaround jumper and it s good. 27 points. 75-74.

6:38 Kaiamkoglou dribbles in central position and elevates for the three. 78-74. These Greeks are mentally very strong keeping a clear mind.

5:56 Edin Bavcic (209-F/C-84, agency: Beo Basket) in for Andrija Stipanovic who has not shown big things today. Nihad Djedovic scores 5 points. After the first layup he steals the ball and is heading alone to the basket. As he sees a Greek player catching up with him he slows down and gets and 1-play. Well done Nihad. 79-78. We are leading.

4:32 Now Nihad Djedovic takes over. He goes aggressively to the basket and gets fouled again. Both FT successful. 81-78. 19 points of the new acquisition if Bayern Munich.

3:57 After Zisis made a nice two point jumper against Zack Wright Edin Bavcic gets a nice assist of Zeko and makes the 83-80.

3:08 after a Greek layup Masic gets called for an offensive foul. 83-82 for BIH.

2:55 to go. Time out for the Greeks. It s crunchtime babe! Ales Pipan is sitting in the arena and he has probably the same woes as Petrovic. Both teams played today very well and both teams will have to give their very best to defeat their opponent.

2:30 Zack Wright with a nice 1-1. He gets fouled but anyway he makes his floater. 85-82

2:00 And again Zack Wright 87-82.

1:27 After the Greeks scored Nihad Djedovic penetrates the zone from the right side and dishes for Andrija Stipanovic who gets the easy lay up.

1:03 After Kaimakoglou drives to the basket he gets blocked by Mirza Teletovic and Zack Wright. However it seems that has been some contact. Kaimaoglou holds his face. He plays with a protection mask but it seems that he has been hit. The German doctors are coming in. After two additional minutes Kaimaoglou gets up and leaves the court. Printezis comes in.

44.0 to go. Zack Wright misses a contested lay up.

29 BIH is so close to win this game. 89-84. Greeks stop the clock by Sloukas who fouls Zack Wright. He misses the second but Mirza Teletovic has the offensive rebound. No Greeks have give in and wait for the final buzzer.

0.0Game over. BIH wins 90-84.

Fantastic match of the Bosnian NT. Harun Mahmutovic is jumping around. The staff of Petrovic is also giving high fives. Only Petrovic is rather calm. While BIH NT is in the locker rooms. Greeks are stretching theirselves. They don t seem to care much about this defeat. For BIH it is the third win and definitely a milestone in their preparations. The BIH had again its three heroes. Mirza Teletovic was giving proof that he is the finest shooter in Europe. It s been very impressive that BIH was focused over the whole stretch which has been a problem in the past. However BIH still needs to improve their rebounding since we cannot expect every time a shooting percentage of far above 50%.
Great success of BIH which will face tomorrow superstrong Macedonia playing for the 1 st place in Ulm.

This will be his first season playing pro basketball and he was a highly regarded prospect coming out of High School and out of the JUCO ranks.
