Mirza
Teletovic
Germany BIH

Venue: Ratiopharm-Arena, 23.08.2013,20:30h
Attendance: approx. 2500

Only two weeks before the start coach Aleksandar Petrovic is under tremendous pressure. Only one of the 4 games the Bosnian team played so far has been won. It s not so much the record of these four games that give Aleksandar Petrovic worries but the manner the Bosnian team played these games. The offense the team played during the qualifiers giving it the leading position in scored points is currently one of the weakest points of the team.
Particularly Mirza Mirza Teletovic (206-F-85, agency: Beo Basket)/Brooklyn_Nets/51060">Mirza Mirza Teletovic (206-F-85, agency: Beo Basket) the only NBA player of the team is currently not showing the performances the team needs so much.

Starting Five BIH: Zack Wright Nihad Nihad Djedovic (198-F-90, agency: Beo Basket)- Ante Masic- Mirza Mirza Teletovic/Brooklyn_Nets/51060">Mirza Mirza Teletovic- Andrija Andrija Stipanovic (209-C-86, agency: Beo Basket)
Starting Five GER: Giffey- Schaffartzik-Staiger-Benzin-Tibor Pleiss (215-C-89)

6:57 Andrija Stipanovic not coming to help Masic against Benzing 4-5
5:57 block Mirza Teletovic/Brooklyn_Nets/51060">Mirza Mirza Teletovic
5:48 defensive Tadda comes
5:28 Schaffartzik and one Germany taking the lead 7-5
4:51 Nihad Djedovic brings the Ball, Edin Bavcic (209-F/C-84, agency: Beo Basket) instead of Mirza Teletovic/Brooklyn_Nets/51060">Mirza Mirza Teletovic who has not found his rhythm nor his spacing in defense
3:46 instant three pointer of Edin Bavcic
3:28 Andrija Stipanovic 2nd foul - > Kikanovic. Boxing out is not functioning.
2:51 Kikanovic on the perimeter against Guenther. King lob pass in the completely abandoned zone. Tibor Pleiss dunks. 15-8 Germany.
1:43 17-8. Bosnian team struggles form beyond the arc. In defense many easy points since too much space in the zone. Bosnia has problems against most basic plays like cut n fill.
17 sec to go Mirza scores after a drive to hoop with a jumper out of contact.

2nd quarter

Muhamed Pasalic (192-G-87) comes for Wright.
9:10 Benzing shoots over Muhamed Pasalic. Germany controls the game. Tough defense and combining outside shots with simple but efficient offensive actions. 23-10.
8:10 second block Mirza. He tries to help the team despite not having his shot.
7:35 first nice action of the the Bosnian team. After an offensive rebound of Mirza the German defense has forgot about Andrija Stipanovic who finishes with an uncontested left-hand layup. 23:12.
6:57 after a defensive effort of Zack Wright Nihad Nihad Djedovic finishes the fastbreak for the 23:14. Bosnia seems to consolidate at least defensively.
6:18 Mirza gets after a throw in a jumper and nets it perfectly.
5:19 The German team had two TO in a very short period and both times Nihad Djedovic doesn t make mistakes.
4:40 to go. Mirza hits a three point jumper. The captain is getting his rhythm. Will this help him or will he be overmotivated.
3:59 Nihad Djedovic misses a threepointer but from the left side Zeko sneaked in and easily sinks the lay up after n offensive rebound.
2:46 very important moments. Schaffartzik brings Germany back in front 27-25.
2:07 Nihad Djedovic gives the answer. Midrange jumper for 27-27. Nihad Djedovic has a nice performance.
1:23 after a successful fastbreak of Schaffartzik Germany took again the lead but a well created Threepointer of Nemanja Gordic (192-PG-88) brings Bosnia back :29-30.
0:26 Schaffartzik plays a maginc no look pass. The whole Bosnian team has forgot about Seifferth and the young PF gets an uncontested layup. Easy points- This will be certainly a point in the locker room.
Last action for BIH in the first half. Mirza misses a threepointer. This game is not a beauty but Bosnia is still in the game due to a good defensive effort in the second quarter.

3rd quarter:

Germany has the ball possession but Benzing commits an offensive foul.

9:30 The opponent if Mirza slips and Mirza gets an open shot 32-31 BIH leads.
8:16 Mirza tries to penetrate but since he is completely off-balance while raising for the jumper. Luckily Nihad Djedovic has anticipated and Mirza can dish of for an easy lay-up. This should be a natural approach to the game and not a emergency pass.
7:14 Both teams have problems to get in the set game.
6:43 After a very doubtful situation where Wright has been held by Tadda. Refs don t give the unsportsmanlike foul. After a missed shot of Nihad Djedovic Mirza tips in.11 points for the captain.
5:38 Zirbes gets twice the offensive board and gets a 2+1. Bosnia has still his box-out problem.
4:56 Nice penetration of Zack who sends with a nice head fake german defenders in the wrong direction. Mirza flies in and throws down a nice dunk.
$:48. Marko Sutalo (193-G-83, agency: BeoExcell) steals the ball. Only one German defender can follow him and Nihad Djedovic. Nihad Djedovic finishes the action and gets on the charity stripe and misses.
$:20 Mirza gets a pass of Nihad Djedovic but instead of taking the shot he takes two steps to the side and gets two defenders standing on his feet. No Mirza lost his confidence in his shot.
3:01 NBA action Nihad Djedovic gives an alley oop to Mirza who is already almost under the rim but he catches the ball somehow and throws down a dunk. 42-46. Bosnian leads.
2:40 Benzing gets a foul and doesn t make mistakes. 44-46
2:21 after a tough foul Andrija Stipanovic, Zirbes is upset. Petrovic reacts. Sinanovic gets the chance.

3,7 Germans seem to be deterred by the presence of Nedzad Sinanovic (221-C-83) They tried to score of midrange but missed. Sinanovic cleans the boards.
Surprise surprise: Petrovic fields an extremely small line up. Mirza Teletovic/Brooklyn_Nets/51060">Mirza Mirza Teletovic and four guards. The action on the right wing goes wrong and the team has to take an emergency shot. Mirza Teletovic/Brooklyn_Nets/51060">Mirza Mirza Teletovic misses the tip in.

4th quarter:

9:40 Sinanovic gets the ball in central position two meters to the basket. Minihook 46-54.
8:46 Tadda answers with a three pointer. 49-54
7:56 Marko Sutalo strikes back with a three pointer 49-57. No this will not be an easy one.
7:24 Doreth doesn t dare to take the drive against Sinanovic but he takes jumper and its good
7:04 51-60. Mirza Teletovic/Brooklyn_Nets/51060">Mirza Mirza Teletovic has 20 points. Bosnia doesn t play well but defense pays off and the team gets its confidence while Germany seems to lose control of the game.
6:34 Mirza Teletovic/Brooklyn_Nets/51060">Mirza Mirza Teletovic gets the ball outside the perimeter and hits it! 23 points.
6:11 Benzing against Mirza Teletovic/Brooklyn_Nets/51060">Mirza Mirza Teletovic and Benzing makes an difficult shot while falling back. 53-63
Nice scene. Tibor Pleiss been called for an offensive foul and doesn t understand the decision. Mirza Mirza Teletovic/Brooklyn_Nets/51060">Mirza Mirza Teletovic shows his former teammate why he has been called and giving him some encouraging words.
5:38 Sinanovic leaves the court. Kikanovic comes in. Sinanovic has played a great game. Mirza Teletovic/Brooklyn_Nets/51060">Mirza Mirza Teletovic gets against the ball and hits against a threepointer. 26 points. This looks now much better. Probably the best three quarters of Mirza Teletovic/Brooklyn_Nets/51060">Mirza Mirza Teletovic in the past three weeks. 53-68.
4:28 Mirza gets the ball at the threepoint line but he takes the step aside and he misses the contested shot. Gnther doesn t hesitate and nets his threepointer to 58-68.
2:41 Wright is nervous. His second turnover when he tries to pass the ball through the zone and 4 german players.
1:50 to go Wright gives an alley oop but Nihad Djedovic takes the safe version and makes the easy lay up. 60-72. If BIH keeps focused this will be the second win in the preparations.
Last minute Wright and Nihad Djedovic forgot about the shot clock.
73:62 BIH wins the match after strong 25 minutes.
Bosnia played its best game so far. However after the Macedonian heroics BIH will have to step up if it wants to gets in the second round. The team relied too much on outside shooting while Big men have been mostly no factor. In defense Nihad Djedovic , the Mirza Teletovic of the second half and Sinanovic stood out. However stronger opponents will not be too much impressed by the defense like the young German team.

Best scorers for BIH: Mirza Teletovic/Brooklyn_Nets/51060">Mirza Mirza Teletovic 26 points (9rebs, 2 blks, FG3 - 4/12, FG2-7/11), Nihad Djedovic 18 points (FG 9/13, 3 rebs, 3 ass), Zack Wright (195-G-85, college: Central Mo.) 8 points (6ass, 6rebs, 5 TO, FG 4/7)
