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)

3:46 instant three pointer of Edin Bavcic

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.

2nd quarter

Muhamed Pasalic (192-G-87) comes for Wright.

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.
