Eurocup 2008 / 2009: Turk Telekom- Zadar 89 : 82 ( 65 : 57 ) ( 43 : 33 ) ( 28 : 13 )

A very poor start by Zadar was once again a deciding factor in Zadar's loss. They fell behind early, by as many as 17
in the first quarter ( 11 : 28 ), then by 20 at 18 : 38, mid way through the second.

When it seemd that it was all over, Zadar woke up and finished the half with a 15 - 5 run, which brought them within
manageable 10 points as they headed for the locker room.

Third quarter started well and behind phenomenal play by Ivanov Zadar first managed to get to 42 : 48, then 51 : 56
towards the end of the quarter. Rancic and Stipcevic also played well during this time.

Ivanov scored 2 baskets in a row off offensive boards, to start the final quarter and it was 61 : 65.

Hosts pulled away to 8 points again, but then Stipcevic and Rancic sparked an 11- 2 run by Zadar with a couple
three pointers, and suddenly we were looking at 75 : 78 with a little less than 2 minutes to go. Unfortunately for Zadar
hosts had their answers and even 2 more three pointers by Stipcevic in the finl 90 seconds did not help.

Ivanov was phenomenal with 23 pointsa and 16 board, Gecevski scored 15, Stipcevic 17. Rancic 11, Juby 9.
