Teo always gives too much room..that's not a luck thing.

And how many wake up calls does it take? I don't think that every following sh!t display can just be interpreted as "a wake up call". :D

Milos Teodosic has to take the blame for that because he knew there was only one thing the opposite player could do, and that's shoot the ball but he didn't even try to defend.

Let's note that Montenegro played without quite a few starters and important players in Nikola Pekovic, Nikola Vucevic, Goran Jeretin, Ivan Koljevic, Boris Bakic and even Omar Cook. It's unacceptable to lose against this side.

Serbia 88-63 Estonia (26-15, 24-13, 20-13, 18-22)

This is our third win in qualification so far. The match took place in the SPENS Arena in Novi Sad in front of 7,250 fans. We were shooting well, except for free throws which were horrible (4/11).

Nenad Krstic and Milos Teodosic both had 12 points.

Also today, Montenegro defeated Iceland 85-67 while Israel won 82-64 in Slovakia, which means we're still behind Montenegro in the standings.

Our next match will be in Israel. That will be a challenge and probably the biggest one we'll have to face during the entire campaign.

Quite the poor performance. First 5 games have been quite poor, hopefully we can turn it around in the next 5. I'd say, anything less than 5 wins would be a disappointment.

And somebody said we could have won a medal at the Olympics. :howler:


But no problem, as Dule (I think) would say, this will be a wake-up call for them. No really, from THIS game onwards we can expect huge changes. :D

But seriously - :wallbang:..I can't believe how this team has forgotten to play defence since the last WC they played. Absolutely amazing...

I get the feeling they don't really care, and know that even without playing their best, they will still qualify with little problems.
That would mean we'd have to beat Montenegro in Podgorica, with perhaps some of their starters back in the lineup.
Yep. We should still win though, especially after that embarrassing loss in Belgrade.
