However, Lorenzo Brown scored four consecutive points and, with 1:33 left, cut Maccabi's deficit to 3 points (66-69).

Crvena Zvezda took the timeout but lost the ball, and on the side of the court, Roman Sorkin successfully tipped the ball, leaving the hosts with a 1-point advantage (69-68).

Luca Vildoza's desperate 3-point attempt ended up in an airball, and Maccabi were left with 23.5 seconds for their final attack.
