The Belgrade Derby In Basketball Was Abandoned Last Night

Arch rivals Partizan and Red Star played each other in the Serbian Cup final last night. As with the football version of the Belgrade Derby, the atmosphere was electric.  Things spilled over in the third quarter, with the game tied at 43 each, when some fans got on to the court.

The game was abandoned and will be played today behind closed doors.  Remember this when watching the NBA on US Tv and they talk about the Lakers and Celtics being 'fierce' rivals.
