Amedeo Della Valle scored a team-high 19 points, including five in the last 40 seconds, to lead Buducnost to a 75 – 71 win over Crvena Zvezda in Game 3 of the ABA League Finals. It was a “win-or-go-home” affair for Buducnost since they came into the game down 0-2.

With the score 70 – 69, Della Valle drained a 3-pointer and then added a pair of free throws after Jordan Loyd (19 points, seven assists) made it 73 – 71 from the line. Ognjen Dobric (17 points) missed in a 3-point attempt and the hosts got the victory.

Danilo Nikolic finished with 11 points and eight rebounds for Buducnost while Nikola Ivanovic had 11 points plus six assists. Landry Nnoko added 10 points plus 11 rebounds for Red Star.
