With 50 seconds to play in Game 3 of the finals between Partizan and Crvena Zvezda, chaos ensued following Kevin Punter’s three-pointer which gave the hosts a three-point edge.
However, after nearly a twenty-minute break, the game was concluded and Partizan was able to force Game 4 in the series with a 70-67 victory.
Punter scored 22 points, along with six assists and five rebounds to help Partizan reach this eventful victory and Aleksa Avramovic added 14 points.
After Punter’s big shot, fans began to throw objects on Crvena Zvezda‘s bench, and the referees immediately interrupted the game as both teams and the game officials headed to the lockers.

The series became even tenser, considering the fact that the ABA League made an announcement Monday about an officiating mistake against Partizan in the final seconds of Game 2.
Ognjen Dobric added 20 points and 4 rebounds and Dejan Davidovac posted 19 points for Zvezda.
Game 4 of the series will take place Friday, June 3 at the Aleksandar Nikolic Hall.
