The game of Russia against Bosnia ended with the guests getting the road win and the ticket to Eurobasket 2017 and also Mirza Teletovic at odds with the young start of the Bosnian team Dzanan Musa.

The 17 years old player of Cedevita is probably the best European prospect at this age, however with the game in the last minute he confronted Russian center Timofey Mozgov for his defense in the play during which Denver’s Jusuf Nurkic was hurt. As you can see in the replay however, Denver’s big man goes down hard, but not because of the moves of the newest Lakers‘ center.

In the next play, Sergey Karasev tries to hit Musa with his elbow, but the Bosnian player flops badly and his behavior enrages Bosnia’s captain Mirza Teletovic who had a thing or two to say to the youngster.

As you can see by Musa’ s reaction, Teletovic’s “criticism” was harsh, but at least the home crowd chanted his name, even if the game didn’t end the way they would like. See the full video of what happened in the last minute of the game.
