Crvena Zvezda has one of the biggest budgets in the Adriatic league, but after two gamedays the Belgrade club still search for its first win. That’s why the front office decided to take drastic measures and replaced coach Milivoje Lazic with Vlada Vukocic (photo). It’s a quick decision, but not something very unusual in European basketball. Zadar on Tuesday beat Crvena Zvezda 98-81.

Partizan, without sanctioned coach Dusko Vujosevic, beat Krka 79-60 and is one of the five unbeaten teams of the league together with Cedevita, Union Olimpija, Igokea, MZT Skopje. The rest of the second gameday‘s results are: Olimpija – Split 82-73, Cedevita – Radnicki 86-68, Igokea – Buducnost 70-61, Szolnoki – Cibona 75-71, Skopje – Siroki 63-59.
