Serbia defeated Montenegro 82-73 in a game played without spectators.

It was the first test for the Serbs with Nikola Jokic scoring 16 points, Vasilije Micic adding 13, and Nikola Milutinov 12 points. Nemanja Bjelica played but did not score.

Marco Simonovic and Bojan Dubljevic scored 17 points for the losing side.

As expected former captain Milos Teodosic wasn’t with the team, and there’s not an official announcement yet about his cut.

However, Teodosic has already said goodbye to his teammates, confirming his absence from the upcoming Eurobasket.

The match in Stark Arena began with a minute of silence for the victims of the Cetinje shooting on August 12. A man has gone on a shooting rampage in the streets of the city in western Montenegro, killing 10 people, including two children, before being shot dead by a passerby.

The Serbian national team will play its first open to the public game on Wednesday, August 17, against the Slovenian national team in Ljubljana.
