Jordan Loyd scored 18 points and Corey Walden added 16 points against his former team as Crvena Zvezda beat Partizan Belgrade 86 – 85 on the road in the ABA League derby to remain undefeated in the championship.

While Red Star led for the majority of the game and through the entire second half, Partizan could’ve gotten the win in the last moments. After coming back from an 11-point deficit in the fourth period thanks to a 13 – 4 run, the hosts approached 85 – 86 with 30 seconds to play following a triple by Rade Zagorac that gave the match a thrilling finale.

Taylor Rochestie missed a 3-point shot and on the other end, Codi Miller-McIntyre took the game-winning attempt with a floater, only for his shot to go off target.

Miller-McIntyre finished with 15 points and five rebounds while Rashawn Thomas had a game-high 19 points plus six rebounds for Partizan.
