The Virtus Bologna flies to the playoff final of the Serie A basketball. In race-3, dragged by the 29 points of Teodosic, Djordjevic’s team wins 78-75 at home against Brindisi, closing the series. The guests go to the long interval at 40-37, with the Emilians who somehow make up for the -4 (13-17) with which they had closed the first quarter. Bologna, pushed by Weems, then moves to 55-53, before Belinelli does not put the word ‘end’.


Practice closed for Virtus Bologna, which is also repeated in game-3 against Brindisi and gives itself the playoff final of Serie A. Happy Casa starts well and flies to 2-7. The Emilians react with Teodosic: a triple and a three-point game. The match that remains in balance until a minute from the end of the first quarter, when Brindisi stretches with Thompson’s triple (13-17). The partial for the guests continues at the beginning of the second period: Bell and Thompson bring the score to 13-22. Theodosic is still unblocking Virtus Bologna; then it is Gamble who shortens, while the number 44 of the V-Blacks brings his team back to -4. Brindisi escapes with the triples of Perkins and Thompson which are worth the new +7. Markovic puts the score back in full possession when he enters the last 2 minutes of the first half; Thompson hits from beyond the arc, then Teodosic shortens the free throw and goes to the long interval at 37-40. Only in the last minutes of the third period the two teams manage to seriously move the scoreboard: we go to the last stop with Virtus Bologna coming forward 55-53. Balance that does not break in the last 10 minutes. A run of 8-0 brings back Happy Casaavanti. From the line, Teodosic gives Segafredo +2 with 150 seconds left. The hosts controlled the match, but Harrison shortened Harrison to -4 from the line. The foul suffered by Teodosic (who goes to the line) is worth the new +6 for Bologna with 40 seconds left. The last seconds only fix the result at 78-75, which sends Virtus to the final.
