The 2013 Eurobasket tournament got underway on Wednesday and Atlanta Hawks forward Pero Antic is part of the Macedonia squad that fell in their opener against Montenegro 81-80. Antic had somewhat of a quiet game finishing with eight points and a game-high six rebounds on 3-9 shooting. Antic went 2-6 from beyond-the-arc including a buzzer beater at the halftime horn.
Tyrese Rice scored 10 of his 16 points in the last 1:44 of the game including a go ahead free throw in the game's final moments to lead Montenegro. Macedonia's Bo McCalebb led all scorers with 23 points while Damjan Stojanovski added 19. Suad Sehovic also finished with 16 points for Montenegro. Macedonia will be back in action again on Thursday when they take on Lithuania.
Here are highlights from Wednesday's game including video footage of Antic's buzzer beater before halftime:
