ABA Adriatic league 2012-13, Game 2 preview

aba adriatic league

Game 2 of ABA Adriatic league will start today with two games, Zadar will host Crvena Zvezda Diva and Union Olimpija will host Split.

In first game, Zadar and Crvena Zvezda Diva will play at 18.00 CET and this game could be one of the most interesting games in Game 2.

Zadar had pretty good game against Partizan mt:s at Friday, but they lost because of incidents in Pionir Sport hall. Crvena Zvezda Diva will try to reach first win with its expensive roster after they were defeated by Split in Game 1.

In second game today, Union Olimpija and Split will play at 18.00 CET. Both teams won in Game 1, Union Olimpija as guest topped Radnicki in great game in Kragujevac.

Split prepared the biggest surprise in Game 1 as they wins over Crvena Zvezda Diva and proved that it is not all about money.

Tomorrow, October 3, five games. In first game, “Game of the week” as Cedevita will host Radnicki at 18.00 CET. Cedevita won in first game but hardly against very good team of Buducnost VOLI.

All we expect more from Cedevita as they are main favorite for ABA Adriatic league trophy this season. Radnicki unexpectedly lost from Union Olimpija at home, and will have tough game to try to reach first win.

Igokea will host Buducnost at 18.00 CET. Igokea won in Game 1 against Siroki and prepared another one surprise, even I don’t think it was suprise.

Buducnost had tough game against Cedevita and they played very well. Coach Dejan Radonjic have pretty good but young team and I am sure that we can expect great game.

Partizan mt:s will play against Krka at 18.00 CET. Both teams reached wins in Game 1, as Partizan mt:s topped Zadar in very strange game and game which will be remembered because incidents.

Coach Dusko Vujosevic is suspended for three games and Assistant Coach Velimir Gasic will lead Partizan mt:s in next three games. Krka wins against newcomers in ABA Adriatic league, Szolnoki Olaj.

Szolnoki Olaj and Cibona will meet each other at 18.00 CET. Szolnoki Olaj lost against Krka and it seems that they don’t have much quality for this competition even it is too early.

Cibona lost in Game 1 against newcomers MZT Skopje at home, and it seems that Cibona is not ready yet. Coach Veljko Mrsis is probably the weakest link in this team according to many people from Basketball.

In last game of Game 2, MZT Skopje will host Siroki in Skopje. After first win as they surprised Cibona in Zagreb, we can expect great atmosphere in Skopje.

MZT proved that even newcomers, many teams will have problems against them. Siroki lost at home in Game 1 against Igokea, but I believe that they don’t have much chances in this game against MZT.
