Krka – Partizan NIS 60-52
Krka wins over Partizan NIS in Game 3 and prepared one of surprises in this week. Excellent game for team of Aleksandar Dzikic, and as he stated they can play even better. Partizan NIS played bad game and deserved this defeat. Maybe this defeat is good for Partizan NIS, to wake-them up just few days before Turkish Airlines Euroleague start.
MZT Skopje – Buducnost VOLI 78-71
Another one good game, as hosts MZT SKopje topped Buducnost VOLI. Many expected that Buducnost VOLI will win in this game, but Todor Gecevski led his team and didn’t allow surprise on its home court. Todor Gecevski was named MVP of Game 3. With this win, MZT Skopje imporved to 2-1 record, and Buducnost VOLI dropped to 1-2 record.
Crvena Zvezda Telekom – Radnicki Kragujevac 88-51
Game expecte to be game of the week, actually it wasn’t. Crvena Zvezda Telekom destroyed Radnic as they played against some team form 4th division. Radnicki had no chances in this game at all. They had no idea in offence and played terrible defense against excellent Crvena Zvezda Telekom. For Crvena Zvezda Telekom, this win should be positive stimulation for Game 1 in Turkish Airlines Euroleague in just few days. Crvena Zvezda Telekom improved to 2-1 record, and Radnicki dropped to 2-1 record.
Siroki Primorka – Union Olimpija 60-58
Good game in Siroki Brijeg as Union Olimpija was hoping that they will reach its first win in this season in ABA Adriatic league. But, Siroki didn’t allow them. Siroki led most of the game but in last few minutes we saw real drama on the court. Finally, Siroki wins and improved to 2-1 record. Union Olimpija dropped to 0-3 record, once again confirmed their terrible start in this season.
Mega Vizura – Igokea 77-91
In game between two winless team, Igokea reached its first win in ABA Adriatic league as they outplayed Mega Vizura. Lack of experience is the biggest problem for young team of Mega Vizura in this season. After Igokea made some changes in its roster, its seems that better days will come for them. Mega Vizura will keep struggling to reach first win this season.
Cibona – Szolnoki Olaj 87-63
Cibona reached its second straight win and improved to 2-1 record. Szolnoki Olaj had no chances in this game as they dropped to 1-2 record. Cibona play better and better and we may expect good results in upcoming games. Szolnoki Olaj will probably stay in lower part of standings in ABA Adriatic league.
