ABA Adriatic league 2013-14, Game 5 preview
Cedevita is still at the top of ABA Adriatic league as the only one undefeated team after four played games in regular season. Great start for Cedevita with perfect 4-0 record.
It will be interesting to see if Union Olimpija will reach its first win in ABA Adriatic league as they are still winless and definitely one of the biggest disappointments so far in ABA Adriatic league.
Game 5 in ABA Adriatic league start today at 17.00 CET in Zagreb, in Game of the week as Cibona will host Cedevita in Croatian derby. Cibona with 2-2 record at the moment will try to win over undefeated team, and it won’t be an easy task. Home court is not any advantage in this game since both teams are from Zagreb. We expect to see good game and enjoy in quality Basketball.
At 19.00 CET, Zadar will host Mega Vizura. Both teams with identical 1-3 record, in run for the second win in regular season. Zadar should use home court against young and unexperienced team of Mega Vizura. On the other side, Mega Vizura will try to use positive energy from last game when they grabbed its firt win.
Also at 19.00 CET, Radnicki will host Union Olimpija, and we expect good game. Radnicki with 2-2 record is favorite in this game, especially after they grabbed its first win in Eurocup competition just few days ago. Union Olimpija need first win, but I am not sure if this game against Radnicki is good moment for that.
At 21.00 CET. Krka will host Igokea in Novo Mesto, Slovenia. Both teams have identical record of 2-2, and maybe it is good chance for hosts to try to reach its third win. Igokea played well in Eurocup few days ago, but unfortunately had no luck against Hapoel Migdal Jerusalem.
At Sunday, October 27, at 17.00 CET, MZT Skopje will host Partizan NIS. It is expected to be another one interesting game in this round. MZT Skopje with 2-2 rcord will try to use home court to surprise Black and whites, even I am not sure if home will be enough to win. Partizan NIS have 3-1 record, and if you ask me, they are favorites in this game.
At 19.00 CET, Siroki Primorka will host Buducnost VOLI. With identical 2-2 record, both teams will try to reach its third win. Maybe, Siroki known as team who play great at home have small advantage in this game. Buducnost VOLI played well in Eurocup, and wins against TED Ankara few days ago. So, that may be additional energy for guests.
At Monday, October 28, at 20.30 CET, Crvena Zvezda Telekom will host Szolnoki Olaj in Pionir Sport hall in Belgrade. If you ask me, anything except win for Crvena Zvezda Telekom will be great surprise. Crvena Zvezda Telekom currently with 3-1 record and with great support of their fans is big favorite in this game. Szolnoki Olaj have 2-2 record, but I am not sure if they are capable for any kind of surprise in this game.
