ABA Adriatic league 2013-14, Game 5 recap
After five played games in regular season in ABA Adriatic league, there are no more undefeated teams as Cibona topped Cedevita and stopped their winning streak.
At the bottom of standings nothing new as Union Olimpija is still without win and they continued its terrible losing streak and reach 0-5 record.
Sad news for Union Olimpija fans, and from this stand point I don’t see how they can get out of this trouble without significant changes in roster or even change of coach.
Cibona – Cedevita 66-51
Finally, after four wins in a row, Cibona wins over Cedevita in Croatian derby and stopped their winning streak. In good game, Cibona played better and deserved this win. Cibona improved to 3-2 record, until Cedevita dropped to 4-1. Marko Tomas got badly injured at this game, and it is big question when he will be back on the court for Cedevita.
Zadar – Mega Vizura 75-81
Despite lead in first three quarters, Zadar failed in great chance to beat Mega Vizura and improve its record. Mega Vizura played well and had enough patience and uses its chances in last quarter to grab another one win. With this win, Mega Vizura improved to 2-3 record, Zadar dropped to 1-4.
