ABA Adriatic league Game 21 preview

aba adriatic league

Believe or not, this weekend we will have Game 21, even most of the teams played only 18 games, Cedevita Zagreb and Crvena Zvezda Beograd only 17.

Ohh well, people from ABA Adriatic league changes schedule due to Maccabi and their Turkish Airlines Euroleague games, but couldn’t you guys just change numbers of scheduled weeks?

However, Game 21, will start tonight with game between Helios and Zagreb. This should be interesting game, two teams struggling for different goals. Helios to runaway from the bottom of ABA Adriatic league standing, and Zagreb who will try to reach Eurocup qualifications for next season.

Tomorrow, Saturday, February 4, Cibona will host Buducnost Voli in Zagreb. Very interesting game since for both teams this game is important. Buducnost Voli with this win will be almost 100% sure for Final 4, and Cibona Zagreb with this win will come step closer even to Final 4.

Partizan mt:s will host Zlatorog and Black and Whites hopes for another win. In this game shouldn’t be any surprises and I really believe that Partizan mt:s will win. Situation about Dominic James is still unclear, but everybody in Partizan mt:s headquarter hope so that FIBA will bring positive decision about this case, so Dominic James could join Black and Whites.

Another one interesting game, when Olimpija will host leader of competition, Maccabi Electra in Ljubljana. Maccabi Electra with only one loss is favorite in this game, but Olimpija is highly stimulated to try to win and be in situation to fight for Final 4.

Krka and Cedevita will play in Novo Mesto and I believe that Cedevita will win, since they have much better team, and it is also important game for them, to stay at the second place.

“Game of the week” is clash in Kragujevac between Radnicki and Crvena Zvezda Beograd. Radnicki after I must say unexpected loss in last game against Siroki, will use all potentials and win Crvena Zvezda and still keep chances for Eurocup qualifications. On the other hand, Crvena Zvezda will not surrender, so I am sure that we will enjoy in great game.

The only one game at Sunday, February 5, Siroki will host Hemofarm in Siroki Brijeg. Siroki Brijeg expects another one win especially after last game when they beat Radnicki in Kragujevac and topped postion 6 and came pretty close even to Final 4. Hemofarm with new coach, Nebojsa Bogavac, ex player of Hemofarm will try to save this season, but I am not sure if they can surprise Siroki this time.
