With great second half, Siroki topped Crvena Zvezda Diva

I am sure that all we who follow ABA Adriatic league in this season expected much much more from this game in ABA Adriatic league Game 25.

Siroki topped Crvena Zvezda Diva with 76:66 (17-13, 17-15, 22-14, 20-24). Easier than expected, players of coach Ivan Velic reached another one win in ABA Adriatic league.

This game was pretty important to both teams. Siroki with this win would come even closer to Final 4 of ABA Adriatic league, and Crvena Zvezda could have chances for Europe.

Both teams played with lack of energy, with many turnovers and without ideas in offense. With just little more focus, Siroki could easily have +15 after first 10 minutes and even more after 20 minutes.

Crvena Zvezda Diva had so much problems in offense. I was pretty confused about their strategy in this game. Without ideas, pretty soft, they allowed Siroki to play their game.

Coach Svetislav Pesic was pretty angry and nervous about his players performance in first half, and especially angry on some defense details (boxing out, help side, rotations).

As it was expected, much better game in second half, at least for Siroki. With better defense and better shot percentage they finished third quarter with +14, even I believe that it could be even more since Crvena Zvezda Diva played maybe the worst game in ABA Adriatic league in last few months.

Ivan Ramljak got his fourth personal foul too early, just at the beginning of the third quarter, but it wan’t that big problem for Siroki.

Nothing special in last quarter, Siroki better team in all segments. In some moments Crvena Zvezda Diva tried with some agressive defense but nothing. Siroki even had some attractive dunks. Fran Pilepic scored 3 pointer from about 10 meters with the buzzer.

In Siroki, Darko Planinic led his team with double-double score with 20 points and 12 rebounds. Zeljko Sakic added 15 points.

In Crvena Zvezda Diva, Omar Thomas scored 15 points, Mile Ilic and Andreja Milutinovic added 9 points each.

After all, Siroki deserved this win, or better say more than deserved. Crvena Zvezda Diva showed nothing in this game. I am pretty disappointed about their game and not quite sure what the hell is going on.

When you play without energy there must be some problems. We will see in following games if Crvena Zvezda Diva will fix all provlems they had in this game.

Congratulations to Siroki for another one win.
