ABA Adriatic league 2012-13, Game 12 preview

aba adriatic league

Three days of new excitements and good games in ABA Adriatic league will start today. With Game 12, we are almost on the half way of ABA Adriatic league in this season.

Today, at 17.00 CET, Krka will host current leader, Igokea. Krka, currently at position 9 with score of 5 wins and 6 losses will have great challenge to try to upset guests.

On the other hand, Igokea, sole leader of ABA Adriatic league so far, with great score of 9 wins and only 2 losses, will try to continue its winning streak and use all positive energy from big win against Partizan mt:s in last week.

Also at 17.00 CET, Radnicki Kragujevac will host Split. It is expected to be good and interesting game, and good opportunity for Radnicki Kragujevac to reach another one win at front of their supporters.

Radnicki Kragujevac with score of 6 wins and 5 losses is favorite in this game, compared to score of 5 wins and 6 losses of their guests.

At 19.00 CET, Zadar will host Szolnoki Olaj. This game is derby of teams from the bottom of ABA Adriatic league standings. Zadar currently at position 13, and Szolnoki Olaj at the last position, 14.

Since Zadar is host, I believe that Zadar will win in this game. Szolnoki Olaj fired coach Peter Pot and we will see if this change will bring anything good to Hungarian team.

Also at 19.00 CET, it is expected to be one of the most interesting games in this week as Buducnost VOLI will host Crvena Zvezda Diva. Both teams doing pretty well in Eurocup competition as well.

Crvena Zvezda Diva have perfect score in Eurocup with 5-0 and qualified for the next phase. Buducnost VOLI with score of 3-2 still have good chances for the next round.

In ABA Adriatic league, Crvena Zvezda Diva currently at position 3 with score of 7 wins and 4 losses, and Buducnost VOLI at position 5, with score of 6 wins and 5 losses.

Tomorrow, Sunday, December 9, at 17.00 CET, Croatian derby as Cibona will host Cedevita. I also expect great game, and believe that Cedevita will win.

Cibona in pretty tough situation, currently at position 12 with bad score of 4 wins and 7 losses. Cedevita at position 4 with score of 7 wins and 4 losses.

Cedevita in Turkish Airlines Euroleague is at the last position in Group C with score 2-7, and Cibona at the last position in Group G in Eurocup with score of 0-5.

At 19.00 CET, Partizan mt:s will host MZT skopje. Partizan mt:s played one of the best games in Turkish Airlines Euroleague so far in this season just two days ago against mighty FC Barcelona Regal. Unfortunately, they lost in overtime.

It will be interesting to see, if Partizan mt:s saved some energy for this game against MZT Skopje. MZT Skopje currently at position 7 with 6-5 score, since Partizan mt:s is at position 2 with score 8-3.

Finally, at Monday, December 10, at 20.30 CET, Siroki Wwin will host Union Olimpija. Siroki Wwin currently at position 11 with score 4-7, and Union Olimpija at position 8 with score 5-6.

Union Olimpija last night in great game topped BC Khimki in Game 9 in Turkish Airlines Euroleague and improved to 3-6 score. If they use this positive energy, game against Siroki Wwin shouldn’t be an tough goal.
