First loss for Maccabi Electra in ABA Adriatic league

zagreb vs maccabi electra

When nobody expected it just happened. Maccabi Electra lost their first game in ABA Adriatic league against KK Zagreb CO.

KK Zagreb CO hosted Maccabi Electra in Zagreb and prepared the biggest surprise in these 11 games beating Maccabi 81:74 (28:19, 11:19, 19:19, 23:17).

Since I had no chance to watch this game, I cannot write much about game, but here are some statistic details from this game.

Krunoslav Simon led KK Zagreb CO with great performance and scored 26 points, added 7 rebounds and 4 assists.

Mario Kasun and Damir Rancic added 12 points each for KK Zagreb CO. In Maccabi Electra, Davin Smith and Keith Langford scored 12 points each and Richard Hendrix added 10 points.

KK Zagreb CO had 32 rebounds in total, comparing to 25 of Maccabi Electra.

After pretty bad start in this season in ABA Adriatic league and as well in Turkish Airlines Euroleague, KK Zagreb CO improved in their game and especially after Vlado Androic took over team as a Head coach.

Even I expected that Maccabi Electra could finish this season in ABA Adriatic league as undefeated team, it won’t happen. This could be an additional motiv to all other teams to try to do their best and beat Maccabi Electra.

It seems after they lost Farmar due to end of NBA lockout, they have problems in their game.

ABA Adriatic league week 11, will finish tomorrow after Partizan mt:s will host Union Olimpija in Pionir Arena in Belgrade.
