ABA league: 6th round recap, scores and stats

After 6 rounds in the ABA league, the “image is now clearer”. Crvena Zvezda remained undefeated after hosting Croatian champions – Cedevita.

The team from Belgrade was dominant, thanks to its high quality defense, while Cedevita needs to adapt to new roster and staff changes. The Croatian team hopes that the new signing (Jacob Pullen) will be game fit sooner rather than later.

Andrea Trinchieri’s new home is Belgrade. But, the Italian coach came to Crvena Zvezda’s neighbours, Partizan, to save the day (season). It started good as players reacted as coach preferred in his debut against Mega Bemax. Partizan broke Misko Raznatovic’s team winning streak.

Unexpectedly, Cibona is also having a solid start to the season. Two-time European champions outscored EuroCup’s side Mornar Bar, thanks to Mr. Key Shot’s clutch plays (Marko Ljubicic). Zadar surprisingly won on the road against Slovenian side Krka after a dramatic finish.

EuroLeague shows as too big challenge for Buducnost Voli at the moment, but they can still “make it right” against Petrol Olimpija.
