ABA League Round 17, Monday, 28.1.2019:

MORNAR - Cibona 91:78 (24:19, 26:19, 21:18, 20:22)




Game recap: Sports Center Topolica is still a fortress! Mornar have defended their home court for the 4th time in a row in the 2018/19 ABA League regular season, while this time it was Cibona who have fallen in front of the Bar's troops. And, Mornar also managed to beat Cibona by more than 11 points and to therefore gain a better head to head score, which is always important in this league. Especially if we know that these two teams are currently all tied on the standings.

Key moments: Mornar had a double-digit lead at the halftime, however Cibona opened the 2nd half with a 9:0 run and reduced the gap to just 3 points - 50:47. But, the home team reacted quickly and regained the control over the game. Bit by bit, Mornar started rebuilding their lead, while after the 3-pointer made by Antabia Waller in the last seconds of the 3rd quarter the score was - 71:56. At that point it was clear that Mornar would take the win.

Man of the match: Nemanja Vranješ was once again brilliant and he might actually seize the MVP of the round award! Mornar's shooting guard finished this match with 23 points, while his overall index rating was 29.

Can't trick the stats: Rebounds! Mornar had 14 more rebounds than Cibona. That just shows you how much the home team wanted to win this game.
