Game recap: After suffering two defeats in the previous two rounds of the 2019/20 ABA League regular season, FMP have returned on the winning path by beating Zadar at home court. This match was completely one-sided, as the Panthers have been dominating the court from the first to the last minute. Still, it must be mentioned that Zadar played this game without the league’s 2nd best scorer Bryon Allen, which partially explains the big margin at the end.

FMP now have the overall score of 6-3, while Zadar are at 1-8.

Key moments: It was the 2nd quarter in which FMP gained the crucial lead. The home side scored 30 points in that period, leaving the visitors far behind at the halftime – 50:29.

Man of the match: Marko Pecarski! FMP’s hot prospect had (almost) a perfect game this evening. He was 2/2 for 2 points, 3/4 for 3 points and 2/2 from free throws. Pecarski finished the match with 15 points, which is his career-high in ABA League.

Can’t trick the stats: FMP had 28 assists, which is 13 more than Zadar had in this match. The home side played as a true team and scored a well-deserved win.
