ABA League Round 12, Saturday, 21.12.2019:
Where? Štark Arena, Belgrade
Story of the game: An interesting clash of two highly motivated teams is coming up in Belgrade’s Štark Arena, as Partizan NIS will be hosting Igokea.
Partizan NIS have demonstrated some excellent performances lately and are looking to jump to the first place and in order to do that, not only a defeat of Budućnost VOLI would be necessary, but also their victory. On the other side, Igokea desperately need a new victory in order to get back to the winning track and escape the danger zone at the bottom of the ABA League standings, where they are currently positioned together with Mega Bemax and Zadar.
While Partizan NIS have triumphed four times in the last five games and three times in a row, Igokea have celebrated only once in their last five games and lost their last clash. Will Partizan NIS extend their winning streak or will Igokea start winning again? Let’s watch the big game and find out!
Match-up in focus: We will be enjoying the battle of ABA Super Cup MVP Rashawn Thomas and former Partizan NIS big man Đorđe Gagić at the power forward position. While Thomas is currently the second best scorer of Partizan NIS with 10.8 points scored per game, Đorđe Gagić is averaging 12.2 for Igokea. Who will be more prolific this time around?
Head to head in the regional league: In total 12:6; In Belgrade 7:1.
