ABA League Round 14, Saturday, 4.1.2020:
Where? Štark Arena, Belgrade
Story of the game: In a big game, which is coming up on Saturday night in Belgrade, Partizan NIS will be hosting Mornar in their home Štark Arena and will be looking to extend their winning streak, which now spans for no less than five games in a row. In case they had achieved the victory, one thing is clear – the black and white would stay atop of the ABA League standings.
On the other side, Mornar also only have one single thing on their mind – beat Partizan NIS and stay in the Playoffs race, as a new defeat would push them already far behind the competition in the mission of achieving the top four. Their shape is not as brilliant as Partizan’s, as they have lost their last game and won three in their last five. However, such big games are always unpredictable.
