Game recap: Partizan NIS have extended their winning run in the ABA League as they easily prevailed over Zadar in Belgrade in Round 17 of the 2019/20 regular season.

Man of the match: James McAdoo is slowly showing that he is going to be a big reinforcement for this Partizan NIS team. The American center scored 13 points tonight, while he also had 5 rebounds. His overall index rating was 20.
Can’t trick the stats: This was one of the worst shooting nights Zadar have ever had in the regional league. The visitors made 26 attempts for 3 points… They made just 1!
