Koper Primorska and Cedevita Olimpija have advanced to the 2020 Slovenian National Cup Final. Koper Primorska defeated ABA 2 team Helios Suns in the semis, mostly thanks to amazing performance of Aleksandar Lazić who scored 23 points and had 14 rebounds. In the second semi-final pair, Cedevita Olimpija beat Krka in overtime after an incredible ending in which Edo Murić scored the game-winning 3-pointer at the buzzer.
