ABA League Round 12, Friday, 25 December 2020:
BUDUĆNOST VOLI - Krka 70:62 (24:15, 11:9, 20:21, 15:17)
Game recap: Budućnost VOLI are back on winning track. After they have suffered their first and only defeat of the season so far last round, they have beaten Krka in Round 12 at home in Morača Sports Hall. This win keeps Budućnost VOLI amongst the most successful teams this season, as they still have only one defeat this season, just like Cedevita Olimpija and Crvena zvezda mts. On the other side, Krka are now on a 5:7 record after 12 games played and their 4 games long winning streak is over. However, they are still firmly placed in the middle of the standings, safely away from the danger zone near the bottom, which is also one of their goals for this season.
Key moments: Midway through the second quarter Krka cut their deficit to only 5 points (24:19), but then Budućnost VOLI stopped their offensive performance and went on an 8:0 run over the next five minutes. This put them up in double digits (32:19) and as it turned out later in the game, Krka did not manage to fight back and turn the game completely upside-down, even though they did come close in the final minutes.
Man of the match: Melvin Ejim has been the driving force for Budućnost VOLI throughout the game as he led the blue and white towards the win with 10 points, 9 rebounds, 2 assists, just as many steals and a game-high valuation of 20. He is our man of the match.
Can’t trick the stats: Budućnost VOLI have outrebounded Krka 30:13 and that’s what turned the flow of the game their way.
