ABA League Round 14, Saturday, 9 January 2021:


Where? Borac Sports Hall, Čačak

When? 17:00

Story of the game: Local rivals Borac and Partizan NIS will be opening the ABA League Round 14 with their clash in Čačak. An exciting encounter of the two squads is coming up, as both of them have plenty to fight for at the moment.

Not only is Partizan NIS currently on a 7/13 record at the half of the season, which is not the best possible standpoint in their battle to achieve a spot in the ABA League Playoffs and means that only a victory counts for them in the every single forthcoming game this season. They have also been defated by the Ćačak squad in its first ever ABA League appearance, in the opening round of the season, so their pride demands that they do not return home empty-handed this time.

On the other side, Borac are holding 3 wins out of 11 games played so far this season, so that means that they need to win desperately in order to escape the danger zone near the bottom of the ABA League standings, where only Zadar currently hold less victories than the Čačak squad (2).

Which team can win this time and accomplish their goal? Watch the game and find out!

Match-up in focus: It will be a delight to watch the clash of two excellent American point guards on the court fighting one-another. Bryce Jones meets Codi Miller-McIntyre! Both of the two are currently the top scorers and passers of their respective teams, with Jones averaging 12 points and 3.8 assists per game and Miller McIntyre 13.4 points and 3 assists per game. Which of the two will shine brighter this time?

Head to head in the regional league: in total 1:0; In Čačak 0:0.
