ABA League Round 24, Sunday, 18 April 2021:
CEDEVITA OLIMPIJA – CRVENA ZVEZDA MTS
Where? Stožice Arena, Ljubljana
Story of the game: In just a couple of days, Cedevita Olimpija and Crvena zvezda mts will play another important game in the battle for the top positions in the ABA League standings at the end of the Regular Season.
Cedevita Olimpija will host Crvena zvezda mts in their Stožice Arena in the postponed game of the ABA League Round 24 only four days after the two have faced each other in the Aleksandar Nikolić Hall in Belgrade. And, taking into account how the first game of the two sides this season has unfolded, we expect this one to be no less exciting this time.
Let’s remember, Crvena zvezda mts have prevailed over Cedevita Olimpija at home in Belgrade after a comeback in the final half a minute, after the visiting side were up by 3 points with 25 seconds remaining, but then failed to score until the end of the game, while Zvezda turned it around.
How will it be this time? Crvena zvezda mts haven’t beaten Cedevita Olimpija in Ljubljana yet. Will this be their first time or will the tradition go on?
Match-up in focus: Once again it’s all about Jaka Blažič and Jordan Loyd, when it comes to the head to head battles.
Blažič is the top scorer of Cedevita Olimpija and the 2nd best scorer of the season, while Loyd is the top scorer of Crvena zvezda mts and the 8th best scorer of the 2020/21 ABA League regular season. Whoever wins this duel will help his team a lot in winning the upcoming game.
Head to head in the regional league: In total 1:2; In Ljubljana 1:0.
