AdmiralBet ABA League Round 8, Friday, 12 November 2021:
FMP – SC DERBY
Where? FMP Arena, Belgrade
Story of the game: In the opening game of the AdmiralBet ABA League Round 8, FMP will be hosting SC Derby at home in Belgrade.
It will be a game of two teams with similar stories this season, but heading into the game after a different results last round.
Currently, both FMP and SC Derby are positioned in the upper half of the standings, with FMP having a 5:2 record after five rounds, winning 4 of their last five games and SC Derby having a 4:3 record, winning 3 of their last five games.
However, as FMP lost their last game, SC Derby have won and the question now is whether both teams would go on a streak, either winning or losing, or will FMP get back on the winning track, preventing SC Derby from winning. What is your call?
Match-up in focus: Two very efficient scorers from this season will battle one against another this time, as Bryce Jones will face Kyle Vinales in a head-to-head battle in the point guard position. Both of them are currently the top scorers of their squads, with Jones averaging 16.9 points per game this season in the AdmiralBet ABA League and Vinales 20.6.
Head to head in the regional league: 0:0.
