Story of the game: In the final game of Round 12, Cedevita Olimoija will host Mornar-Barsko zlato this Tuesday evening.

Cedevita Olimpija have been looking quite impressive over the past few weeks. The Dragons have won the previous 5 games in the 2022/23 AdmiralBet ABA League regular season, while on top of that they scored a huge road win against JL Bourg last week in the 7Days EuroCup. It is quite obvious that the Ljubljana side have significantly improved their form as soon as some important players recovered from injuries and this team now indeed looks like one of the main contenders for the top of AdmiralBet ABA League.

On the other side, Mornar-Barsko zlato are going through a tough stage as they lost 4 out of the last 5 games in the league. The boys from Bar have therefore dropped out of the Playoffs zone, but if they manage to stun Cedevita Olimpija on the road they will then tie with Igokea m:tel and Cibona who are currently holding the last two places in the Top 8.

Cedevita Olimpija and Mornar-Barsko zlato have so far faced each other 6 times in the regional league and the score is 3:3.

Match-up in focus: Yogi Ferrell (Cedevita Olimpija) vs. Daron Russell (Mornar-Barsko zlato).

These two point guards were simply amazing in December as they are currently among the top 3 players in this month when it comes to the average index rating.

On top of that, both Ferrell and Russell are among the top 10 scorers of the season as Ferrell is averaging 17.5 points per game and he is currently holding the 7th place, while Russell is averaging 28.8 points per game and he is the league’s top scorer at the moment.

Head-to-head score in the regional league: In total 3:3; In Ljubljana 1:2.
