Cedevita Olimpija Team News
Cedevita has lost almost all chances to be in the TOP16 of the Eurocup, maybe theoretically they still exist, but it is very difficult to do, especially against strange and unrealistic defeats against Joventut and Cluj.
Against Cluj and Jouventut, they had an advantage, but at one point they stopped playing defense and took unreasonable shots in the early attack, which both teams took advantage of and won. And we saw how good and powerful a team Cedevita is in Belgrade, where they seriously tormented Crvena zvezda. Zvezda inflicted only their second defeat, but Cedevita was in the game until the very end. They hit an incredible 19 3-pointers, shooting 54% from three, and were defeated in that game. Many analysts blame coach Jurica Golemac for those defeats, who is unable to distribute roles and tighten the defense.
Omić is a dominant jumper, and we are expecting a great duel between him and Kaba, but everything in Cedevita depends on Ferrell and Adams, who are capable of scoring 20+ points. If Cedevita manages to play defense, at least at the ABA level, they will win this match. But if Green, Reynolds, and the team get fired, they’re in trouble.
Buducnost Team News
The team from Podgorica is in rather a bad shape. Although they are on a two-game winning streak, they beat the worst Eurocup and Aba league teams, more specifically Slask and MZT, very hard and narrowly. Slask had the advantage at halftime in Moraca, but they did not have the strength to make a surprise. While they only broke MZT in the last attack, the truth is, they had the advantage the whole match. However, in the last round of the Eurocup, all that bad play paid off. Future was defeated in Greece by Promitheas Parthas, and very easily. The winner was never in doubt.
Vlada Jovanovic changed and got rid of the services of Phil Booth and Aaron White, and the team was strengthened by JJ O’Brien and Erick Green. Ever since Green arrived, the offensive production of Popovic and Drobnjak has dropped. The only pure creator in the Buducnost team is Bell-Haynes, who may be playing the best this season. Green took the ball in his hands and does not see his other teammates. Against Promitheas, he scored 16 points, but he needed 14 shots for that.
The centers do not contribute much and this is a big problem for Buducnost. True, Kaba dominates in the jump, but his attack is quite limited. The role of Kenan Kamenjas is undefined, while Marko Jagodic Kuridza got injured, which is certainly a big problem for Buducnost because Kuridza contributes to the rebound, and all those nobody’s balls end up in his hands.
