FMP is one of the biggest surprises in the ABA league this season. Although many predicted that they would be in the bottom half of the table, they managed to secure a place in the playoffs. The most deserving man for success is head coach Nenad Stefanovic. His signature is very visible in the game of a club from Zeleznik. FMP does not have particularly high-quality individual players, but as a team, they look great. They play defense at a very high level, and everyone has their role in the offense. No one is jumping from his role. After 12 rounds, they were 10-2, but then they lost seven games in a row.
One reason for such a thing is the injury of Garrett Nevels who was the best player alongside Bryce Jones. It took Stefanovic some time to reassign roles and when he did that, FMP started to win again. In the last four rounds, they achieved four wins and thus confirmed their spot in the playoffs. They will finish ABA league regular season in fifth or sixth place, depending on the results in the last three games.

Buducnost had a lot of bad luck this season. Just before the start of the season, one of the key players, Danilo Nikolic had to undergo brain surgery and did not play for six months. On several occasions, the team did not practice for one or two weeks due to a large number of coronavirus cases, and injuries were constantly a problem for some players. In the last ABA league round, starting center Willie Reed tore his Achilles tendon and ended his season. All of the reasons above mentioned have caused poorer results in recent times. Still, Buducnost managed to finish fifth in their Eurocup group with a win in Turkey against Bursaspor. Idea is to keep the third position in ABA league, and currently, they have one more win and a better H2H against Cedevita Olimpija.
Justin Cobbs and Kendrick Perry are able to destroy any opponent when they are offensively in good mood, but the impression is that they are not compatible and that Buducnost does not work best in the offense when they are both on the court. This is something that head coach Aleksandar Dzikic will have to improve before the start of the playoffs.

FMP is currently fifth with 14 wins and 9 losses in ABA League. Buducnost is in third place at 16-6. FMP is 8-3 at home and Buducnost is 6-5 at road. These clubs met each other in first round of this season when it was 82:72 for Buducnost in Podgorica.
Garrett Nevels is the only player unable to play for FMP due to injury. Willie Reed will not play for Buducnost and Suad Sehovic is questionable.
FMP vs. Buducnost Prediction
Buducnost played a tough game against Bursaspor on Tuesday and they certainly spent a lot of energy. For them, it’s no special difference between the third and fourth position in the ABA league. Of course, that third position is a better option, but it does not do or die situation. FMP has achieved more than planned and can play without any pressure. They have quality and will surely do everything they can to surprise Buducnost in Zeleznik.
Pick: FMP +5.5HC
