Red Star was completely embarrassed in game number four of the ABA League finals. They allowed Partizan to score 112 points, which is unprecedented in head coach Dejan Radonjic era. His teams are known for a very strong defense, and that was seen this season in the Euroleague where Red Star was one of the best defensive teams in the competition. However, none of that was seen in game number four. After taking the 22:14 lead, they allowed Partizan to make a 35-7 run and after that, there was no comeback. Austin Hollins and Ognjen Dobric had a good offensive game, but that is completely irrelevant in the context of the match itself. It seemed that Red Star completely controls this series after the first two games, but now everything looks different. For years now, the only goal of this club has been to win the ABA League and participate in the Euroleague, and now that is in danger. It all comes down to the fifth and decisive game. Red Star will certainly have big support from the stands, and that is something that has always been their advantage.

In this series, Partizan rose like a Phoenix from the ashes. They were eight points behind at the beginning of the fourth quarter in game number three in the ABA League finals, but they managed to make a comeback and win, and then completely destroy the Red Star in game number four to tie the series at 2-2. The team that wins the fifth game will win the ABA league and secure a place in the Euroleague next season. There were many who doubted Zeljko Obradovic because Partizan did not play well this season. In the Eurocup, they were shockingly eliminated by Bursaspor in the round of 16, and in the Serbian Cup final game, they were humiliated by Red Star. However, if they win the ABA league, all that will be forgotten, and this will be the most successful season for this club since 2013. Partizan created the biggest advantage in the fourth game when Yam Madar, Aleksa Avramovic, Kevin Punter, Zach LeDay and Mathias Lessort were on the floor together and it is to be expected that the mentioned five players will get the most minutes in the decisive game.

Seven times these clubs have played against each other this season and the overall H2H is 4-3 for Red Star. However, all that is completely irrelevant. This game is the only thing that matters because the winner will raise ABA League trophy and get a spot in the Euroleague next season. In the ABA league, Red Star has 11 consecutive wins against Partizan at home. Last time, Partizan defeated Red Star as a visitor in ABA League back in 2015.
Both coaches will have all players available in this game.
Partizan vs. Red Star Prediction
The home court was defended all four times in this series, but now it will be harder than every previous time. After Partizan won last two games, there is now huge pressure on Red Star, and on the visitors bench is Zeljko Obradovic, the best European coach in the history of basketball. That is a huge advantage in games like this.
