Red Star has reached the key part of their season. In the last decade, the absolute only goal of the club is to win the ABA league. In that way, they play in the Euroleague from year to year and try to qualify for the quarterfinals, even though they managed to do it only once. This season, head coach Dejan Radonjic formed a team that is capable to play one of the best defenses in Europe, and with this style of play, they reached the first position in the regular season, which is why they have a home-court advantage through the entire ABA League playoffs. Nikola Kalinic was named ABA league MVP, while Branko Lazic is the best defensive player in the competition, but this Red Star team does not depend on individuals but on team quality. Players like Nate Wolters, Austin Hollins, Luka Mitrovic, Ognjen Dobric, Nikola Ivanovic, and Dejan Davidovac can score double-digit points and the opponents never know which player will be the best scorer on that night. In the semifinals against Cedevita Olimpija, Red Star had great support from the stands and that will certainly be the case in the final.

While Red Star dominated in the ABA league in the last decade, Partizan was constantly trying to return to the Euroleague during that period, but they never succeeded. There are rumors that they will get a wildcard for next season regardless of the result of the final series, but that is certainly not something they will rely on. ABA league champion will certainly play in the Euroleague next season and Partizan will focus on winning this competition for the first time since 2013. Zeljko Obradovic, the best European coach of all time, is sitting on the bench and that could be a big value and guarantee of success. Partizan has players like Kevin Punter and Zach LeDay who showed against Buducnost in the semifinals of the ABA League what they can do, but to win against Red Star they will have to be at a much higher level as a team. Punter or LeDay can win one game for their team with excellent performance, but to win the trophy the defense will have to be in the foreground.

Three times this season, these teams played against each other and Red Star leads 2-1. The red and whites won convincingly twice, and the victory in the Serbian Cup final was especially important for their confidence.
Both coaches have all players available for this game.
Red Star vs. Partizan Prediction
Looking at what was done throughout the season, Red Star showed much more than Partizan. Home court advantage will play a big role in this final and the opposing team will certainly not feel comfortable. Partizan under pressure did not play well this season, and the pressure will be huge from the stands in this ABA league final series.
Date and Time: 27.05.2022 20:00 CET
Pick: Red Star -4.5
