Partizan vs Cedevita by Sharingham
This is the last round of regular season in ABA league. Final four tournament will be played between April 25 and April 27.
Since Red Star won yesterday (away vs. Cibona), definitely are known semi-final games. 1st team Red Star is playing against 4th placed Cibona and 2nd placed Cedevita Zagreb is playing vs 3rd Partizan. Final four will be played in Kombank Arena (capacity 22.000) in Belgrade, so Red Star and Partizan will play in front of their home crowd. Big rivalry between Serbian and Croatian teams will be present.
But, most important thing is the fact that finalists will play in Euroleague 2014/2015. So, semi-final matches are "game of season" for all four teams. Even biggest rivals Red Star and Partizan have claimed that it would be very bad to meet each other in semifinals, since they both played Euroleague this season. And that is why is tonight's match is no more important, since yesterday's win of Red Star. In other situation, that would be a very tough game with hard defenses and low points. Tonight, there is no reason to play "on edge" or to calculate in any way.
Partizan is playing in front of their fans, Bertrans is back, Bogdanović is in good form whole season, Lauvergne too, whole team paced the form for this period. Bad news is that Tarence Kinsey left the club and there is no information about possible replacement. Long term Westerman and Milosavljevic are out.
Cedevita is second placed team with great form lately. They averagely score 74 point overal in ABA this season (70 away). Head coach Repesa is too experience not to allow unforeseen injuries by playing hard game.
To conclude, game without the importance of results, these teams will clash in semi final at the end of month in game of season, no reason for excessive tactics tactics, they will save that for next time.
My pick: Over points (139,9), prediction 81:73, GOOD LUCK!
