Cibona vs Crvena zvezda by Sharingham
Derby match, arch rivals Cibona and Red Star are playing tonight, both teams will give their best to win. Cibona lost first season match. They played at home vs Olimpija. They played pretty good game but they made to much mistakes in second quarter and they couldn't make up the difference and reverse the result, although they were close. Lalić 16 pts, Jagodić-Kuridžaa 15 and a Blassingame 14 were best in Cibona.
Red Star welcomed the season with great expectations. They are first favorite for title (by bookies) and they started with a convincing win against Levski by +30 pts. Bulgarian team provided strong resistance during first half but furious game of hosts in second period broke the game. Red Star drastically change the squad for this season newcomers are: silver medalist from World Championchip Kalinic and Jovic, NBA drafted youngster Dangubic, playmaker Williams from Lokomotiv and German Maik Cirbes. With players who remain from last season (Jenkins, Marjanovic, Blazic, Mitrovic etc), by names it looks like the stronger team than last year. They will also play Euroleague this season.
In last match between this two teams, Cibona won in final-four last season and qualified for Euroleague, but during bad finances they give up and Red Star qualified instead, as a winner of league part of ABA.
I expect tough game with a great fight until the finish, but I think Red Star to win by a small margin.
