Vrsac vs Crvena zvezda
Crvena zvezda will visit Vrsac in Game 2 of the Serbian quarterfinals playoffs.
CZ lead 1-0 after easily won game 1 at home. Back then it was huge 39 pts difference, 89:50. I think we'll see similar score also this time.
Simply, there is too big gap in quality here plus Vrsac didn't exactly show they are too motivated to compete in games when face the best Serbian teams.
During the group stage Vrsac has suffered two realy embarrassing defeats from Partizan. Just ten days ago Vrsac hosted here Partizan and lost with 59:108. Yes, it's not mistake, it was 49 pts difference loss. When they met Partizan in Belgrade, it was similar story, 108:66. So, two losses with almost 100 pts combined deficit. Obviously we can't talk here about serious competitive team.
Even FMP beat Vrsac once with 30 pts difference while here on the road scored 102 pts against them.
Clearly Vrsac can't compete with those sides who first part of the season spent in ABA league.
Of course, there is fact Crvena zvezda struggled a little bit after losing ABA playoffs finals from Budućnost. Thus, CZ lost twice in Serbian Super liga (Vršac and Mega), should lose also from Tamiš. But they have changed the head coach and seems like things slowly getting back on it's place.
Having this in mind and with already mentioned not too big competitive motivation from the host, I think we are going to see another 30 pts win for Crvena zvezda.
