It has become normal to expect that Partizan will crush the opposition in this league after everything they have done in previous seasons: top 8 and top 4 in Europe, a lot of Serbian and Adriatic leagues titles in a row.. Also, first time in years they have decent situation with budget.. everything looks fine for them. Also, results in Euroleague are fine, as they are in third place in their group, and they have strong chances to enter top 16 again. In Adriatic league, on the other side, they have problems as their focus is on Europe, and struggle to find consistency. After trashing Zvezda they were beaten by Radnicki, and now have five defeats from nine games.
They have changed Lafayete with Jerrels, and despite 13 points from Jerrels they played their worst game this season against Khymky. Team that allow their opponents between 62 and 73 points allowed Khymky 92 points and something that looked like easy win. It is understandable as few defenders were very spent in attack, and team was very weak in deffence. In Adriatic league they never play strong deff, so this shouldn't be a problem in this game. The important thing is that players weren't happy after their defeats in Adriatic league, and everyone can tell that they really wont to start winning in this league.
Igokea is perfect opponent, as there are some friendly relations between the clubs, and they don't have much quality. Also, they won game against Cibona in last round, and that is very important for them.
I am not crazy about this handicap, but I know that it's time for Partizan to start winning. They have more time to rest after tough game in Russia, and they will play against Macabi in Thursday.
