Partizan NIS Belgrade grabbed a 98-77 victory over Cibona at home in their Round 17 makeup game to close the ABA League regular season victoriously with a 22-4 record. Zeljko Obradovic‘s squad could clinch the top spot in the standings if second-placed Crvena Zvezda (21-2) loses all three of its remaining games.
Yam Madar led five more Partizan scorers in double-figures with a game-high of 17 points, Matthias Lessort added 16 points, five rebounds, and five assists and Zach LeDay posted 14 points and five boards.
Partizan got ahead with an 11-point lead in the first quarter and never trailed to end the regular season with a comfortable win at home. Adding up to the team’s efforts, Balsa Koprovica and Aleksa Avramovic both had 13 points and Uros Trifunovic picked up 11 points.
Amar Gagic led Cibona with 14 points and five assists, Danko Brankovic and Toni Nakic dropped 12 points apiece and Jose Vildoza followed with 11 points.
The Belgrade side next faces Frutti Extra Bursaspor on Wednesday (April 20, 20:30 CET) for their 7DAYS EuroCup eighthfinal matchup at home.
