With nothing to lose Cibona approached game 2 of the heated semifinal series vs Cedevita with incredible energy and motivation to prove their current worth.
By closely following instructions of their coach Josip Vrankovic, who oftenly switched defenses and made the right adjustments, Cibona was able to reach an unbelievable 61:31 halftime advantage.
Second half was something different. With PG Dontaye Draper and SF Damjan Rudez both limited with 4 personals, Cedevita’s 3rd quarter comeback attempt was led by exposive SG Hrvoje Kovacevic who scored 22 points in 20 minutes only to help Cedevita win 2nd half by 46:57.
Cibona’s young unit (Vragovic-Bogdanovic- Zubcic-Radosevic) struggled in the start of 4th quarter but was able to put an stylish end to the one of the most convincing Cibona’s Ws of the season.
Cibona’s court leader G/F Bojan Boganovic was impressive with 29 points in 33 minutes of play, with many of those coming after strong drives to the left. His strong performance was supplemented by Zubcic’s 16pts+5reb, Rozic’s 19pts+5stl+4ast and Vrbanc’s 15pts+4reb.
Decisive game 3 of the series is scheduled for Wednesday (20.15 CET).
