After consecutive thrilling home wins, fast-rising Partizan Mozzart Bet Belgrade (6-6) will look to make it three in a row against EA7 Emporio Armani Milan (4-8) which is looking to bounce back from two straight losses.
Energy reserves to be tested as Partizan hosts Milan
Both teams had overtime games on Tuesday night, with Partizan overcoming Monaco while Milan lost at Bayern, so energy reserves will be tested and Milan’s extra travel miles could be a hindrance. The return of Kevin Punter from injury has given a fresh dimension to Partizan’s attack with 13 and 25 points, while recent signing Bruno Caboclo has strengthened the frontcourt and grabbed 4 offensive boards on Tuesday. Milan can always count on Shavon Shields, who netted 26 points in the loss at Bayern, but Ettore Messina needs more of his players to consistently deliver.
