ZDR vs BOR Dream11 Match: In a league which is dominated by the perennial superpowers such as Crvena Zvezda and Partizan, the margin for error for all other teams looking to break the curve is almost non-existent. But for both KK Zadar and KK Borac, even remaining relevant for the playoff scrimmage has been insurmountable like a task. Both are in bottom two heading into this match. But one team will come out of this battle with a when as both run into each other for this game at Kresimir Cosic Sports Hall on
Zadar are currently the team propping up the table, winning only twice in the first 8 rounds. Their opponent, Borac, meanwhile are above them having won just twice in the first nine rounds. But the table is slightly misleading, for a few teams sitting comparatively high on the table have played more games, with Primorska in particular, with 13 games and losing all, likely to slip down the table.
That said, there’s no denying that more was expected from both Zadar and Borac this season. The only positive for them is that it’s still early in the season and there are plenty of games to make up for the lost ground.

KK Zadar: Though Zadar dropped the last game, which came in the HT Premijer Liga, they clocked in the last ABA Liga match, 99-89 in overtime against KK FMP Belgrade. It was only their second win in the league this season. Certainly, they need more teeth in their offensive game to improve their record.
