I don’t see any strong plays tonight and decided to share my thought about 4 games, which are going to be really interesting to watch. Maybe there will be something to choose from at in-play markets.
Most important game of the season – that’s how PAO players take this game. Can we trust them against Cedevita which covered the spread at home just 3 times this season?
Zalgiris is 4-1 for over in last 5 away games and there are signs, that this trend might be hot in upcoming weeks. Sarunas Jasikevicius trying to implement faster game style and players are happy with it and starting to feel confidence. Today Zalgiris will play against team, which like to play fast paced basketball and we can expect high paced and high scoring game.
Teams played two times in regular season. First game was a slow one (144 attacks, 161 possesions), but finished with 83:77 score. Second was a faster one (151 attacks) but with same amount of possessions (162) and teams showed huge offensive efficiency 100:88. What kind of game we can expect today?
Brose will try to do the same trick, what Fenerbahce did in Khimki. They will try to stop Khimki playing fast-paced basketball and with their style of playing they are absolutely capable to achieve this.
In their only game this season in Madrid Barcelona won 91:84, but catalans have scored 70% from 2-pts in that game and it’ll be hard to to repeat such performance second time in a row.
I liked the way how Laboral played last week in Khimki especially in defense, but they missed so many easy shots under Khimki defensive pressure… This often happens with Laboral this season and that’s why we played under last week. Tonight we go with Laboral, because they are almost in must-win situation here.
Decided not to focus on one game, but to give you my thoughts on several games I found interesting tonight.
Washington – Portland Both teams had their winning streaks end over the weekend, streaks that helped them come near a playoff spot and keep their playoff spot alive.
Despite I expect high-paced game I’ve decided to go with under here due the multiple reasons.
