Maccabi – Baskonia

Gal Mekel (Maccabi)Maccabi continue their free fall mode, but this time speed will be much faster. And I hope that will help teams to score 165+ points.
Baskonia travels with all players except T.Shengelia. Others are health and seems low moment of form is in the past. In last 3 away games (Euroleague and Spain) team scores 90+ points. And against Maccabi defense I expect them to score at least 85 tonight.

Maccabi has all key players for this game. Q.Miller should be back to the line-up and that should help Maccabi offense to produce points, because all players will be playing on their positions.

It would be interesting to see how Maccabi will looks against fast team like Baskonia. Last time when they played in Vittoria game pace was 161 attacks and if it will be repeated today we should get an easy over. Baskonia is a team, who can score up to 90 points against bad defensive teams and Maccabi offense should improve sooner or later. I don’t include that “improvement” into my calculations and still getting 165 line here. If that improvement will happen this game might go to 170+ points.
