Second matchday of this week, fortunately more balanced from the point of view of the calendar in the two days. Tip-off at 6 pm with the big match between Zenit and Real, while the Spanish derby between Barcelona and Baskonia will close the day on Friday at 9 pm. To report Efes-CSKA Thursday at 18.30.
Nando De Colo (Fenerbahce, X CR): after a period of difficult games, Vader is preparing to face a match at least on the most affordable card. ASVEL is in great shape it is true, but if the Vader played to his fullest he could take it home. De Colo is undoubtedly one of the leaders, and in a moment like this we will need his contribution. As a Frenchman against his compatriots, he will want to do well.
Wade Baldwin (Bayern Munich, X CR): As mentioned in the intro, Baldwin from former Olympiacos against Pana will have extra motivation to make a great match, besides the fact that he has to drag his Bayern to the postseason. Scratch-resistant solid.
Rokas Jokubaitis (Zalgiris Kaunas, X CR): The Rising Star award favorite of the competition closes the guard trio. Milaknis will be out for a month and he will mostly gain a lot of minutes. Against Milan it is a tough challenge, but he had already done well in the first leg. The classic alternative name.
Luke Sikma (Alba Berlin, X CR): Alba flies to Moscow, to visit Khimki. Everyone knows the ability of the russians to make their opponents perform important and I am sure that Sikma can do well. Points, rebounds, assists, a complete skillset suitable for a great score.
Nikola Kalinic (Valencia, X CR): the Serbian is dragging Valencia on a long ride towards the playoffs. Double-double against Zenit and Euroleague’s player of the month award in February. The match against Maccabi is difficult but he is in shape, Valencia also is in shape and I don’t see why he could be a bad choice.
Kyle Kuric (Barcelona, X CR): Jasikevicius’ sniper is experiencing a moment of prerogative, but I think he will soon be back to his standards. Against Baskonia he can do well and since Barcelona have to get back on track, you can count on him.
Jan Vesely (Fenerbahce, 16,4 CR) the Fener is in great shape, and the Czech pivot is playing incredible Basketball. In the last game he went to 2 assists from the triple double and against Asvel he can undoubtedly repeat himself. On fire.
Octavius Ellis (Olympiacos, 9,4 CR): a surprising name to complete the sector of the centers of this day. With the various absences in the department that have affected the Olympics, Ellis is playing a lot and putting on excellent performances also going very close to DD. He is not a highly regarded name, but a particularly intriguing one.
Pierre Oriola (Barcelona, 7,5 CR): the blaugrana’s pivot immediately became a praetorian of coach Jasikevicius. Against Baskonia a challenge that is not so easy, but at that price there is no better …
Igor Kokoskov (Fenerbahce, 6,4 CR): 11 victories in the last 12 and a ride that doesn’t seem to stop. A complicated match is expected against Asvel, but the Turks, if play as in the last ones, will win without problems.
Georgios Bartzokas (Olympiacos, 4 CR): Olympiacos is in a bad moment and injuries certainly don’t help. However, a good match comes to the rescue, as the match against the Red Star. Minimum price maximum result?
