5 teams for the 3 spots left in the playoff perspective. Last double round of the season, the penultimate matchday and surprises are around the corner. First match between Baskonia and Efes at 7pm, Real-Olympiacos closes the day, with the Greeks who have already got the trick at Valencia.
Jordan Loyd (Crvena Zvezda, 11.3 CR): against Maccabi, who does not shine in defense, he can confirm the good score with Milan. The only problem is to see when and if the light turns on or off for him.
Wade Baldwin (Bayern Munich, 10.7 CR): Bayern is missing a win to hit the playoffs. Zalgiris greeted them despite a comeback win against Alba. Much will pass through his hands, so we rely on him.
Kevin Punter (AX Armani Exchange Milan, 9.8 CR): he is also in the running for the prize as the Most Improved Player of the tournament. Shooting is the specialty, but under Messina’s guidance, he is improving many sides of his game. To OAKA in search of yet another confirmation.
Johannes Voigtmann (CSKA Moscow, 11.8 CR): since Milutinov’s injury he has earned the most, both on the pitch and on Dunkest. In the Russian derby against Khimki he can repeat himself, in forwards department of CSKA where everyone can potentially do well, he is our choice.
Trey Thompkins (Real Madrid, 10.8 CR): Without Laso on the bench disqualified, he could also play more. One of the men on which Real must bet is certainly him, after the collapse of performances and results by the blancos.
Alex Poythress (Zenit St Petersburg, 8.7 CR): Against the dirty and physical defense of ASVEL, even more than Ponitka and Thomas, the man who could fight back is Poythress. He has not been doing well lately, as has his team, but against the French there is an opportunity for redemption.
Jan Vesely (Fenerbahçe Istanbul, 17.2 CR): we rely once again, despite the difficult game, on the Czech center. The efficiency since Guduric’s arrival has always remained at a high level. Barring surprises, he can continue to do well against Davies.
Jaylen Reynolds (Bayern Munich, 12.7 CR): speech similar to Baldwin’s. Trinchieri will rely on him to get to the victory he misses to hit the playoffs. Furthermore, Zalgiris is a team that has always suffered from physical centers like him.
Mike Tobey (Valencia Basket, 10.1 CR): one of the best in the Valencian positive moment. Disappeared from the field in the sports suicide against Olympiacos. Valencia to hope for the playoffs must go 2-0 and cannot fail again.
Xavi Pascual (Zenit St Petersburg, 4.9 CR): The only team to fight for the playoffs with 3 games to play. Arrived in the regular season finale in their worst shape to date. Against ASVEL the result is one: victory!
Andrea Trinchieri (Bayern Munich, 4.8 CR): the last match will be the away match in Barcelona, so against Zalgiris, to avoid surprises, Trinchieri will have to lead his team to win the match point they have.
