Obradoiro vs Joventut
Hard to say whether this Obradoiro team is improving or not, but they are tough and physical team and that could give them the edge against Joventut today. It seems that Bernard Hopkins suffered some minor injury but he will play anyway for the home team. With or without him, this team has what it takes to match Joventut in the paint. Kendall,Junyent and Lasme are making an athletic frontline and Joventut without Baez could have a difficult time rebounding the ball and defending inside.Washington and Ere are guys that can make every defense pay and this pair of forwards are definitely able to make a difference against their older and not so mobile opponents in this matchup (Barton, Van Lacke).
Joventut is coming from a home loss vs Gran Canaria and the way they looked makes me think they are going to connect two losses after that great streak of 4 wins in a row. Their game depends too much on their PG Jeter who is looking at the basket more than he should. Furthermore, they are taking too many threes and they seem to struggle attacking that 2-3 zone that GC played so well for a good part of the game. I will go with a home team here.
