Laboral main opponent, which divide them form the final was Fenerbahce. The match between these two teams was very tie and unpredictable. Fenerbahce has made a spurt in the first quarter. However, Laboral was not ready to lose the game from the beginning and showed their advantage in the second quarter. It’s not a surprise that there were overtime. Both teams were worth for the final. Kutxa recent form was great not only in Euroleague but also in Spanish ABC. They are beating their opponents and have already won almost 72 % of the matches, which makes them 4th in the standings. What is more, they have one of the best Euroleague players. Ioannis Bourousis is the second best performer with respect to the performance index rating, 21.6, and he is also the best rebounder in the league, with an average of 8.9 rebounds per game.
Kuban has met CSKA at the Euroleague semi-finals. The match was very interesting. Even though the CSKA was winning most of the time, the hope to win for Kuban survived until the final seconds. This hope was mostuly affected not by the great form of Kuban, but mostly because of CSKA bad performance under the basket. Lokomotiv can boast the best defensive record in the Euroleague this season but they know that they need to have a massive performance to maintain this record against a team that knows how to score.
Laboral Kutxa overtime against Fenerbahce gives them mentally advantage. This is hardly predictable match and it wouldn‘t be a surprise if we see an overtime. Anyway Kutxa is a favorite for me and I think they are going to take that 3rd place.
