Zalgiris vs Anadolu Efes by Clinch
Since Efes won in Zagreb and they realized they reached top 16 of the competition what was their main goal, probably their ambitions are even bigger, they started playing bad. They lost easy at home to Caja Laboral and they lost for the first time ever in the Turkish league to Kolejliler. They made a huge lead in the first quarter and from there on it was all going downwards. I don't think Efes will make something significant this year, they rely to much on their NBA stars Farmar and Vujacic. They are good shooters but they can't score each three pointer they shoot, especially they will not do it against Zalgiris which seems to have a formula for them. Efes center Semih Erden is nothing special, Lavrinovic and company should dominate under rim. Popovic considers him a good three point shooter and to see Efes starlike shooters is only motivation for him. Kaukenas is always ready to contribute, penetrate etc
Zalgiris will imo win this game at home, they seem as a better team from any point of view. At their home court in a normal night with same amount of points they score usually and the same defense chances to cover this spread are imo good.
