Bamberg vs Zalgiris by Robert
Injuries - Zalgiris is without Pocius, Brose Baskets is without long-term Sh.Ford.
Signings - Elias Harris will be available for Brose. Kaspars Vencvagars made a debut last week in Euroelague for Zalgiris. He had 10 pts in 17 minutes.
This is the crucial game for both teams. The situation is simple - Bamber needs a win in order to qualify. ANy other scenario would mean finished season in Euroleague. The situation for Zalgiris is easier: Zalgiris will qualify and finish third if it wins and Anadolu Efes Istanbul loses. It will qualify and finish fourth if it wins and Efes wins; or if it loses by up to 10 points and Efes wins; or if it loses and Efes loses. Zalgiris will be eliminated and place fifth if it loses by 11 points or more and Efes wins.
SO today we will see nothing but battle. The favourite of the game is Bamber because they need a win more. Anyway, both teams are pretty much even. Of course, Zalgiris can lose up to 10 points so thei actually will start a game with 10 point lead against Bamberg. Despite that, Kaunas will fight.
Kay players: Bamber will definately must use D'or Fischer and Zach Wright. Those two are definately best players in this team. After signing Harris their front line looks much better, quicker and athletic than Zalgiris. Anyway, Zalgiris will definately rely on Dentmond. Sadly, Pocius is injured so young guys Lipkevicius and Vencvagars must be ready to step up.
Today I select Zalgiris +6. I see them winning this game but odds are so good for handicap.
