Unicaja vs Olympiacos by Clinch

Unicaja
VS
Olympiacos
Malaga is a hard place to play to any team and roster of Unicaja seems solid even though they lost already three times this season against Olympiacos. We already had this situation between other teams(Kuban-Maccabi) where Kuban fought for the fourth win. Unicaja will try to do the same and I expect them to start energetic game like they always do on home court while Olympiacos will probably test the ground before they warm up for real. This is also important game for both teams but it would definitely be weird if defending Champion wouldn't pass this stage and therefore I believe they can win against Unicaja for the fourth time, they are whole team again.

 

Unicaja usually starts the game very good, full power by them and in the second half their tempo goes down. The exact thing happened to them in the last ACB game against Joventut when it already looked like 20 points difference win. I was looking at Unicaja HT scores and in 70% of the games they are having the lead at HT. The exact thing happened in their last game and the same thing happened in the first Malaga game between this two teams when Unicaja had a 5 point lead at HT.

 

In the athletics tactics, Unicaja loses all their energy at the beginning of the race so they don't have enough for finish. Especially not against top team like Olympiacos which has no significant ups and downs in their game. In their last game since Spanoulis is back in the team they were consistent through out the game scoring 23-22-22-22 points by quarters. Similar thing they did in the first game in Malaga 20-21-21-20. I expect something similar again. Spanoulis not only makes points he does it mostly in situations where his teammates don't perform well. Also with Spanoulis in the team, Lojeski also performs much better. All in all I believe Malaga can give proper resistance, but again they are not on the same level and just like Barcelona passed through Malaga I believe that Champions will do the same.

 

Prediction: 73:78
