Baskonia vs Barcelona
After 86:61 in the opening game of this Playoffs semifinals, probably there isn't too strong reason to go with Barcelona in the Game 2. But I belive in the visiting team this time.
Two days ago my pick here was on Baskonia and it turned out to be easy winner. As I said back then, Barcelona was a little bit tired playing on short rest after QF series with Andorra. Plus they were without Ribas and Oriola.
On the other side Baskonia had long five days to prepare for opening match of the semifinals.
But today both teams are on the same from that fatigue angle.
I definitely expect much better game for Barcelona.
We are yet to see if such better game will be enough for road win against this tough opponent. Or whether it will be enough to they at least cover the handicap.
But IMO one much stronger game opening should be enough to Barsa stay close at least in the early stage of this Game 2.
