CSKA Moscow vs Barcelona

Tough game in the opener for Barcelona as tactically they don't match well with CSKA and things get worse they travel to Russia where they have lost in their last 5 visits and never managed to trouble them. One thing that needs to be highlighted is that during those last 5 visits, the only players that shined for Barca and carried the team were efficient 3p shooters (Navarro, Abrines, Claver, and Koponen) mainly because CSKA is doing a great job inside the paint/ protecting the rim, which is Barca's main strength.

It's quite certain that Barca will need to take and make those long shots in order to actually stay in the game and it comes down to Kuric who is the most capable player in Barca's roster at the moment from beyond the arc. Kuric is also a vital member of Barca's lineup this season as they don't have good cover in SG position thus he has played more minutes than any other player, averaging a bit more than 27 minutes in those first 4 games of the season.

Who is Kuric? A cold-blooded sharpshooter, 2nd in 3P FG in Eurocup with Gran Canarias (14-15), 2nd in 3P FG in Eurocup with Gran C (16-17), 3rd in 3P FG in Eurocup with Zenit (17-18) and 8th top scorer in Eurocup in the last 2 seasons with 15.1 and 15.3 points per game. Various MVP's with Canarias and top10 in scoring and 3P making in ACB.

Kuric knows CSKA well from his short-term in Zenit last seasons where he faced them 3 times and scored 13+ points in each of those games.

Kuric is carrying Barca but that's not the point here.
I can understand it if you don't like me but if you have no clue or you are not certain about something, it's better to avoid downvoting and that goes every tip, not just mine! Because personally, I take downvotes into consideration just like everybody else.
