Mornar vs Cedevita
Both teams are coming from their Euro Cup games and both lost by few points. Cedevita could have easily scored 85+ points if they didn't waste the whole first QT where they scored only 8 points. In second half they scored over 50 points and they ended on 76 points. Cedevita is a team to score 95-105 points a game but their performance had to do something also with Russian team that can slow down a game sometimes. In Adriatic league Cedevita scores a lot and they take this competition seriously since only 4 teams go into play offs and fight for European places and the battle for those spots is competitive between 5 teams since Mega Bemax jumped in so they need to win against Mornar. Mornar changed their game approach in last three games to a slower pace but still there are points coming in from both sides. If they were just slightly better against Frankfurt they would win....they had 18-36 free throws in that game. It is a huge number so it means they run a lot still if opponent was making so many fouls on them. In their game against FMP there were 35 2pt shots from both sides, 25 3pt shots and around 18 FT from both sides while Cedevita had much more oportunity in Russia. In this game Cedevita will not play hard defense as this is not what they do but they will go to outscore the opponent and they have the power to do it through their Americans, but also local players will contribute much more than against Lokomotiv Kuban where all was subordinated to Americans Cobbs and Pullen. As I said Cedevita optimum is 95 points a game at least... for example against Alba Berlin which is better than Mornar they went all the way up to 109 points. Since Mornar defense is also sad I believe Cedevita will pick up from the second half against Lokomotiv and just continue here scoring 20+ points a QT and eventually go over 90 points. In this game I see 92:99.
