Unicaja Malaga vs Barcelona
Unicaja collected two losses in two games, the same amount they had before that in all other games. In Russia against slow pace Unics Kazan which rarely lets their opponents to score over 80 points they managed to score 84 points. They are very dangerous from 3pt what is their main tactic and they are good in the paint. At Joventut they probably realized Unicaja vulnerabilities pretty well and had over 20 layups and tons of Free throws. Barcelona does lay ups and close range shots and attack from the paint but they also waste lots of balls on 3pt, the example was in last game against Real Madrid. Barcelona is simply in bad shape lately and I believe they will have to wait for some of the easier opponents to gain confidence back again. Unicaja at home still has to lose to someone and I doubt it will be Barcelona in this kind of shape. Unicaja won against Valencia and Gran Canaria by 13 points at home and I rate them as similar teams to Barcelona. Barcelona would need to be really sharp offensively in this game to ruin this bet. I see 87:76 in this game. Still not with higher stake since Joventut proved that Unicaja is laim defensively.
