Khimki vs Darussafaka (By: NikolaSrb93)
Khimki Moscow meets Darussafaka from Turkey in 14th round of Euroleague. Khimki has three wins so far in this season while Darussafaka has made only one win so far.
Khimki is on three games losing streak. They have won their first match since Alexey Shved has got injured, but then they have lost to Bayern and after that match Anthony Gill has picked up injury and two more loses came for Khimki versus CSKA and Maccabi, both by huge difference and they have even lost to Nizhny Novgorod at home in VTB league few days ago which should be big alert for this team. Without these two players Khimki looks much different, they are missing three point shooting from Shved and his inside penetration and without Gill their rebounding is very weak, so those are things that are against them in this part of season and which leads to their defeats. Darrusafaka on other side looks more like Eurocup level team this season, but they have managed to improve their form a bit lately and against Panathinaikos and Zalgiris they were close to winning those matches, but there was lack of leadership in crunch time of those matches. They should be dominating in rebounding in this match with Eric and second chance points should be their secret weapon here as well as outside shooting from Douglas, McCallum and Diebler who have big experience on this level. All in all, Khimki should not be such big favorites in this match with their injuries problems and Darussafaka could make surprising win including potential over time.
