Maccabi vs Buducnost
Wilbekin looks nothing like that Eurocup MVP who used to tear apart his opponents and he is in a tough spot at the moment, coming from his worst EL performance of the season as he finished the game against Real with 2 points (0-3 FG, 2/2 FT) and 2 assists for 4 turnovers in a very low 18 minutes on the court!
He has a good chance to bounce back against one of the weakest teams of the league and some sort of reaction is expected from him today. Wilbekin will have a fairly easy matchup against Cole, who is not a great defender, and he can do some damage from the perimeter (averages 7+ 3P attempts per game) but his assists just seem a lot better at those circumstantial very low lines.
Buducnost's opponents average 20.5 assists per game which is by far the worst in the league! Maccabi will try to get a big, morale-boosting win today and they are scoring at will in their home games thus they should have no trouble scoring 80+ points today and Wilbekin as their primary ball-handler should get those 4 assists unless he is about to score 60 points.
