Maccabi vs Barcelona (By: Khum)
Maccabi Tel Aviv - Barcelona
Here we have two of the hottest teams in Euroleague. Actually, Barcelona is THE hottest team in the league, with a 5 games winning streak.
After 4 consecutive losses in December they came back to their senses and here they are on the 6th spot in the ranking, trying to keep the pace with Olympiacos of the 5th spot.
The change came on offense, as when they were losing they were defending at elite level as well.
The real change came due to some of their main players switching from injury struiggles to excellently playing and due to good contribution from the bench.
Maccabi is on a roll as well, as they are coming of a big win in moscow over CSKA.
Barcelona is the 3rd best defensive team in Euroleague, yet today I doubt they will slow down the hot Maccabi offense, so in order to take their chances they should keep up in scoring. And they are scoring pretty good lately.
After scoring 77, 80, 97, 90 and 79 during their 5 games winning streak, I donțt see them staying under 77 today.
Keep in mind that Maccabi Knows Barcelona's defensive power and I find it hard to believe that the Israeli team will have as strategy beating Barca at their own strength. So if they will chose an offensive aproach and they will score at the pace they do it lately, Barcelona will score as well.
Look for an over the total in the game and on Barcelona's line as well.
Let's go green!
