Baskonia Vitoria – Real Madrid (Thursday 19:00)
This poster is 100% Spanish shock The 16th day of the Euroleague Two teams at the top of the tournament table (10 wins and 5 losses), Baskonia VitoriaWho will get the vice-champion of Europe, the real Madrid.
If it’s no surprise that Real Madrid’s co-chairman of the Euroleague is found in 15 days because Madrid’s workforce is bloated, see: Baskonia Vitoria but the real surprise. The Basque team is not the most effective team, there is no real star in the team, but there is a coach. To Joan Penarro, managed to create a group that works at full speed. With 5 straight wins (including 2 Turkish steals over Anatolia and Fenerbahçe), Vitoria is currently treading water. Overdrive? The future will tell, but in the meantime, the game offered by the Basques is pleasant. Focused a lot on 3-point shooting (About 29 long-range attempts per game, number one in that category), Baskonia he’s not afraid to set the pace and take every opportunity to shoot from distance. Their American Marcus Howard is a perfect example. The US leader, who makes 3 three-pointers in every game, is one of the discoveries of the Euroleague 2022/2023 season. For his first experience in Europe, the Baskonia Vitoria player is averaging 14 points and is the team’s offensive leader. is well supported by Pierre Henry brings him physicality and strength (10.4 points and 6.6 rebounds) and Matt Costello (10 points and 5 rebounds), we get the mix of experience that has ensured the success of the Basques so far!
In front of, real Madrid He comes to the Basque country with the desire not to repeat the mistakes made League ACB last October (an 88-82 loss at Vitoria). But today’s Merengues are no longer the same as they were at the beginning of the season. Tight to close the rebound (pmore than 34 catches per game, number one in the EuroLeague) and overall in all defensive sectors, Real have more offensive quality compared to previous seasons. And 2 players recruited in recent months have a lot to do with it, Dzanan Musa (see below) and Gabriel Deck. The Argentine, who returned to the Spanish capital at the end of last season, is a real taulier who managed to clean the statistics sheet in many compartments without making the slightest noise. With 12.7 points and 6.2 rebounds per game, the winger can also penetrate to take advantage of screens. Walter Tavarez or a long range sanction if the opposing defense doesn’t tighten it up too much. Whether Mario Hezonja, Gershon Yabusele or the Cape Verdean pivot is more focused, while Real Madrid’s success is on the other side Gabriel Deck efficient. Despite the setback in Lithuania 10 days ago, a solid run in the Euroleague (5 wins in 7 games) real Madrid They will be looking to mark their territory in Vitoria this Thursday!
Player to watch: Dzanan Musa (Real Madrid)
Looking forward to after the last season Breogan who saw his title explode in the eyes of the people League ACB MVPfollowed by euro basket Dzana Musa, living up to the expectations placed on him, does not disappoint this season! With 15.7 points, 3.1 rebounds and 2.9 assists in the Euroleague, the Bosnian Merengu became the number one offensive weapon. Able to single-handedly handle Real Madrid’s attack, Dzanan Musa is a legitimate candidate for MVP of the season.
