Prediction: Unics Kazan vs Partizan, Eurocup
- Title : Prediction: Unics Kazan vs Partizan, Eurocup
The most attractive match of the third round of the Eurocup. Last season, these two rivals were to play potential quarterfinals of this competition. Unfortunately, we all know how the season ended.
This year, destiny joined them in a similar gathering. At present, the two groups are nearly on a 1-1 winning record. Unics lost in the primary game away to Venezia 85:78, while they beat Bahcesehir 89:88 with a tough time, with a score in the most recent seconds of their best player Jamar Smith. While the assault serves them very well toward the start of this season, it is obvious that they have numerous issues in the protection stage, so their mentor Dimitris Priftis will have a great deal of work in that field.
In contrast to their adversary, the Partizan didn't change much in their staff throughout the break between the two seasons. Just combo watch Corey Walden is missing more significant players than others, reinforcing the program of their greatest adversary, Crvena Zvezda. Large changes occurred in the lead trainer's place, where after the flight of Italian mentor Andrea Trinchieri, his job was taken over by collaborator Vlado Scepanovic, who is a learner in his business.
We will see how this season goes for them. Partizan suffered a painful defeat by Buducnost in the Adriatic League over the weekend after 3 overtimes. This can have a very negative effect on the team.
Unics: I. Canaan, J. Smith, J. Holland, P. Antipov, J. Brown
Partizan: O. Jaramaz, M. McIntyre, R. Zagorac, R. Thomas, W. Mosley
As I would see it, Unics is a slight top pick in this match, basically due to the home court, and it is trying to foresee the victor. What I believe is smarter to wager on OVER point in the match. The two groups have been playing viably since the beginning of the period with an accentuation on assault. They like to play with a ton of running and progress, so I think there will be numerous focuses in this match.
My prediction: Over 162,5 points
