Asseco Prokom hopes to be a last-game qualifier in Group D when it faces BC Khimki Moscow Region in Gdynia, Poland on Wednesday night. Prokom is fifth in Group D, but can seal its ticket to the Top 16 for the third time in club history if it beats Khimki and Real Madrid downs Armani Jeans in Milano, Italy. Khimki will finish third in the group no matter what and may use a different rotation in this game. Khimki's main concern will be stopping Qyntel Woods and David Logan, two experienced scorers on the wings. Woods hopes to use his quick first step and all-around skills against Kelly McCarty, an experienced shooter with deep range and determination. Logan is set to test his unlimited range against a proven scorer in Keith Langford. Logan and Woods are set to see extended playing time on the court, and Mateusz Kostrzewski, Przemyslaw Zamojski and Lukasz Seweryn will comes off the bench to offer defense, intensity and the occasional three-pointer. Khimki counts on Vitaliy Fridzon to change the game rhythm with his court vision and shooting range and can use Sergey Toporov to improve its defense against Woods. Ronnie Burrell and recently signed center Ratko Varda will lead Prokom's frontcourt, with three-point threat Jan Jagla coming off the bench. Burrell hopes to use his footwork and strength against a good offensive rebounder in Paulius Jankunas. Varda and Adam Hrycaniuk are ready for a physical battle against two strong big men in Timofey Mozgov and Robertas Javtokas. The point guard battle will be interesting, as Daniel Ewing overcame his injury problems and is playing much better lately. Junior Harrington provides driving skills and intensity off the bench. Khimki relies on its Spanish point guard duo, Raul Lopez and Carlos Cabezas, to control the game rhythm. Cabezas is a better defender and thrives in clutch time, while Lopez offers court sense and creativity. Khimki needs to stop Woods and Logan and get its big men involved to get a prestigious road win and finish the regular season in style. Prokom must find one-on-one opportunities for its two superstars and control the defensive boards to get its run-and-gun game going. Expect a sellout crowd trying to take Prokom back to the Top 16 to create a loud atmosphere in this regular season finale.
