The Take

In one of two first-time encounters on Friday of Round 11, Baskonia Vitoria Gasteiz (6-4) welcomes Darussafaka Dogus Istanbul (5-5) to Fernando Buesa Arena. The hosts can solidify their fifth-place standing with a victory, while Darussafaka could fall out of the all-important top eight with a loss. Baskonia will be buoyed by the signing this week of a long-time favorite in Vitoria-Gasteiz, veteran point guard Pablo Prigioni, although it remains to be seen whether he plays and, if so, how much. In the meantime, Baskonia's new point man, Shane Larkin, is its leading scorer, with 13.5 points on average, quickly followed by two other newcomers this season, Andrea Bargnani (12.6 ppg.) and Johannes Voigtmann (12.3ppg.). Led by Voigtmann's 7.3-rebound average, the fifth-highest in the EuroLeague, Baskonia enjoys a (36.6 to 30.7) advantage in that statistic over Darussafaka, which ranks second-to-last among all teams. Larkin is also the league co-leader in steals (1.8 spg.), while Adam Hanga ranks seventh (1.4), so Darussafaka will want to protect the ball, too. The visitors rely for scoring on a pair of perimeter threats, Will Clyburn and Brad Wanamaker, who are putting up 14.0 points per game each, while James Anderson adds 11.7 points per game to the offense. Darussafaka's best rebounder, Adrien Moerman at 6.0 per game, will need help on the boards to overcome Baskonia's advantage. One advantage the visitors have is in three-point shooting accuracy (40.5 % to 34.4 %) as Dairis Bertans is making 54.2 % and Anderson 42.6 % of their tries from downtown. Baskonia would do well to forget Darussafaka's three-game losing streak and remember that the visitors won their first three road games this season. Just as Darussafaka will want to not let Baskonia's floor-runners lose on their home-court with such a great crowd ready to play sixth man.
