The Take

Gran Canaria registered two heavy losses on the road but managed to win its only home game until now, 87-86, against FC Barcelona Lassa. Chris Evans led the way against Barcelona with 19 points and 5 assists. Clevin Hannah added 14. CSKA is undefeated after rallying to defeat Darussafaka Tekfen Istanbul 79-75 in Round 3. Cory Higgins rescued CSKA with 14 points off the bench. Nikita Kurbanov added 13 and 8 rebounds. It is CSKA's first trip to the Canary Islands.

Marquee matchup:

Born in nearby Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Sergio Rodriguez has never played a EuroLeague game so close to his hometown. Expect that he'll want to make it a game to remember, showcasing his court vision, high basketball IQ and leadership. However, he will not have it easy against veteran Albert Oliver, a player who has guarded him for years and knows everything about him.

Did you know?

Alexander Gomelskiy, the late CSKA coaching legend, worked in the Canary Islands in the past. He coached Tenerife for the 1988-89 season, after having worked at CSKA from 1966 to 1988!

Stats fact:

CSKA leads the 2018-19 EuroLeague in total rebounds (39.3 rpg.), while Gran Canaria is first in offensive rebounds (14 orpg.), with CSKA right behind (13 orpg.). As such, controlling the defensive boards will be one of the biggest keys to this game.

Keys to victory: Gran Canaria

Gran Canaria has struggled from the three-point line (29.5%) despite ranking fifth in attempts (26 per game). It needs to improve its accuracy and effectiveness to have better chances against CSKA, but the fact that three-point bomber Marcus Eriksson is back definitely helps.
