THE TAKE

The hosts finish off their Turkish Airlines Euroleague campaign, while the visitors seek a victory to extend theirs. Valencia has been mathematically eliminated from Top 16 contention, though its European campaign will continue in the Eurocup Last 32. Neptunas, which is thus far winless on the road, would catapult itself into the Top 16 with a victory. A Neptunas loss however would open the door for Galatasaray Liv Hospital, which would overtake Neptunas for fourth place and a ticket to the Top 16 if it beats Olympiacos. Deividas Gailius scored 19 points and the team shot 11 for 21 from downtown (52.4%) in beating Valencia at home last month. Valencia has since added Nemanja Nedovic to strengthen its backcourt and he will join Pau Ribas outside and Bojan Dubljevic in the paint to spur Valencia to a farewell victory. Keith Benson gives Neptunas a second option with Simas Galdikas inside, while Donatas Zavackas and Gailius remain the visitors’ top scoring threats. This game has the potential to make history and will surely be a tense and dramatic 40 minutes.

Quotes Head Coaches

PERASOVIC, VELIMIR
Valencia Basket
"We want to put an end to our Euroleague adventure with a win. For the Eurocup calendar we have to try to be as high as possible in the group. It has been a disappointment to fall in the Euroleague so soon, we have played many games that we could have won and we haven't. We showed we could compete but now a new competition will start for us. We will play the Eurocup with all our ambition."
MAKSVYTIS, KAZYS
Neptunas Klaipeda
"Valencia is a serious team and doesn't allow for mistakes. So we have a very difficult game in front of us and we have to give the 100 percent of our energy to take the victory. We have to worry about what we can control and think of how to win the match."

Players

MARTINEZ, RAFA
Valencia Basket
"Every year is a different story, some projects need more time, some less. The truth is that we never imagined to be in this situation at this point, but we must give this team some time. It's been a disappointment to fail to be in the Top 16, but I think that we have to get up to play well the rest of the season, bot at home and in the Eurocup. We must be positive and think that we have a good team to improve the situation."
MAZEIKA, MARTYNAS
Neptunas Klaipeda
"We know how big this team is and how difficult it was for us to beat them here in Klaipeda. Valencia is a big name in basketball and they have great players, so we have to give 120 percent. It would be great to make it to the Top 16. We need to win. We have to prepare the game against Valencia and try to beat them."
