The Take

Two teams coming off losses meet when Real Madrid (12-7) hosts last-placed Anadolu Efes Istanbul (5-14). The visitors, who have lost seven of their last nine games, won't have it easy against a Real Madrid team that will want to get back to winning quickly after its seven-game winning streak was snapped in Round 19. Real Madrid is 19-6 in games against Efes since the turn of the century, including a 74-88 road win in Round 1 behind 27 points from Luka Doncic. Doncic (17.3 ppg., 4.5 ppg.) has been the main option for the hosts all season, while Trey Thompkins (10.0 ppg.), Rudy Fernandez (8.6 ppg.) and center Edy Tavares (5.9 rpg., 1.2 bpg.) have played significant roles. For Efes, Errick McCollum (15.1 ppg.) leads the way followed by big men Vladimir Stimac (10.7 ppg., 7.2 ppg.) and Bryant Dunston (10.4 ppg., 6.1 rpg.). Recent-signing Toney Douglas scored 29 last week and could become a major factor for Efes going forward. The hosts have the second-best offense in the league (84.5 ppg.) and go against the second-weakest defense in the competition (85.3 ppg.). Efes will have to regroup quickly and try to start adding wins to keep hope of getting on the playoffs train. Los Blancos are in a much better position at the moment and will look to get back to winning at home.
