The Take

Red-hot Fenerbahce Dogus looks to complete a perfect January when it hosts FC Barcelona Lassa. Fenerbahce has won the last four clashes between these teams, including a 68-83 decision in December when Kostas Sloukas scored 17 points off the bench. The champs are now tied for second place in the standings at 13-6 following four consecutive wins; Barcelona is tied for 11th at 7-12. Fenerbahce’s great form is a result of great defense; it has allowed the second-fewest points per game (73.6) and the fewest rebounds (31.5) in the league this season. On offense, Fenerbahce is second in the league in three-point accuracy (41.1%). Among the go-to guys the team leans on most are Round 19 MVP Brad Wanamaker (12.7 ppg., 4.0 apg.), star center Jan Vesely (13.6 ppg.) and sharpshooting forward Gigi Datome (10.2 ppg.). Barcelona leads the league in assists (20.9 apg.) and is among the leaders in rebounding (35.4 rpg.) and two-point accuracy (54.6%). Point guard Thomas Heurtel (10.6 ppg., 6.5 apg.) is a big reason why, with Rakim Sanders, Adam Hanga and Pierre Oriola all playing key roles on a deep Barcelona squad. Both teams are missing key players, with James Nunnally and Nikola Kalinic for Fenerbahce and Kevin Seraphin of Barcelona doubtful to play. Fenerbahce is the natural favorite at home, especially against a Barcelona team that is 1-8 on the road thus far, but for Coach Alonso’s team to make a serious playoff run, every game is of the utmost importance already.
