The Take

One of the most-passionate fan bases in Europe will bid farewell to the EuroLeague for the season when Galatasaray Odeabank Istanbul hosts its final game of the season against Baskonia Vitoria Gasteiz. Though Galatasaray (10-18) has been eliminated from playoff contention, it has played well as of late and won four of its last five home games. Baskonia (16-12) has claimed a spot in the next phase and though currently ranked seventh, could still climb as many as three more spots if it wins out and other results go its way. Baskonia is perfect in three-previous meetings with Galatasaray in the EuroLeague, including a 69-62 victory in Round 10. The hosts overcame a poor shooting night by outrebounding Galatasaray 49-35 behind 11 boards from Kim to snatch the win. Vladimir Micov (11.3 ppg.) and Sinan Guler (10.2 ppg., 5.6 apg.) for a dynamite one-two punch for Galatasaray, while big men Alex Tyus (10.0 ppg., 1.5 rpg.) and Tibor Pleiss are a lot to handle inside. Baskonia has a balanced lineup with Shane Larkin (12.9 ppg., 5.6 apg.) and Rod Beaubois (11.6 ppg.) providing the perimeter threats and Toko Shengelia (11.2 ppg.) and Johannes Voigtmann (10.1 ppg., 7.4 rpg.) are forces in the frontcourt. One difference between the teams that could prove game-changing is their respective accuracy from behind the arc. Led by Jon Diebler, Galatasaray is second in the league in three-point accuracy (40.2%), while Baskonia (33.8%) is third-bottom. The home-court advantage and great three-point shooting will be a formidable challenge for Baskonia, but as Coach Sito Alonso’s men gear up for the playoffs, they appear up for the challenge.
