THE TAKE

It is a never-seen-before showdown in European competitions. Madrid is on a 22-game home-court winning streak in the competition and Nizhny looks for its first-ever Euroleague road win. Madrid relies on Sergio Rodriguez and Sergio Llull to set the right game tempo and stop Taylor Rochestie, whose deep shootingrange and creativity are one of the keys to Nizhny's success. Nizhny needs a good game from Will Daniels, Art Parakhouski and Trey Thompkins around the baskets, as Madrid can dominate the boards with good rebounders such as Gustavo Ayon, Felipe Reyes and Ioannis Bourousis. Semen Antonov and Andres Nocioni face each other in a key matchup, just as Rudy Fernandez and Tarence Kinsey at small forward. Due to its greater depth and impressive home record, Madrid is the favourite but Nizhny will battle for what would be a prestigious and critical win.

Quotes Head Coaches

LASO, PABLO
Real Madrid
"We have Bourousis with knee problems and also he got a blow in the same spot in the last Spanish League game. He did not practice as precaution. Maciulis has also calf problems and didn't practice either. I hope both will be available tomorrow. Nizhny Novgorod is not probably too well-known on names alone. Maybe Rochestie, who was in Vitoria, is the most well-known together withKinsey. Both are in the group of most important players in this team. Rochestie generates game from point while Kinsey has good shot, penetrates well and is quite mobile. Inisde, Nizhny has big men that know how to open up and take threes. We must remember we play against a Euroleague team. They are dangerous and they can score. We will have to make a solid defensive effort from the get go."
BAGATSKIS, AINARS
Nizhny Novgorod
"Real Madrid is one of the top favorites to win the title this season. They have two top class players at each position. They are yet to find their game this season and they were fortunate to win the game in Kazan last week. Your can't surprise Real with your skills so I think we need to play with great determination and respect the name of our club."

Players

AYON, GUSTAVO
Real Madrid
"Nizhny Novgorod is a dangerous opponent. They have players with an ease to score and we will have to play good defense on them to keep adding wins at home. We are fine, adapting as a team. We must keep improving day by day with the games and using what we do well as a starting point. We must keep growing from there."
ROCHESTIE, TAYLOR
Nizhny Novgorod
"We aren't nervous at all. We just need to come out with a lot of energy and execute our game plan. No one expects us to win and that could be our advantage."
