THE TAKE

Both teams are looking for their first win, which makes this game even more critical. Sassari plays run-and-gun basketball, so Edgar Sosa and Jerome Dyson must set the right game tempo to get David Logan and Rakim Sanders involved as often as possible. At the same time, Unics relies on Nikos Zisis and Curtis Jerrells to control the rhythm and help Unics beat Sassari's full-court pressure. Keith Langford and James White will see most of the playing at the wings against Logan and Sanders. Jeff Brooks and Miroslav Todic are ready for a big battle against Viktor Sanikidze and Kostas Kaimakoglou at power forward. Dimitry Sokolov and D'or Fischer must use their experience and shot-blocking skills against Marco Cusin and Shane Lawal. Unics has to prevent Sassari from running the floor, while Sassari must stop Langford and White to increase its chances to win this important game.

Quotes Head Coaches

PEDOULAKIS, ARGIRIS
Unics Kazan
"Dinamo Sassari is a good team, which plays with a lot of speed and energy. What is typical to them is that they always press a lot in offense and play secure defensively. We shall pay attention to their speed to be competitive in the game. We will play at home again this time, and we will be looking forward to show a good game."
SACCHETTI, ROMEO
Dinamo Banco di Sardegna Sassari
"We're going in Russia to play against a great team, one of the best three in our round with Real Madrid and Anadolu Efes. In Unics there are a lot of players that we knew from italian league like Langford, Sanikidze and White. We have to play hard and score a lot."
