The Take

Khimki will take the floor for the first time this season under Coach Rimas Kurtinaitis, who was handed the reins to the team earlier this week. The roster he has at his disposal remains in flux with star guard Alexey Shved nearing his return, while forward Anthony Gill is likely out. Khimki has lost back-to-back games, but has won four of its last five at home. Bayern remains at the bottom end of the playoff zone despite losing three of its last four, but must reverse that trend to keep its spot among the top eight teams. Bayern is 2-7 on the road this season.

Marquee matchup

Explosive newcomers Jordan Mickey of Khimki and Derrick Williams of Bayern have both enjoyed extremely productive starts to their EuroLeague careers. They both lead their respective teams in scoring and rebounding with Mickey worth 13.6 points and 5.0 boards and Williams posting 13.6 points and 4.2 rebounds. Though they won's necessarily match up often – Mickey spends more time in the paint and Williams attacks from the outside-in, each will be a focal point of the opponent's defensive schemes.

Earlier this season

Bayern bested Khimki 72-65 in Round 11 led by Nihad Dedovic and Vladimir Lucic's combined 27 points. Playmaker Stefan Jovic tallied 9 points and 9 assists for the victors. Bayern led most of the way, but Khimki stayed close and a pair of late Stefan Markovic triples made it a one-possession game, however, Dedovic and Derrick Williams combined for 6 free throws in the final minute to secure the Bayern win.

Keys to victory: Khimki

You can count on Khimki players giving a maximum effort to try to prove themselves in their first game under Coach Kurtinaitis. Aside from that, there will be little time to make too many strategic changes, but Kurtinaitis will surely look to tinker with some things. One thing that Khimki can improve on is its rebounding (30.0 rpg.), which is the second lowest in the league in front of only Bayern (29.4 rpg.).

Keys to victory: Bayern

It will be tough for Bayern to prepare for a Khimki squad playing for a new coach and without some key players. Looking inside, Khimki is among the league's best at minimizing turnovers (11.2 TOpg.) and would be wise to continue that this week in Moscow.
