THE TAKE

Two deep and experienced teams target their first wins in this clash. Galatasaray shot poorly in its opener last week, but now at home Carlos Arroyo and co. look to bounce back. Valencia struggled on the glass as it lost at home and will need to play tough inside on the road. Luke Harangody, Kreso Loncar, Serhiy Lishchuk and Vladimir Lucic anchor Valencia inside against Galatasaray’s Furkan Aldemir, Nate Jawai, Ian Vougioukas and Zoran Erceg. Galatasaray has lots of options and different looks on the wings with scorer Pietro Aradori, do-it-all types like Vladimir Micov and Nolan Smith, lockdown defender Sinan Guler and the athletic Marty Pocius. Valencia will follow the lead of Rafa Martinez, Dwight Buycks and Romain Sato, with Pau Ribas and Sam Van Rossom sharing the playmaking duties. Who will rise to the occasion this time?

Quotes Head Coaches

PERASOVIC, VELIMIR
Valencia Basket
"We must play really well. We are facing a team that scores a lot, a team with great players. Their roster is one of the best in the Turkish League and also the Euroleague. I think we can beat anybody if we playw ell. We must play good defense because Galatasaray plays a great pick and roll, especially in the situations in which they take an advantage thanks to their individual quality. They have many weapons, as they can also play good fastbreaks."

Players

SATO, ROMAIN
Valencia Basket
"We're going to play in one of the hottest arenas in the Euroleague. Galatasaray is a very difficult team, especially when they play at home, They had a great last year in the Euroleague, reaching the Playoffs, and this will be a good game for both teams. We have both started with a loss and we want the first W as soon as possible. We must stay focused for the 40 minutes in order to have options to win this game."
