The Take

Darussafaka has the chance to qualify to the Top 16 if it wins and should Dinamo Sassari beat Maccabi one night earlier. Unicaja has already qualified to the Top 16 and now is in the hunt for first place in Group D. Unicaja is taking good care of the ball - it gives up just 10.4 turnovers per game, in part because its opponents average a league-low 4.14 steals - and is doing well on the boards, too, allowing just 29.3 rebounds per game. Unicaja ranks second in assists (20.3 apg.) and third in offensive rebounds (12.7 orpg.) and two-point shooting percentage (54.8%). Darussafaka must change those numbers by dominating the defensive boards and putting pressure on Unicaja to make mistakes. Jamon Gordon will play a key role as Darussafaka's defensive leader, but Manuchar Markoishvili, Scottie Wilbekin and Reggie Redding need to step up against a deep Unicaja backcourt led by Nemanja Nedovic, Stefan Markovic, Edwin Jackson and Jamar Smith. The matchup between Mindaugas Kuzminskas and Emir Preldzic, two talented, yet very different players, promises to be a key to this game. Semih Erden, Milko Bjelica, Luke Harangody and Furkan Aldemir will be the hosts' main options around the basket, but Unicaja relies on rock-solid Will Thomas, Richard Hendrix and Fran Vazquez to dominate the boards. Expect a very intense showdown at Volkswagen Arena.
