The Take

The hosts look to grab a Top 16 ticket, while Limoges tries to stay in the race when these teams meet again on Thursday. Laboral Kutxa pounded Limoges CSP 71-107 when then played in Round 3 with Darius Adams delivering a master performance to claim weekly MVP honors. Another Laboral win would be worth a Top 16 spot provided that Olympiacos beats EA7 Milan later Thursday. Laboral is unbeaten at home so far this season and has done so thanks to tremendous interior play, led by center Ioannis Bourousis, who is the league leader in performance index rating (25.1) and rebounds (10.1 rpg.). Laboral is ranked atop the league in defensive rebounds (27.7 rpg.), third in blocks (3.9 bpg.), fouls drawn (23.7) and free throws made (121). However, its perimeter defenders Adam Hanga, Fabien Causuer and Adams are among the reasons Laboral is also second in steals (8.6 spg.) and third in three-pointers made (63). Limoges looks to bounce back after back-to-back loses through its go-to core of guards Heiko Schaffartzik and Leo Westermann, small forward Nobel Boungou-Colo and center Ali Traore. Limoges knows what areas it must improve to take down Laboral, it is second-bottom in the competition in rebounds (30.3 rpg.), leads the league with 19 turnovers per game and has attempted the fewest free throws (98) in the league this season. Even though Limoges has fared well with its outside shooting, it will need Traore and co. to control the paint better to have a shot at winning on the road.
