THE TAKE

Two teams coming off road losses look to rebound. Despite a great game from point guard Marcus Williams and solid scoring from Jaka Blazic, Zvezda lost as it was unable to effectively fee Boban Marjanovic inside. Valencia enjoyed strong play from its point guard Sam Van Rossom and power forward Luka Harangody, but poor shooting damned it to a second loss. Williams and Van Rossom will lock horns in one of this game’s most-important matchups. Valencia will look to Kreso Loncar and Serhiy Lishchuk to rely on their experience and find a way to stop Marjanovic. Dwight Buycks provides an offensive boost for Valencia off the bench; much like counterpart Blazic. The versatile Luka Mitrovic could play a major role at power forward opposite Harangody in another intriguing matchup. Zvezda has rebounded much better than Valencia thus far this season and if it can do so again will have a significant advantage in this exciting contest.

Quotes Head Coaches

RADONJIC, DEJAN
Crvena Zvezda Telekom Belgrade
"Our next opponent is a very experienced team that we highly respect. They won the Eurocup last season, which is an amazing result. Valencia is a team with a lot of experience and many excellent players so we definitely expect a difficult match. We are hoping for support from our fans once again which is extremely important for our young team."
PERASOVIC, VELIMIR
Valencia Basket
"All games are important and I am sure things won't be sorted out until the last round. I don't see dramatism in our last loss and I don't thinke there will be any if we lose this game. Kombank Arena is a place where the fans push a lot, and there is pressure for everyone on the court. It's beautiful to play in this kind of atmosphere... especially for the home team!"

Players

JENKINS, CHARLES
Crvena Zvezda Telekom Belgrade
"It is going to be a difficult game. There is no doubt about it. Valencia has a great team with many talented players on all positions. Regardless of their two defeats in the Euroleague, I think they played very well in both of those games. It is enough to look at their players to realize this is an excellent team. Since we are playing against such a strong opponent, we will need all our mental and physical strength for the duel to get a good result. We will try to play aggressive defense as in the previous games and to improve our rebounds because that can give us a chance for easy points in transition."
