The Take

A ticket to the top 16 could very well be handed out at the end of this clash in the capital of Croatia. Host Cedevita controls its own destiny and will advance with a victory. Efes must win and have both Limoges CSP and EA7 Milan lose to go through this week. After starting the season with back-to-back losses, Cedevita first found its form during a 75-81 victory over Efes in Istanbul in Round 3. Center Miro Bilan, forward Luka Babic and point guard Jacob Pullen all played prominent roles in that win and remain the heart of the Cedevita attack. Cedevita remains a team strongest when playing inside-out; it ranks fifth in the league in two-point accuracy (54.0%), but is second worst in three-point shooting (30.2%). Efes, the league’s No. 2 scoring team (86.6 ppg.) is just the opposite as it has made the most threes (83) at the highest rate of success (48.0%). Efes also takes care of the ball well – much due to the league’s co-assists lead, Thomas Heurtel; it has the third-best assist-to-turnover ratio at 1.52-to-1. While the matchup between Heurtel and Pullen will likely be a key factor in the outcome, Efes will look to Bryant Dunston and Alex Tyus to contain Bilan. Efes’s Croatian forward Dario Saric could also be a difference-maker in his homecoming, where he will line up across from nation team mate Marko Arapovic. With Top 16 tickets at stake, this game should be an action-packed 40 minutes.

Game Notes

Cedevita Zagreb

James White leads the league through Round 7 in minutes played with 234:18 – or 33:28 per game.

White recorded the first and to date only double-double of his Euroleague career in last season’s season opener against Efes. White tallied 13 points and 10 rebounds for Unics Kazan in an 82-76 defeat in Istanbul.

White is averaging 14.7 points, 6 rebounds and a performance index rating of 19 in home games this season, but just 8.8 points, 4.7 rebounds and an index rating of 6.5 on the road.

Miro Bilan has scored in double figures in each of his last 12 Euroleague games.

Fran Pilepic is a perfect 14 for 14 on free throws in his Euroleague career.

Pilepic has made at least 1 three-pointer in each of his last four games; he is shooting 5 for 7 from downtown over that span.

Jacob Pullen has made 11 consecutive free throws in Euroleague games.

Luka Babic has made 9 consecutive free throws in Euroleague games.

Anadolu Efes Istanbul

Anadolu Efes leads the league in three-point shooting at 47.98% through Round 7.

Thomas Heurtel is tied with Crvena Zvezda playmaker Stefan Jovic for the Euroleague lead through seven games this season with 7.7 assists per game.

Heurtel needs just 20 more assists to become the 18th player in competition history to reach 500 career assists.

Jon Diebler leads the league in three-pointers made through Round 7 this season with 26; he has made multiple three-pointers in every game this season.

Jayson Granger has made at least 1 three-pointer in nine straight Euroleague games.

Dario Saric has made 13 consecutive free throws in Euroleague games.

Saric was a teammate of Cedevita players Marko Arapovic, Tomislav Zubcic and Lovro Mazalin at different periods at Cibona Zagreb between 2012 and 2014.

Saric has played alongside both Luka Zoric and Miro Bilan over recent summers on the Croatian national team.

Birkan Batuk is averaging 14 points on 70% three-point shooting (7 of 10) on the road this season compared to 1 points on 25% from downtown (1 of 4) at home.
