Crvena Zvezda vs Zalgiris Kaunas
Serbian Crvena Zvezda is currently on a 4 match winning streak and continued it even after being down by 19 points against the Lyon in last tour. Anyway, Crvena Zvezda managed to win the 3rd quarter 34-16 and won the game later on in the 4th quarter. It seems like Zvezda got a mental boost after Vladimir Stimac arrived and this team is one of the hottest at the moment. L. Brown is one of the clutches players in whole Euroleague and managed to take over at least 2 games by himself, while additions of Punter and Stimac were also huge ones. It will be a good time for Zvezda to see what they are capable of against one of the best-coached teams in Euroleague on Wednesday evening.
Zalgiris hasn’t been shooting the ball well at 1st round of Euroleague and the team won only 5 matches despite most of them being very close ones. Anyway, last 3 games Zalgiris were playing very well and the shots started to fall. It led to Zalgiris winning 2 out of last 3 matches and only losing to Real Madrid by 6 points in away game. Even though the Crvena Zvezda team is on a good run these past few weeks, Zalgiris will definitely come up well prepared and potentially they have a lot of good players to rely on. It will be a tough match, but the one which may give a huge boost if Zalgiris manages to win.
Crvena Zvezda won 3 out of the last 5 games these two teams played against each other, including one earlier this season.
