So, this should be an interesting CSKA Moscow vs Zalgiris Kaunas Euroleague matchup, please read our preview below.
This year the Russians are defending the title, and so far they are playing well, considering the early injury of Clyburn, who was supposed to be one of the leaders. Nevertheless, Cska game is quite unpredictable, they may play well against Barcelona in an away game, but manage to lose against Olympiacos at home. So the most important thing they must fix is focus and stability, with that done, the Russians once again would one of the most likely title contenders. However, coach Itoudis still has a lot of work to do and must concentrate on the next game against a very well known opponent, who is trying to recover from very important loses.
Zalgiris is struggling very much this season, so many lost games, where they were supposed to grab an easy win. For now, it seems that players cant control pressure because their shooting percentage is just horrible in Euroleague. Unlike in LKL where they shoot over 50% of three-point shots. So Jasikevicius must teach players how to handle stress because in their previous game against Alba Zalgiris made only 2 three-point shots out of 23. Also scored only 62 points, it is a very poor result for a team like this.
