The first match is set up to be played between two very well known organizations – CSKA vs Anadolu Efes. To have more insights on this CSKA – Anadolu Efes match, please read our preview below.
CSKA Moscow had a great regular season and finished it in the second spot, being tied for first place with Barcelona (24-10). Despite the absence of their past year’s leader on the court, Mike James, CSKA‘s overall team performance have shown signs of growth throughout the remaining period of the regular season. CSKA have absolutely dominated their first playoff series this season against Fenerbahce Ulker and closed it out in 3 games. This team have definitely got the momentum going into the most important game of the season.
Anadolu Efes (22-12) have finished the regular season in 3rd spot and had to play against one of the European giants, Real Madrid in the first round of the playoffs. This was a very exciting series with 5 games played and it all came down until the last minute. Even though Anadolu Efes looked like a better team throughout most of this series, they made some very uncharacteristic mistakes which led to Real Madrid having a chance to come back in the series, so it will be interesting to see what conclusions have Anadolu made after their last series.
