Maccabi Tel Aviv
Tel Aviv Maccabi (19-9) had a 5 win streak before entering the 28th round. Tel Aviv played Crvena Zvezda on the road last week and that’s where their winning streak has ended. Maccabi hasn’t looked like themselves in that match, as they made only 33% of three-pointers, while Crvena Zvezda shot at 56% from the 3-point line. Maccabi is usually the team with a fast play-style and good shooting percentages, but we got a chance to see what happens when the offence doesn’t work. It’s the defence that causes some struggles for Maccabi and in order to really make a run in playoffs, they can’t rely only on the offensive end.
Baskonia (12-16) is back in the playoff considerations. After having a terrible start of the season and a lot of changes were made for this team, Baskonia have finally found their way to victories. 4 out of 5 last matches were won, including the one last week against Alba Berlin at home, where Baskonia had 5 points deficit with a minute left to play. It was an incredible performance by them to come back into the match with a game-winning shot by M. Janning. The main thing that was fixed for Baskonia after D. Ivkovic became the head coach is a strong defence. Baskonia only allowed the average of 68 points in their last 4 victories and a good defence leads to the easy offence. If Baskonia keeps playing this way they might have good chances of reaching the playoffs.
