The Take

Two teams with different agendas clash in the Serbian capital for this encounter. Crvena Zvezda mts Belgrade (15-13) will enter the game knowing whether it can reach the playoffs with a victory. If Darussafaka loses in Germany on Thursday, a Zvezda victory is worth a playoff ticket. However if Darussafaka wins, this game will have no impact on the playoff race and Zvezda will travel to Istanbul in Round 30 for a winner-take-all duel with Darussafaka for a playoff berth. Unics Kazan (7-21) will be looking to snap a 12-game losing streak in the EuroLeague in its second-to-last game of the season. Unics boasts the league’s top scorer in Keith Langford (22.3 ppg.), but he will be challenged by Zvezda’s staunch defense, which has allowed the second-fewest points (73.6 ppg.) in the competition. Langford could have it even tougher if point guard Quino Colom (11.3 ppg., 5.7 apg.) is out after leaving last week’s game with an injury, though it can rely on stud center Art Parakhouski (11,6 ppg., 1.4 bpg.) and guard Anton Ponkrashov, who just returned from injury himself, to share the load. Zvezda, which has lost three of its last four games, has injury concerns of its own with playmaker Stefan Jovic. Sharpshooting forward Marko Simonovic (12.7 ppg.), center Ognjen Kuzmic (9.4 ppg., 7.2 rpg.) and guard Charles Jenkins (9.3 ppg., 2.0 spg.) give Coach Radonjic a strong core to work with in these tough games.
