The Take

Act four of the series between Baskonia and Fenerbahce will take place on Thursday night when Baskonia hosts Fenerbahce in an attempt to keep its season alive. After Fenerbahce took care of its home court in the first two games, Baskonia cut the series deficit to 2-1 by protecting its home floor in an 88-83 win in Game 3 on Tuesday. Rodrigue Beaubois led the way with 21 points and he is now averaging 15 points per game in this series. Along with fellow sharpshooter Matt Janning (12.7 ppg., 3FG 50% in the playoffs), Beaubois leads a Baskonia backcourt that is trying an up-tempo style of play to keep Fenerbahce defense off balance. With Jayson Granger sidelined in first two games and limited in Game 3, Marcelinho Huertas and Luca Vildoza have run Baskonia’s offense. And while they had success offensively, they also had trouble of their own containing Fenerbahce’s offense. Kostas Sloukas (11 ppg., 9.3 apg.) has Fenerbahce's offense clicking, and together with Brad Wanamaker (13.3 ppg in the series) creates all kind of trouble for Baskonia. However, the biggest battle in this hard-fought series has been in the paint. Baskonia big man Toko Shengelia has been all over the place in this series with 12.7 points, 6.3 rebounds and 3.7 assists, and his frontcourt mates Vincent Poirier (10 ppg., 5.3 rpg.) and Johannes Vogitmann (8.3 ppg) had a big impact of their own, but have not been able to contain (Jan Vesely 15.3 ppg., 8 rpg.) who is mostly paired up with Nicolo Melli (7.3 ppg., 4 rpg.). This highly-entertaining series has been played at a very high level and nothing less is expected for Game 4.

Head Coaches

MARTINEZ, PEDRO
KIROLBET Baskonia Vitoria Gasteiz
"Yesterday's win lets us stay alive in the EuroLeague, but we are still on a knife's edge. We have to maintain our level of intensity and concentration because Fenerbahce is a team that doesn't allow you to get distracted. These are very tough games and I expect the same on Thursday. There are always adjustments to make and we hope to play the best game we can."
OBRADOVIC, ZELJKO
Fenerbahce Dogus Istanbul
"We have one more great opportunity to finish the series and go where everybody wants to go: to the Final Four. To do this we need to play better than we did in the third game, to play with more concentration and not have these bad moments like we had during the third game. And to find a way to play better. "
