Maccabi FOX Tel Aviv vs Herbalife Gran Canaria

GranCan forward Rabaseda has happy memories of Maccabi.

Gran Canaria forward Xavi Rabaseda didn’t taste too much EuroLeague action during his time with Barcelona at the start of his career, but one of his most significant performances came in a 70-67 win over Maccabi in February 2012, when he dished a career-high 3 assists.

AX Armani Exchange Olimpia Milan vs Fenerbahce Istanbul

Jerrells counts Fenerbahce among his former clubs.

Well-travelled Milan sharp-shooter Curtis Jerrells had a season with Fenerbahce in 2011-12, averaging 8.6 points per game over 14 appearances.

FC Barcelona Lassa vs Buducnost VOLI Podgorica

Throwback to the dawn of the new millennium.

Barcelona and Buducnost have met on just two previous occasions, in the very first season of the new century. A Barcelona team featuring Sarunas Jasikevicius, Pau Gasol and Juan Carlos Navarro won both games.

Khimki Moscow Region vs CSKA Moscow

Shved started his career with CSKA.

Alexey Shved won the Top Scorer Trophy last season, but his career started with CSKA more than a decade ago. His EuroLeague debut came as an 18-year-old in a home win over Zalgiris in January 2007.

Darussafaka Tefken Istanbul vs FC Bayern Munich

Repeat from last season’s EuroCup semi-final.

This game will be a rematch from last season’s 7DAYS EuroCup last four encounter, which eventual champ Darussafaka won in thrilling circumstances with a pair of very close victories, triumphing 76-74 and 83-87.

KIROLBET Baskonia Vitoria Gasteiz vs Anadolu Efes Istanbul

Parity reigns between Baskonia and Efes.

Before this season there has been absolute parity between these teams this century, with eight wins apiece. Remarkably, the last 12 games have been won by alternate teams, with neither winning two in a row since 2007.

Olympiacos Piraeus vs Zalgiris Kaunas

Familiar feel to end-of-season fixture.

These two teams will be getting used to the sight of each other in springtime: they met in the final round of last year’s regular season and then immediately again in the playoffs, taken 3-1 by Zalgiris.
