It’s the first of our playoff previews and we delve into the right hand side of the bracket. Reigning champion #2 Fenerbahçe Doğuş aims to make it four Final Fours in a row against #7 Kirolbet Baskonia and #3 Olympiacos takes on playoff newcomers #6 Zalgiris Kaunas.
We’re joined by our man in Ataşehir, in the shadows of Ulker Arena, Savaş Birdal, as well as early bird Austin Green and the studious George Rowland. Who do we trust on Fenerbahçe, and is the team as strong as last year? Can Toko Shengelia carry Baskonia to an upset? Does Olympiacos have the guards to cut off Kevin Pangos’ playmaking and will Zalgiris have the depth to succeed?
We chat through matchups, beards, post-up guards and the rest, and make our bold, guaranteed to be on-point predictions.
