A good week for the boys had Slam going 9-3 and Freaknick at 11-1, which means Freaknick leapfrogs Slam and the season standings are as follows: SLAM: 43-17; FREAKNICK: 44-16. Freaknick takes a 1 game lead in this tug-o-war match, but that doesn’t mean Slam won’t find his wisdom again. Week 7 might end up being a make or break week for a lot of teams so let’s see who they pick. Also, you can read Freaknick’s extended preview in SLAM Magazine.
Asvel @ FB Ulker
Slam: Asvel has a tough road ahead with games at Ulker and Siena, along with a home contest against Barcelona. I think it’s going to amount to three straight losses with the first one in Istanbul. FB Ulker
Slam: Rytas win’s this game and it might not even be close as Martynas Gecevicius gets his long distance stroke back and goes bonkers. Rytas
Union Olimpija @ Maroussi
Slam: Maroussi already took care of business against Union on the road and I think it will be the same result back home. Maroussi
Freaknick: Union Olimpija.
Panathinaikos @ BC Khimki
Slam: Khimki lost this game by 33 points last time out, 33 points. I know they’re undefeated at home but that will end here. Panathinaikos
Real Madrid @ Asseco Prokom
Slam: Once Felipe Reyes gets comfortable look out, Madrid rolls and then it’s only 1 month til I get to see them live. Madrid
EWE Baskets @ AJ Milano
Slam: I’ve been an AJ supporter all season long and I can’t let them down now, GO MILANO. Breakout game for the young Jeff Viaggiano. Milano
Freaknick: AJ Milano.
Barcelona @ Cibona
Slam: I’m still riding shotgun on the blue Cibona bandwagon thinking they have a chance to get to the Top 16 so why not? They get a win in a trap game for Barcelona….. WHAT, did you think I went crazy? I like Cibona but Barca in a rout. Barcelona
Montepaschi Siena @ Zalgiris
Slam: Zalgiris hasn’t won a game since week 1, I would say that’s not good for their future outlook. Siena
Freaknick: Montepaschi Siena.
Unicaja @ Olympiacos
Slam: Oooo yes this should be a dandy, the best teams in Group B going at it. I’ve picked against Olympiacos way too many times at home and I can’t do it again here. Olympiacos
Efes Pilsen @ Partizan
Slam: Did anyone else see what Partizan did to Unicaja last week? I’ve got to ride with the Gravediggers at home. Partizan
Caja Laboral @ Maccabi Electra
Slam: This looks like what could be the makings of another great game. Tiago Splitter wants to show everyone that he alone should be better than the entire Maccabi frontline, mark him down for 20 and 10. Caja
Freaknick: Caja Laboral.
CSKA Moscow @ Lottomatica Roma
Slam: One team is going one way and the other team is going another, if you get my drift. Look out for Moscow. Moscow
Freaknick: CSKA Moscow.
