Week 9 of 2012-13 Turkish Airlines Euroleague Top 16
With five games today, and three more tomorrow, competition in Turkish Airlines Euroleague TOP 16 will enter in Week 9.
After eight played games, there are no undefeated teams, even we have three teams with great 7-1 record, Real Madrid, Anadolu Efes in Group E and FC Barcelona Regal in Group F.
At same time, two teams are still without single win, Brose Baskets in Group E and Besiktas JK in Group F.
Today’s action start with Besiktas JK vs. Olympiacos Piraeus at 19.00 CET. Olympiacos at position 4 with 5-3 will try to reach important win in road game.
I am sure that Besiktas JK still believe that miracle may happen, and I am sure that they won’t give up.
At 20.30 CET, Caja Laboral will host Maccabi Electra in game which is expected to be very interesting. Maccabi will try to get back on the track.
Caja Laboral at position 5 with 4-4 record will try to use advantage of home court and reach important win, against Maccabi Electra who has 3-5 record.
Tomorrow, early action will start at 17.00 CET with CSKA Moscow vs. Alba Berlin, in game where is expected that CSKA reach easy win at home.
CSKA holds position 3 with 5-3 record, and Alba Berlin at position 7 in Gruop E have 1-7 record, and it would be big surprise if they win.
According to Turkish Airlines Euroleague official site, Game of the week is clash between, Montepaschi Siena vs. Fenerbahce Ulker, even I believe that there are few more interesting games in this week.
