Valencia Basket- Unics Kazan: a high voltage match-up


Valencia Basket and Unics Kazan will open on San Jose Day a 7DAYS EuroCup semifinals series that faces, if we attend to several statistical criteria, the two best teams of the competition (Tuesday 19, 18:30h, Fonteta, Teledeporte). Two teams that have been champions of this competition will face each other (Valencia Basket in three occasions, Unics Kazan lifted the trophy in 2011). They are the two teams that have take most wins in the tournament (16), although the taronja balance is 16-2 and the green is 16-3 (the Russian team needed to play their third quarterfinal game to eliminate Lokomotiv Kuban Krasnodar.) Valencia Basket finished first in the Top 16 ranking (6-0, +43) and the Unics Kazan finished second in that classification (5-1, +81), so the team that advances in this series will have the home-court advantage in the final, both teams have won all their games at home, the Russian team is the best defense of the competition, but Valencia Basket allowed only 60 points on average for Rytas Vilnius in the quarterfinals. Big holiday in Valencia.
