NEWS | 03/11/2019 | Edu BuenoThe Whites head to Vitoria in search of a seventh consecutive win in the league (6:30pm CET).
Real Madrid will also try to remain unbeaten in the league. They are the only team to boast such a feat. Only Unicaja have won here this season (77-78) but the madridistas have a good record in recent visits. They will face a Baskonia with high morale as they beat Bayern Munich by 33 points just 48 hours ago.
With well-matched offenses (87.8 points on average for Real Madrid, 84.5 for the baskonistas), defense will be key. Laso's team have conceded 10 points fewer than Baskonia in the league (70.5 compared to 80.8). Baskonia have the highest two-point percentage in the league (61.4%) while Real Madrid are the best from the free-throw line (44.5%). These two sides have the best team play, with many players able to take on an offensive role.
Perasovic's side has specialists in every position. The guards Vildoza and Henry give great cover. Janning and Garino are the real back court threat. In the paint, Shengelia provides points while Fall (2.21) and Diop (2.10), the intimidation. Tavares, was dominant against Alba Berlin, and Randolph showed class. Both of these factors will be needed while Garuba's energy will help Real Madrid hold off Baskonia to continue their positive run at the Buesa Arena.
