NEWS | 10/11/2019 | Nacho DíazThe Whites will be looking for their eighth consecutive win at the WiZink Center to continue their unbeaten run (6:30pm CET).
Real Madrid have an iron grip on their domestic competition so far. They've won all of their seven games (three at home and four away). They lead the way on PIR to date (103.7), and sit second in terms of points scored (88.2) and rebounds (39.8), while boasting the league's third-best defense (average of 73.1 points conceded).
Laso's men will be in for a tough test of their offensive prowess against a Unicaja Málaga side who have conceded the second-least number of points in the competition (72.9). That's why, among other things, the accuracy from the 6.75 is sure to be key - and Real Madrid top the table in this regard with 43.7%. It will be a case of continuing the form they showed in the final quarter of the Euroleague clash in Belgrade, where they sunk an impressive 7 from 9.
Fine run for the Malaga team
Unicaja land in Madrid with four wins in the last five league games, two of them away at Baskonia and Valencia Basket. But they'll be up against history too on their visit to the WiZink Center: They've won there only five times in the league, the last coming back in May 2018. The visitors' chances will lie in disrupting the Whites' fast-paced game. Josh Adams, who creates, plays and scores points (15.8), will face a race to be fit after taking a knock on his left knee.
