Unicaja clings to the Nzosa effect against Ejim's Buducnost

Granca and Andorra open the day against Virtus and Cedevita. The rest of the matches, on Wednesday: Bahçesehir-Joventut and Unicaja-Buducnost.


Gran Canaria opens the third day of the Eurocup as far as Spanish teams are concerned in Ljubljana (Slovenia) against Cedevita Olimpija (6:30 p.m., DAZN). The island team's rival is the curious result of the merger of Ljubljana-based KK Olimpija from Slovenia and Croatian club KK Cedevita from Zagreb. First time this happens with two teams from different countries. El Granca have won both of their matches in this competition.

Funny about the Cedevita. It is the first team to lose a match 0-20 in European competitions due to a positive for COVID-19. The Balkan team should have faced the Turkish Frutti Extra Bursaspor last Wednesday, but the match was not played due to the aforementioned circumstance.

For its part, Andorra will receive the illustrious Virtus Bolonia, a great one who has come to less than that but has excellent players such as Teodosic, the eternal shooter or the former Unicaja Markovic and Josh Adams. The Andorrans have improved their bad start with victories in Antwerp and Manresa.

The rest of the games are played on Wednesdays. Joventut visit Istanbul to face Bahçesehir Koleji (6:00 PM DAZN), an Ottoman team without the potential of the country's traditional bigwigs. Those of Carles Durán have started like a shot. 4/5 victories in Liga Endesa and full in Europe.

Unicaja, which achieved a very important and revitalizing victory in Valencia, receives Buducnost at the Martín Carpena (8:45 p.m. Martín Carpena DAZN). This Montenegrin team will be a tough opponent. He has won both of his matches and features Melvin Ejim. The Canadian played last season for the Malaga team. And since it came out more or less regular, it may come with a desire for revenge and showing off.

The victory in La Fonteta, which has raised the spirits of the Greens, was cemented in the magic triangle formed by Alberto Díaz, Brizuela and Abromaitis. And of course Yannick Nzosa. The young 16-year-old pivot has already accumulated eight blocks in three games, four of them in a single game against Valencia. Youngest player to do so by beating Porzingis' record in a Cajasol (now Coosur-Betis) -Baskonia match in 2013 when he was 18 years and four months old. Another record for the Nzosa Buchaca.

Unicaja, with a win and a loss, must beat Buducnost to avoid complications in this Eurocup.
