Barça and Anadolu Efes are watching Larkin

The point guard, a black beast of the Catalans in recent years, is a doubt for the game due to physical problems (9:00 p.m., DAZN).

Barça will try today to start the month of February as it ended January: winning. But to maintain the immaculate streak that he adds in 2021 (ten consecutive victories between the League and the Euroleague) he will have to overcome one of the teams that has given the Catalans the most problems in recent years: Anadolus Efes. The Turks, who have won the last two meetings with the Catalans, are also in good shape, having won four of the last five European matches (watch the game live on AS.com) .

The main unknown that hangs over the game is the participation of Larkin, probably the player in Europe who has done the most damage to Barça. All a 'black beast' for the Catalans, but whose presence on the court is not guaranteed: the player suffered a small injury in the last match of the domestic competition and is a doubt to face Barça today. If he is on the floor, Barça will have to watch him very closely.

Beyond Larkin, Barça would do well to also control Micic (15 points and 5 assists on average) since he is a point guard who can not only generate play, but also score easily. Something that costs a little more to Calathes, who against Olympiakos lowered the level a bit. Nothing worrisome, he came from performing at a very high level in previous games, but today Barça will need the best version of Greek to defeat Efes.

The team from Jasikevicius will try to set the game on the same lines as the last ones, where the defense has ended up being the key to taking off on the scoreboard. With the presence of Mirotic and Davies the team has gained strength in the paint.
