Barça defends the leadership against a Baskonia on a streak

Both teams arrive at a good moment to the match, but the visitors accumulate five consecutive victories in the Euroleague.


The first glances of tonight's game between Barça and Baskonia will not be directed to the court, and it is that Pau Gasol will probably be in the stands of the Palau. Already in Barcelona, against Baskonia it will be the first time he will have to see his new teammates up close, although the time to dress short is still far away (follow the game live on

Those who will be on the floor, and will focus all the attention once the crash starts, they are two teams with enormous potential and that are in a good dynamic. While Barça started the week with a prestigious victory in the Panathinaikos pavilion dispelling any doubts about its European performance, Baskonia has accumulated five consecutive victories in continental competition. And they were not just victories, but in most of those matches the Basques swept their rival off the court.Mirotic and Higgins

Barça faces the clash with an exceptional cast of players, but with Mirotic and Higgins in a particularly good moment. The first, represents a huge threat to his rivals: his shooting range always creates problems for his defenders. Higgins, for his part, has been playing at a very high level for a long time and it is a game that, when the game gets complicated, is not afraid to take center stage.With the return of Claver, Sergi Martínez is losing minutes while Pustovyi will do it when Pau enters the team (although he was already out of the last game in the Euroleague). Increasingly confident Bolmaro may once again be the first choice to relieve Calathes, putting Westermann out of the rotation again.

With Vildoza at the controls of the team, Ivanovic's men will have to be especially attentive in defense to prevent Barça from leaving the game. With very good shooting percentages for both teams, defense will again be key. Polonara will have to dance with Mirotic, while his teammates must be attentive to Barça's outside shot.
