Since last game at Budućnost, Darussafaka is officially the worst team of the league this season. By my estimate, at the moment Zalgiris and Darussafaka are in worst offensive shape. Darussafaka had somewhat more points than I expected in last game but before that against CSKA they made some really poor offensive decisions and were indecisive in situations where they had clear open space for driving layup but instead players were passing the ball further or back to 3 pt line. They are also pretty poor shooters lately. Main threat of this team is coming from the paint what I don't see as enough and Efes has strong players under rim.
All though Efes was like CSKA relying only on their offense I can see small difference in defensive approach to the better. At the same time offensively Efes is playing their regular game and making threats from all around but still mostly from three pointers.
I see this game as one road game even though in Turkish championship it was close and also in first round of the Euroleague. Simply Efes is in decent shape and Darussafaka is not and also there is no hopes for Darussafaka in this competition for this season anymore. They also played preseason friendly and this is a result I could see today, 88:68.
