In the 27th round of action in the Turkish Airlines Euroleague Basketball, two already eliminated teams playing for prestige only are clashing, when Galatasaray Odeabank Istanbul (9-17) welcomes Unics Kazan (7-19) at the Abdi Ipekci Arena of Istanbul, Turkey on Wednesday March 22nd 2017.

Alex Tyus adds 10.2 ppg and team highs in rebounds, with 5.2 per game and blocks, with 1.5 per game.

Unics Kazan have a league-worst record of 7-19 so far this season and are currently tied with Milano in the last place of the league table. They are currently on a free fall, having lost nine consecutive games and last week they lost at home against Zalgiris Kaunas with an 80-82 score. The top scorer of the league, Keith Langford, leads the Unics offense with 22.5 ppg, 3.6 rpg and 3.7 apg. He is followed by Artsiom Parakhouski with 11.7 ppg, adding team highs in rebounds with 5.1 per game and blocks, with 1.3 per game. Quim Colom also adds 11.7 ppg and a team high 5.8 assists per game.

This will be the fourth time these two teams meet in Euroleague with Unics Kazan having a 3-0 lead. In their previous meeting earlier this season, Unics Kazan won at home with a 73-60 score. Galatasaray have a 7-6 home record so far in the competition, while Unics Kazan are 2-10 on the road. Galatasaray are better offensively, scoring 78.4 ppg to Unics’ 77, while Unics have a better defense, allowing 81.3 ppg to Galatasaray’s 82.8.

Galatasaray are third in the league in assists, with 19.6 to Unics’ 15.8 and they also have a league-best 3.7 blocks per game, to Unics’ 2.8.
