The Greeks who began the powerful season of the D team won four wins in the first four matches and in the fifth match, just at the end of the match, they stumbled upon one of the top priorities in Strasbourg's SIG.
"The Greeks have become somewhat unexpected for our group," said Kazy's Maxvytis coach on the website bcneptunas.lt. "This team, however, shows a good game both in the Champions League and on the local front. Promitheas has players who make the right decisions and can win the match. Although the patriotic team debuts on the international front, it has many experienced players and a good coach. "
47-year-old M. Giatras is a living legend in Patras. In 2013, the specialist became the club's sports director and manager and after a year, Promitheas won the fourth division of the country. A year later triumph of the third in terms of capacity in the Greek championship.
So Giatras led something to the club to the highest Greek league, and last year he traveled with the team to the semi-final in the country, which guaranteed the Champions League position.
Although Promitheas has retained most of last season's players, it has also filled with strong newcomers. Their main is Ron Brown's 27-year-old.
The Americans reported themselves in the Champions League in the 2016-17 season, when they represented Joensuu Kataja's team from Finland, the second most successful (17.9 points on average) basketball player was at the forefront.
This season, Brown has an average win of 16.4 points (trit 50%), hits 4.4 points, performs 2 returns and collects 17.2 points of usefulness.
Neptune's coach K. Maksvytis also emphasizes Promithea's leaders.
"We have to stop R. Brown, who is a shock and a good metch," said a port specialist. "Teamally, we must emphasize the rival's rapid attack, because it is a very good ride for the crew, especially for the defenders, but it's not inconvenient for the good defense to be high. "
The team also has losses – they do not play 5.8 points and defender Langston Halls defends 3.8.
The involvement of Prometheus midfielder Octavius Ellis, who missed the last game, is also doubtful. The center plays on average for almost 14 minutes, returns 7.3 points and returns to 3.5 points.
"It's a well-played and strong team with lots of meticons and an interesting offensive. The patriotic team shows beautiful and beautiful basketball, and if Promitheas tells a lot that last week was overcome by Jonas Mačiulis represented by Athens AEK," – K. Maksvytis praised the rivals.
"Neptune" gave Kyle Weaver a rest during the weekend, which was recently affected by an injury to the ankle. However, the striker, like the rest of the harbor town's basketball player, will be ready to play.
The Klaipeda team will try to defeat the traditions and try to defend the home fortress, where this Champions League season has not yet been defeated. In victory, Neptune will get the Greeks third place.
Coach K.Maxvytis loses support for more fans, who previously gave a big boost to the team.
"If I'm open, I'm a bit uncomfortable, because the team is playing pretty well," said a specialist. "The opponents are not bad, but their presence has fallen a bit. Spectators may be tired of basketball, because Klaipeda has always been a playful "Švyturys" arena. We hope the viewers start to visit more, we play a much more fun full room. "
The start of the match at the "Švyturys" arena is 19 hours.
