Key facts for the game: - Surprisingly the odds for an Aris win are still relatively high and the handicap is at only 3 points. Talent wise there is simply no comparison between the two teams. Despite losing Sanikidze to injury, Aris have brought in experienced big man Dragisevic to replace him while today is returning Jenkins too, so they will be at full strength for the match. Rethymno made an encouraging start against Kolossos last week but this a completely different level of competition they will be facing here.

Key facts for the game: - Perasovic faces his former team as Efes meets Baskonia and he will certainly have some trick up his sleeve. Efes has built a formidable team with very few if any weaknesses and they also seemed to develop a pretty good chemistry this early in the season. Baskonia looked understandably inconsistent so far after bringing in 8 new faces in the off season including new head coach Sito Alonso and need more time to gel, while Beaubois still remains in the sidelines.

They possess an impressive squad depth that even some Euroleague teams would envy and have made a flying start to the season with 4 consecutive wins in the Bundesliga. I just can't see Zenit as the favourites here.

Sassari have had a great off-season in the market (Odom, Savanovic, Carter) and were one of the first teams to complete their roster, so their preparation is on a good level as they demonstrated in their season opener to highly ambitious Varese. It's worth noting that the game will be played nearby at Bologna, not Reggio Emilia making the outcome even more uncertain.

Still they have made some nice additions combining savvy veterans like Doblas and Tapoutos with young talented players like Wells and Basabe and they are guided by Charis Markopoulos, the son of PAOK's coach. Are they ready to go? Probably not but I have the feeling they won't as helpless as the odds suggest. Moreover PAOK are facing their own problems with injuries to Margaritis and Miljenovic.

Key facts for the game: - Start of the season games are usually a high risk high reward affair. This game is the perfect example. Bilbao had a great debut on the road against Fuenlabrada while Estudiantes were disappointing at home losing easily to Betis. Nevertheless Bilbao looks weakened compared to last season's team. Coach Sito Alonso is gone along with Hannah, Todorovic and Bertans. Estudiantes have added some interesting pieces in Edwin Jackson, Jamar Wilson, Suton and Ali Traore and I reckon they are not as bad as their debut would suggest but probably need time to develop some chemistry. Besides ups and downs are to be expected this early in the season. In any case at these odds they are worth a try.

Key facts for the game: - Avellino and Torino are two highly ambitious teams who have a playoff spot as a minimum goal this season. Both have kept their respective coaches (Sacripanti and Vitucci) but have changed their roster significantly with the addition of some quality players. Adonis Thomas, Cusin and Fesenko stand out for the hosts, Chris Wright and Washington for the visitors. Overall there is not a huge gap in talent between the two sides and obviously the level of preparation for both teams is still precarious making the outcome of the match even more uncertain.
- Fesenko is still unfit so he will probably not feature heavily tomorrow.

- Spain will be present with almost all their stars in the tournament with the only exception of Marc Gasol but their quality and depth is phenomenal. Perhaps they lack in a true quality substitute for Pau Gasol at the center position but Croatia has no players capable of exploiting that and tiring Gasol out.

- Italy have a much more complete roster, a better coach in Messina and are playing at home in front of their fans in Turin.

Moreover with the exception of Perperoglou the whole team seems to lack in 3point shooting and their efficiency in half court game situations remains to been seen.
- Mexico maybe missing their superstar Ayon but they still have the talent to be competitive (Stoll,Gutierrez) and this team has already had more games under their belt after competing in the Centrobasket 2016 in late June, so they should be ready.

In fact Valencia was competitive for 3 quarters and it took a record breaking fourth quarter from Real in which they scored 35 points to reach the final result.
- Despite shooting with 39% from the arc during the season, Valencia went for 2/22 in Thursday's game 1 in Madrid. It will be difficult having such a horrid shooting night for a second time in a row, not with Real's anyway shaky defense.
