Our Expert Predictions & Analysis on Lokomotiv-Kuban vs Pari NN


The Railwaymen traditionally slept through the start of the tournament. Now they occupy only 11th place in the VTB United League 2023/24 table out of 14 possible. Loko has three wins in seven championship matches. Moreover, two of them happened in extreme battles. There is reason to believe that the club is gradually starting to come into its own.

"Steam Locomotives" are scoring good points. On average, they send more than 80 points into the opponent’s ring per match. There are only four clubs in the tournament that are currently better in this indicator. At the same time, it must be said that not everything is good with the implementation of the Krasnodar team. Plus, Loko's basketball players work very confidently on the backboard. In terms of rebounds, only PARMA is better than them in the VTB League 2023/24.

Jaylen Burford leads the team in points per game and assists (14.7 and 3.8, respectively). He said in a recent interview that the team is maximally focused on the battle against Pari NN.

Pari NN

The team won three out of six matches in the current tournament. With this achievement, the Nizhny Novgorod team is now conditionally in eighth place in the overall standings of the VTB United League. Not bad, but there are some nuances. The last three battles in the championship were handed over to rivals. The series of failures dragged on. It's sad and offensive, but there is an explanation for this. Four key basketball players of the club (Dragan Apich, Dmitry Khvostov, Alexa Novakovic and Ivan Strebkov) missed these games due to injuries. By the way, it’s far from a fact that any of these guys will be 100% ready for the battle with the “railroad workers.”

On average, PARI basketball players score 78.5 points per match in the current championship, with a relatively good shooting percentage. Although there is something to complain about. For example, rebounds. In terms of fighting on the shield, only Avtodor and MINSK perform worse. This moment is worrying. The opponent for the next match is not very accurate, but he is very persistent in terms of rebounds.
