Nizhny Novgorod

Nizhny Novgorod is trying to improve and progress. He gives all his best, tries to get out of himself everything that is at his disposal. The coaching staff is actively working on the line-up, trying to find the best combinations of basketball players that will still bring the desired result.

The important point is that the team is on the verge of an abyss, and runs the risk of going on a protracted vacation after the next match. Therefore, there is no reason left to try to save energy and emotions. It is necessary to give everything on the floor in order to at least please your fans and slam the door loudly. Nizhny Novgorod does not spend the whole season in the best way, but in the playoffs it simply has to change. In any other scenario, the vacation will come too quickly, which the players themselves would definitely not want.


Moscow CSKA continues to powerfully pass on rivals. He has a long winning streak. But you need to understand that with each meeting it becomes more and more difficult to achieve results. Basketball players are trying to act in economy mode, because they understand that they have a long competition ahead of them. Therefore, the team will try to easily cover the opponent.

True, the last fight showed that excessive relaxation can fail. It is clear that the team is unlikely to let go of the series, but a separate match can go to the opponent's piggy bank. One gets the feeling that the coaching staff will first rely on powerful legionnaires who can provide a comfortable lead. And after that, the team will be able to experiment with the composition and release young and talented performers.
