16/01/2015 20:00 – Crvena Zvezda Telekom Belgrade v Galatasaray Liv Hospital Istanbul
The nature of the Euroleague means that some teams can play each other on a number of occasions during a single campaign and this will be the third game between Crvena Zvezda and Galatasaray this campaign. If the last agme was anything to go by, the Friday night game should be worth watching as the last one was an absolute nail-biter. Galatasaray won with a three pointer from Zoran Erceg in double overtime, clinching the game in a 110-103 win. That game witnessed Marcus Williams grab a Euroleague record of 17 assists so it will be difficult for this game to live up to that match but there is certainly a lot to look forward to.

Belgrade need a win in the Top 16
The team from Belgrade come into this match with a 6-6 record but this includes a 0-2 record in the Top 16.

The team has managed to score an average of 76.9 points per game in the Euroleague and a lot of their play has flowed through Boban Marjanovic this campaign. The Serbian center has offered an average of 15.6 points per game and an average of 10.2 rebounds per game. Belgrade have also been boosted by the form of Marcus Williams, the US guard who has offered an average of 11.8 points per game, an average of 3.8 rebounds per game while also grabbing an average of 6.7 assists per game.
While the Euroleague has posed some problems, Crvena have been in excellent form in the Adriatic League, winning 17 games in a row to hold a 17-0 record. Mind you, their last game was a close one, winning 75-77 away to Mega Leks.
Turkish side hoping for home comforts
