Maccabi look to have the edge

Maccabi hold a 4-3 record in the Euroleague this season and they have been grabbing an average of 77 points per game. A lot of this is down to the form of Devin Smith, who has been averaging 14.8 points per game and 7.3 rebounds per game while Jeremy Pargo has also been stepping up for Electra. Pargo has offered 13.4 points per game and 5.9 assists per game in the Euroleague so far. If these two hit the heights they have scaled this season, there should be a home win in Tel Aviv on Thursday night. Away from the Euroleague, Maccabi hold a 7-2 record in their domestic league, which leaves them sitting in second place in their league.

Alba Berlin currently hold a 3-4 record and they have been averaging 76.42 points per game, marginally less than the Maccabi average. It is not as if you can look at the average points and predict how the match will turn out on that alone but there are signs that this will be a close game. Jamel McLean has been in excellent form for Berlin this season, grabbing an average of 13.3 points per game while also delivering an average of 4.9 rebounds per game. Reggie Redding has also helped Berlin, providing 12 points per game and an average of 4.6 rebounds per game. Life in the Euroleague has been tough for Alba but in their domestic league, they are cruising at the moment, sitting first with a 10-0 record.
