    I still dont see the point of this game, useless for me. By the way, both teams will want to end the FF in a good way.

    this game will be a mental torture to both sides.
    Real will probably win it in cruise control, they may be in better shape mentally.

    I think so, if I were Obradovic, I will rest my injured players. Congrats Levenespiel for what your team achieved yesterday, I hope you sin the cup, Efes is a nice team with a good basketball tradition.

    When I had tickets in 2013 I skipped this game despite being in London for the day - says it all.

    Shame there isn't a reward to give the teams more incentive - maybe a lifeline for next season in the form of the right to a wildcard playoff if they don't finish in the top 8? Or an EL place for those teams who don't have A-licenses (wouldn't be much use to Fener and Real I confess but would have helped Lokomotiv Kuban in 2016).

    For clubs like Kuban or Zalgiris last year, or Efes now, being alone in Final4 is great thing. Not that we don't want to win it all, it's pity when you lose semi, but you always have a motivation to play for 3rd place, atleast we had in 2018 and we were happy winning it. CSKA slept at first, but had all the motivation later, just for the sake of a win. It's hard to make this game valuable, not under current format and you can't drop it, cause afterall it's 4 teams/2 games each event. For travelling fans it'd make harder life either. Overall current format of EL is dumb. 30 games, where teams which goal is title has to play, then your fate usually decides in 1-2. Yeah, it's more emotional, surprising way, but I want best team to win, not otherway around. Make it freaking series. This way regular season would mean much more too

    Regarding this game, I would be surprised if Fener will reborn. If only Real will have some motivation left, they will overrun, overjump and overscore them

    Next year, 34 games in RS. I had to admite that NBA's RS is really boring, but in the playoffs, the level is increased a 10000%

    FF format is enjoyable, but a PO to decide the champ would give sense to a long RS. There are a lot of memorables QF playoffs, imagine that in a final playoffs (best of 7 for example). It would be insane.

    I see Real as winner but I expect much more playing time for Biberovic. It could be good investment in future
    After anemic game of our main players I see no point to force them again

    Euroleague should remove these irrelevant games. If they want to see more games due to financial reasons then turn the format to best out of 5 in the semi-finals and the finals.

    Instead we've 3rd position game and more irrelevant regular season games after securing the homecourt advantage...

    Guduric stated that this games has no sense, and more having Real Madrid a crucial game on Wednesday vs Valencia.

    Nothing worse at this level to be the circus before the main event. It's torture for both teams and their fans alike.

    This is simply inhuman to make teams play this game. Not even for the sake of fans.

    Thanks, Mr Chacho.

    I agree, replacing F4 with the playoffs makes sense for a long RS. Teams will have time to make adjustments to their opponents, which in itself is fun to follow (esp in the NBA).

    Having finished 1. position in the regular season. Our team has been humiliated in F4. Sorry for my team, we really did not deserve this kind of end.

    Yup, finishing the regular season at no.1 place didn't help any team so far, being a late bloomer is the key. And we've seen how important Datome for us in important games, all we can do is to hope that Datome returns and Vesely heals fully until the TBL final.

    Ayón use to play well vs Vesely, so his game is not a surprise. Campazzo with a assist record in a single FF game.

    Fener fans are too bad with his team, that can happen. Basketball.
