    The only question about MTA is the final place. Somewhere 4-6 imo.

    First 6 are quite obvious right now. It's hard to admit but I think that we won't make it this year, schedule is ultra brutal and we lost our chances last week in double-header.

    I think Valencia has a good schedule until the end and if they beat Fener they will end up 7th, I expect Fener on 8th place. Or vice versa. Olimpia, Himki and Zvezda with some chances but in my opinion behind Valencia and Fener.

    MTA is too far ahead and too good at home to miss now...Their injuries are probably gonna cost them home court in the playoffs though.....

    I think Ponsarnau is an underrated coach and that team does have character and good offensive depth......The defense is a weakness though....

    Pretty sure the top 6 are set and if Fener does get in that makes 7......So the question becomes is it gonna be Valencia or Milan ? I don't think CZ and Khimki are quite good enough.....Thought Khimki was gonna make it when they were 6-2 but not anymore......

    Hard to say about MTA. I think things are very fragile there. A few losses and we might see spirits break. The team is physically and emotionally strung maybe a little too high for this stage - there's plenty more to go and that team has been through a lot already!

    yes, the first 6 is more or less settled, and that's why I think it's important to finish at the top 2 spots; there is a clear-cut quality difference between the first 6 and the rest.
    Efes may prefer another team than Fener at 7/8th place but Fener is still much more preferable than any of the top other 5 above, so it won't really matter.

    I think the last 2 spots will eventually go to Fener and Oly.

    I'm sticking to my pre-season predictions (in no particular order): Real, Barca, CSKA, Efes, Maccabi, PAO, Fener, Milan. Back then had 7 sure teams and thought that for the last spot it will be a race between PAO with Pedoulakis and Khimki ,with PAO having an upper hand. Now with Pitino PAO should be safe. Khimki with Shved won't make it. I think those surprise packages like Zvezda, Valencia will go down a bit and fall short of making it, while Fener eventually will jump into PO train, Milan will keep its position.

    In my opinion the fight for the last place will be between Valencia, Red star and Zalgiris and maybe maybe Alba Berlin . Not Milano and not Olympiacos.

    10 games to go; 7th to 14th places are spearated by 2 wins, maybe 3 tomorrow: 8 teams fighting for 2 places.
    With Fener, Zalgiris, Valencia, and Oly there, all looking good, I think this is going to be a great late season.

    Oly looking good? They are without Spanulis, Rochestie, and with injured Printezis. Yes, they got some victories, but they can't make to the PO. Their game in Saint Petersburg and Kaunas were their real face, not this friendly game against CSKA.

    After the round 23;

    Efes (1) - Valencia (8)
    Real (2) - Fener (7)
    Barça (3) - Pao (6)
    CSKA (4) - Maccabi (5)

    In this circumstances, I would rather be the 8th and choose Efes as a opponent, no disrespect to Efes, I think they are playing better than Real and especially Larkin is the best player right now, but Real is always dangerous at away games and especially with referees.

    With Efes, we wouldn't get any trouble about the ambiance and supporters, instead we would have the advantage in Sinan Erdem arena,

    If I have to choose a second opponent, I would choose Barça, Barça too have ambiance and supporter advantage like Real as well as the referees are siding with them, but Real is a little better and more experienced in comparison with Barça who didn't make Final Four since 2014.
