Two big teams meet in the Euroleague for the first time. Zalgiris has been rock-solid in the paint with Robertas Javtokas, Paulius Jankunas and youngster Arturas Gudaitis playing stellar roles. Javtokas and Gudaitis must battle hard against experienced big men D’Or Fischer and Dmitriy Sokolov. Jankunas and Darius Songaila will not have it easy against the always-active Viktor Sanikidze and Kostas Kaimakoglou at power forward. Unics has a lot of options at the wings, but Keith Langford and James White will see most playing there. White must use his size against Edgaras Ulanovas and James Anderson, while Langford will test his scoring skills against three-point threat Arturas Milaknis. Curtis Jerrells and Nikos Zisis are more experienced than Lukas Lekavicius and Vaidas Kariniauskas, but the young Zalgiris point guard duo has lived up to the expectations and are ready for a new challenge.
