It is really a mistery why EA7 is playing so awfully with such a roster, full of quality and talent. Ioannis Bouroussis is showing his real value after some perfectable seasons, and Keith Langford is just a champion at Euroleague's level of competition. Nevertheless, they still have big troubles: just look at their first defeat in Eurolegue (85-95 against Caja Laboral), or at the incredible defeat against Trenkwalder Reggiana in the last Lega A match. I think that Coach Sergio Scariolo is not understanding the real problems of his team; EA7 is still a very unpredictable team, but his most important players always give all themselves in Eurolegue (what they do not do in Lega A: just look at Cook, Hendrix and Langford himself). I think that Zalgiris is playing really perfectly (3/3 in Euroleague since now, defeating nothing less then Caja Laboral and Olympiakos), and they got an interesting roster (just look at the arrivals of the two Lavrinovic and Rimantas Kaukenas), but I think they are doing really too much compared to their real possibilities (I mean: they will for sure pass this round, but not with 100% of wins!). In other words, I think that they will not be able to destroy EA7. The italian team will be also really angry after the incredible home defeat against Reggiana in Lega A: therefore, I think that 7,5 points is a good handicap for Olimpia Milano, and that they will cover it. Just 2 units of stake because I am not sure about Langford's conditions (he did not play against Reggiana), and he is really a big part of Olimpia's attack.
