Both of the semifinal Euroleague Final Four games have been played tonight. The competition officially has its finalists. Moscow’s CSKA will be facing Fenerbahce Istanbul on Sunday.
The Arameitsy lead by captain Miloš Teodosić have beat Lokomotiv Kuban by 88:81. A strong game was eventually decided by the experience of the Moscow red and blues, despite good efforts made by Loko.
The game’s MVP was Nando de Colo who scored a total of 30 points, 6/6 on the free throws, and a PIR of 30, as an ending to an excellent appearance.
The biggest scorer for Lokomotiv was Malcom Delaney with 26 points 12/12 on free throws and a PIR of 24. A clear indicator of how steady individuals have managed to lead up entire squads.
On the other hand, Fener has beat Laboral by 88:77 in a match full of F4 debutants. The squad of the incredibly enthusiastic coach Željko Obradović has made another great success. Their biggest scorer was Bogdan Bogdanović with 18 points, and a 20 val PIR, while the MVP was Kostas Sloukas with 13 points, 4/4 on free throws and a PIR of 20.
The Spanish Laboral Kutxa failed to keep the 3rd quarter pace and has lost a place in the final. The undoubtable MVP for Laboral was Ioannis Bourousis who scored 22 points, with 10 rebounds, and a PIR of 24.
The two finalists, CSKA and Fener will be facing off on Sunday in a match that is bound to be worthy of a great final. Taking into consideration the history of CSKA at this level, as well as the desire that is being promoted by Obradović, it can be anyone’s game.
