Cedevita Olimpija Ljubljana's (0-8) long quest for a first victory of the season faces its latest chapter with a visit from high-flying Paris Basketball (7-1), which is eager to recover from the blip of its first defeat of the campaign against Besiktas.
First and last do battle as Paris visits Cedevita
The game is highlighted by a backcourt battle between the league's leading assisters, with Cedevita's Klemen Prepelic (9.3 assists per game) going up against Paris orchestrator TJ Shorts (7.6 apg.). The host's cause is helped by the presence of Justin Cobbs, who scored 19 points on his return from injury last week. Paris will again look to the long-range shooting prowess of Nadir Hifi, who has made 15 of his last 26 three-pointers.
