Major Matchup: Maccabi’s Zizic vs. Fenerbahce’s Vesely
Zizic numbers took a hit last week when he was a non-factor in the team’s big win in Barcelona. He was held scoreless for the first time all season and played just 10 minutes in which he missed his only shot and posted a PIR of 0. That came after he shined with a career-high 24 points against LDLC ASVEL Villeurbanne in Round 33. Zizic posted 9 points and 11 boards against Fenerbahce when they met in Round 15 and he will be eager to register another strong performance on the eve of the playoffs.
