Reigning champ Real Madrid (7-0) will aim to prolong its blistering start to the season against an AS Monaco (5-3) team looking to reboot after seeing its five-game winning streak snapped at home by Efes earlier in the week.
Real welcomes Monaco for a top-four showdown
A must-watch duel comes in the backcourt between the league's top rated guards, Facundo Campazzo (20.4 PIR per game) and Mike James (19.6 PIR). The host will also look to impose its authority in the paint through giant Walter Tavares, who blocked 4 shots in Tuesday's hard-earned victory at Valencia. The task of containing him falls to the smooth footwork of Donatas Moteijunas, who has the ability to stretch the floor with a 40% three-point conversion rate so far this season.
