The Take

Undefeated and already-qualified Lokomotiv Kuban Krasnodar (7-0) welcomes Lietuvos Rytas Vilnius (4-3) for Round 8. The guests will have to win if they want to stay at the front of the Top 16 race, but a loss would not be fatal. This will be the fourth time both sides meet in the EuroCup, with Loko winning all of the previous three. The last win came in Round 3, 85-93, behind 21 points from Joe Ragland. After seven rounds, Ragland (14.9 ppg., 5.1 apg.) remains the main focus for Loko on offense, with Ryan Broekhoff (11.6 ppg.) and Trevor Lacey (11.3 ppg.) also playing key roles. For Rytas, Loukas Mavrokefalidis is having a stellar season (16.6 ppg., 5.5 rpg.), aided by Rokas Giedraitis (14.0 ppg.) and EuroCup assists leader Chris Kramer (13.0 ppg., 7.6 apg.). Rytas boasts the best offense in the competition (89.5 ppg.) and will try to put that to good use, especially since Loko has the third-best defense overall (73.3 ppg.). It will be a clash of styles between two of the four best teams in collective PIR in the competition. Both do their thing, and do it pretty well. Loko won't have the pressure of fighting for a ticket, but pride could get in Rytas's way if the hosts want to clinch first place already this round.
