EuroCup FabFive tips: Narrowing it down!

There may be just two games in the 7DAYS EuroCup this week, but both of them are do-or-die for all four teams! It is Game 3 of the EuroCup Quarterfinals. UNICS Kazan hosts Lokomotiv Kuban Krasnodar and AS Monaco welcomes Buducnost VOLI Podgorica. The winners will advance to the EuroCup Semifinals, starting next week, and the losers will be eliminated.

The two other teams still alive are Herbalife Gran Canaria and Virtus Segafredo Bologna. Their players are not available this week, and for a good reason: Virtus and Gran Canaria swept their quarterfinal series and are waiting for their next opponents. Therefore, only players from four teams can be chosen in FabFive this week.

Expect this to be the standard from now on, though, as only four teams will be left standing after Wednesday. With all that in mind, we present a list of FabFive Challenge recommendations for Game 3 of the quarterfinals.

Range 1 (0 to 3.99) – Not many players in Range 1 are even getting playing time, so we are going to keep the player we recommended last week: Luka Mitrovic of Buducnost. He is talented, experienced and may see extended minutes on the floor if Buducnost needs a spark on offense.

Range 2 (4 to 7.99) – Monaco needs to stop Willie Reed down low and one of its most reliable big men is Damien Inglis. When given playing time, Inglis had some good scoring games this season, getting 17 points against Virtus and 16 against Unicaja Malaga, and should have his chances in Game 3.

Range 3 (8 to 11.99) – Only eight players available, and we will choose someone ready to bounce back. Jordan Morgan of UNICS only had 2 points in Game 2 against Lokomotiv. Throughout the season, Morgan was one of his team's most solid scorers, and UNICS expects a lot from him.

Range 4 (12 to 14.99) – Mathias Lessort of Monaco missed a jump hook in the final seconds of Game 1, and immediately bounced back in Game 2 with a huge performance. Lessort seems to be on a mission to take Monaco to the semifinals and is definitely his team's frontcourt reference.

Range 5 (15.0 or higher) – Nigel Williams-Goss of Lokomotiv is the man of the moment, and the go-to guy this week. He had 31 points against UNICS in Game 1 and netted 25 in Game 2. Williams-Goss is the quarterfinals' top scorer, is still available this week, and every top manager should go for him.
