KB vs ANA Dream11: Anadolu Efes will be eying their sixth consecutive win in EuroLeague when they hit the road for a round-12 match against Saski Baskonia at Fernando Buesa Arena. Anadolu are leading the table in EuroLeague having won nine times out of 11 games, while Saski are reeling in the middle of the table and face a battle to qualify for the knockout stages.
Anadolu are 92 in the season and lead second-placed Real Madrid by one game. But if they drop the next game, Madrid will be moving to the top of the table due to their better points difference.
Saski Baskonia, on the other hand, can go above Olimpia Milano onto the seventh place with a win in this game. But it’s easier said than done because Anadolu are on a roll, perhaps the best team on current form, and Saski’s own performances don’t bode well for their chances in this game. Still, they are at home and should count their chances here.
