Joventut Badalona is coming off a much needed overtime victory over Bilbao, but some would say its a loss just for needing overtime to close that game out, and they scored just seven points in the third quarter. Unicaja has been terrific offensively in their last few games, and while they lost to a red hot Barcelona team, they more than held their own in the losing effort and actually had a three point lead at halftime. Unicaja is playing the better basketball by far after the break and has beat up on Joventut Badalona in five of the last six meetings.
This should be a rather easy victory for Unicaja taking everything into consideration.
