Basket Zaragoza and Gran Canaria meet Wednesday morning in Spain ACB basketball action at the La Fonteta.
Basket Zaragoza could use a feel good victory here to snap a three-game losing streak. Basket Zaragoza is averaging 40 points on 33.3 percent shooting and allowing 82 points on 51.9 percent shooting. Alexandro Vicente is averaging 11 points and two assists while Santiago Calvo is averaging eight points and three rebounds. Aitor Etxeguren is grabbing 12 rebounds and Jorge Belmonte is grabbing four rebounds. Basket Zaragoza is shooting 33.8 percent from beyond the arc and 85.7 percent from the free throw line. Basket Zaragoza is allowing 38.1 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 32.2 rebounds per game.
Gran Canaria look for another victory after winning three of their last four games. Gran Canaria is averaging 80.7 points on 53 percent shooting and allowing 81.2 points on 52.2 percent shooting. Demonte Harper is averaging 13.2 points and 1.9 assists while Matt Costello is averaging 10.8 points and 7.6 rebounds. John Shuma is dishing 1.4 assists and Javier Beiran is grabbing 4.8 rebounds. Gran Canaria is shooting 36.8 percent from beyond the arc and 73.7 percent from the free throw line. Gran Canaria is allowing 36.4 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 32.5 rebounds per game.
Gran Canaria has won six of the last nine meetings against Basket Zaragoza, but they’ve been on the losing side in three of the last four meetings.
Basket Zaragoza has simply not played well since returning and that includes allowing 113 points in their latest loss to MoraBanc Andorra. Gran Canaria has scored a combined 195 points in its last two games and is fresh off an overtime victory, which usually gives a team some extra pep in its step. We also have h2h numbers that favor Gran Canaria long term, as they've won six of the last nine meetings and they usually have their way offensively in those games.
I'll lay the reasonable chalk with Gran Canaria, the team that's in much better form at the moment.
