Real Madrid and Basket Zaragoza meet Friday morning in Spain ACB basketball action at the La Fonteta.
Real Madrid look for a victory after splitting their last four games. Real Madrid is averaging 86.4 points on 53.6 percent shooting and allowing 77.7 points on 49.2 percent shooting. Anthony Randolph is averaging 13.7 points and 0.4 assists while Trey Thompkins is averaging 10.9 points and 3.9 rebounds. Facundo Campazzo is dishing 7.1 assists and Jordan Mickey is grabbing 4.2 rebounds. Real Madrid is shooting 39 percent from beyond the arc and 79.2 percent from the free throw line. Real Madrid is allowing 32.4 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 34.8 rebounds per game.
Basket Zaragoza look for a statement victory after losing three of their last four games. 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.
Real Madrid has won 26 of the last 28 meetings against Basket Zaragoza, which includes a 22-point victory back in March of this year. However, those two victories for Basket Zaragoza came in two of the last three meetings.
The h2h numbers speak for themselves in this matchup, as Real Madrid has won 26 of the last 28 games against Basket Zaragoza, and they're also playing head and shoulders better basketball overall in the four meetings since the return. With that said, Real Madrid did just get waxed by MoraBanc Andorra in its last time out and I did say we have to be careful about how many points we lay with them considering four of their last six victories have been in the single digits.
I'm going to take a shot with Basket Zaragoza and the boatload of free points.
