After a disappointing no-show by CSKA Moscow in the first Euroleague Final Four game, BallinEurope hopes that the clash of Spanish basketball superpowers lives up to the “Il Classico”…perhaps the biggest news/speculation regards Nathan Jawai, who was such a force in the playoff round for Barca; at least one Spain-based source claims that the big guy will not play at all. With Pete Mickael already out, this cannot be good news.
As for Real Madrid, it seems like ages since they last suited up for a Euroleague game. Will the long respite hurt or help?
Follow along below with BallinEurope and comment at will; enjoy the game, all!
