Nobody would believe that Fenerbahce will win so easy the Turkish Cup in the absence of their main 2 centers: Jan Vesely and Joffrey Lauvergne. The only big man remaining Ahmet Duverioglu seemed fragile in front of Bryant Dunston, but Luigi Datome stepped out with a big performance: 22 points and 7 rebounds.
If I were Engin Ataman I would have left out for this game a small guy, maybe Rodrigue Beaubois who had a disastrous percentage scoring just 1 from 9 from the field and I would have included in the roster Tibor Pleiss or Brock Motum in order to dominate in the paint.
Fenerbahce managed to win without both classical centers also because Anadolu Efes didn’t play the big card: their visible advantage under the basket.
