After dramatically losing the last two Euroleague games against Anadolu Efes at home and at Olimpia Milano by just 1 point, Khimki Moscow has no choice but to win in front of the newcomer Herbalife Gran Canaria.
The good news for the Russians is the comeback from injury of Anthony Gill, one of their most constant player on both sides of the court. He is completely recovered and he played last days in VTB League against Unics Kazan, that’s why I think that Alexey Shved & co. won’t have any problem on smashing Gran Canaria (who, by the way, will make a long a tiring journey to Moscow).
Last year’s playoff team Khimki have to search desperately their first victory of this Euroleague season. They are 0-4 ‘till now and another lost game can create a big gap between them and the good spots of the ranking. So, there is no other way than winning.
