Why Darussafaka victory over Baskonia is so huge?

What came as a surprise it’s actually bigger than a simple result. I bet that not many of you expected this final score. But even more, I bet than you didn’t realize that the underdog Darussafaka played against Baskonia having just 5 foreigners in the roster. No Ray Mccallum who parted ways with the team, no Markel Brown and no Jeremy Evans.

In these circumstances I’am not surprised that everybody have bet on Baskonia to win an easy game. The dropping odd on the Spanish team confirmed that.

In a short rotation, Dacka made it. I think it’s one of the best performances of a small team in Euroleague so far this season. Especially when Baskonia came with their new addition, ex-NBA player Jalen Jones and has a much better rotation.

This result confirms the fact that Baskonia is just a home-team and their roster (including the injured Shengelia and Granger) has to be improved. This season, theoretically they have the unique chance to host, enter and win the Euroleague Final4 in Vitoria-Gasteiz.
