Zalgiris Kaunas has lost seven straight games in Turkish Airlines EuroLeague and stand at the bottom of the standings together with Zenit St Petersburg (3-10 records).

They will look to bounce back during the double-game week but their first challenge will be hosting Anadolu Efes which currently holds the first place. Zalgiris coach Sarunas Jasikevicius is aware of the opponents quality and marked them as the best team in Europe at the moment:

Anadolu Efes is very dangerous. Their main strength is that they have a lot of players who are creative. And they play together not for the first year, for the same coach, in the same system. And they are playing really beautiful basketball. If the ball is moving, they are punishing you with three-pointers. They are fantastic at creating effective possessions and they are the best team in Europe right now,” he said.
