The halfway point of the 2015-16 Turkish Airlines Euroleague Regular Season arrived with just one team able to stay unbeaten, none other than Unicaja Malaga, which won a first-place duel with CSKA Moscow. Fenerbahce Istanbul and Olympiacos Piraeus also sit atop their groups, while FC Barcelona Lassa and Lokomotiv Kuban Krasnodar share the lead in another. All teams start seeing each other again for a second time starting in Round 6! The first possibility for a team to qualify mathematically to the Top 16 is for Unicaja Malaga. On the other side, there is still one winless team in the competition, Dinamo Banco di Sardegna Sassari.
