In the clash between FC Barcelona Lassa and Fenerbahce Istanbul on Friday night, we are going to enjoy a Final Four-level showdown, one of many that this year’s Turkish Airlines EuroLeague Regular Season has to offer! Both teams started out the season with wins and in this upcoming battle, two players who play in different positions are going to be key. Both Ante Tomic and Luigi Datome define their team’s offenses to a large extent. They score, they have the quality to create plays for themselves in the halfcourt game, and often the way they move and function determines the right spacing between the players, something that all coaches place great emphasis on.
