Anadolu Efes vs Real Madrid Preview


Real Madrid topped the 2016-17 Euroleague regular season only to lose to eventual champion Fenerbahce in the Final Four in Istanbul and to CSKA Moscow in the third-place battle. 

Los Blancos also fell short in the Liga ACB after losing to Valencia in four games in the best-of-five finals. The consolation for Real Madrid was it won a fourth consecutive Copa del Rey title and Sergio Llull was voted as Euroleague MVP after putting up 16.5 points and 5.9 assists.

Llull, however, is expected to miss much of the 2017-18 season after suffering a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee while playing for Spain in a Eurobasket tune-up game against Belgium in Tenerife last August.

Expected to lead Pablo Laso-mentored Los Blancos in his absence are big men Gustavo Ayon and Anthony Randolph, Jaycee Carroll and Rising Star winner Luka Doncic. Randolph and Doncic helped Slovenia win its maiden Eurobasket title last month. 

Also back are veterans Rudy Fernandez, Jonas Maciulis and Felipe Reyes plus American reinforcements Trey Thompkins and Jeffrey Taylor. 

Big man Othello Hunter left Real Madrid in the offseason to join CSKA Moscow while Andres Nocioni announced his retirement. To make up for their departure, the powerhouse club signed Serbian center Ognjen Kuzmic plus guards Fabien Causeur, Facundo Campazzo and Chasson Randle,

Efes, meanwhile, finished sixth in the 2017 Euroleague regular season and lost to Olympiacos in five games in the playoffs. The Turkish club underwent some changes in the offseason following the departure of Thomas Heurtel, Tyler Honeycutt, Deshaun Thomas, Jayson Granger and Brandon Paul.

Among the Istanbul club's new recruits are big men Vladimir Stimac, Brock Motum and former NBA player Ricky Ledo. 

Other new faces include former EuroCup MVP Errick McCollum, Josh Adams, Edo Muric and Krunoslav Simon and the returning Birkan Batuk. Head coach Velimir Perasovic returns along with Derrick Brown, Bryant Dunston and Dogus Balbay.

Real Madrid won both meetings against Efes last season.
