Key games this week

Round 29 of the Euroleague 2016-17 regular season will take place on Thursday and Friday. This is the penultimate round of the competition and only one playoff spot is left up for grabs. That berth will go to either Darussafaka Dogus or Crvena Zvezda. Crvena Zvezda (15-13) is currently ranked eighth in the team standings while Darussafaka Dogus (14-14) is just behind. Darussafaka Dogus needs to beat Brose Bamberg in Germany on Thursday to keep its playoff hopes alive while Crvena Zvezda will be in action at home against Unics Kazan. 

Here are some key games this week.

Thursday, March 30
Brose Bamberg vs Darussafaka Dogus (20:00 BST)

Darussafaka Dogus is in a must-win situation when it visits Brose Bamberg on Thursday. The Turkish club is currently in ninth place in the team standings with a 14-14 record, a full game behind Crvena Zvezda with two rounds remaining. Darussafaka Dogus kept its playoff hopes alive after beating domestic rival Galatasaray 73-67 at home last Friday. Brose (10-18), meanwhile, is just out to play the spoiler's role as it is no longer in contention for a playoff spot. Darussafaka Dogus beat Brose 72-70 in their Round 6 duel in Istanbul last November 10. 

Friday, March 31
Crvena Zvezda vs Unics Kazan (18:00 BST)

Crvena Zvezda will know before its game against Unics Kazan on Friday whether it needs only to win this match-up to clinch the eighth and final playoff berth. This will be the scenario if Darussafaka Dogus loses at Brose Bamberg on Thursday. Crvena Zvezda (15-13) is clinging on to the final playoff spot while Darussafaka Dogus (14-14) is just a game behind with two rounds remaining. A loss to Unics coupled with a Darussafaka Dogus win over Brose, however, will put the two teams in a do-or-die game in their Round 30 meeting next week. Crvena Zvezda lost at Kazan 62-65 in their Round 6 encounter last November 10.

Why watch Euroleague Live Streaming?

The Euroleague is the top-tier international professional basketball league in Europe. It is ranked second only to the NBA in popularity and competitiveness although several Euroleague clubs have beaten NBA teams in the past.

Many Euroleague products went on to have successful NBA careers like Drazen Petrovic, Vlade Divac, Toni Kukoc, Arvydas Sabonis, Andrei Kirilenko, Manu Ginobili and Luis Scola. In addition, many former NBA players found a home in the Euroleague. The long list includes former NBA MVP Bob McAdoo, slam dunk machine Dominique Wilkins, Alphonso Ford (whose name bears the Euroleague's top scorer award), Roy Tarpley, Anthony Parker and Tyus Edney.

The Euroleague has also produced great players who never played in the NBA like Dejan Bodiroga, Dino Meneghin, Manuel Raga and Sergei Belov. Head coaches who started their careers in the Euroleague before invading the NBA include Mike D'Antoni and David Blatt.

Current Teams and Format

Unlike in previous years where 24 teams take part in the regular season, only 16 teams are competing in the Euroleague this season.

The participants are A-license holders Anadolu Efes (Turkey), Baskonia (Spain), CSKA Moscow (Russia), Barcelona (Spain), Fenerbahce (Turkey), Maccabi Tel Aviv (Israel), Milano (Italy), Olympiacos (Greece), Panathinaikos (Greece), Real Madrid (Spain) and Zalgiris (Lithuania), Adriatic League champion Crvena Zvezda (Serbia), Eurocup champion Galatasaray (Turkey), UNICS Kazan (Russia), Darussafaka Dogus (Turkey) and Bundesliga champion Brose Baskets (Germany).

Regular Season
All teams will play a double round-robin using the home-and-away format for a total of 30 games per team. The top eight teams after the regular season will qualify for the best-of-five playoffs while the remaining eight clubs will be eliminated.

In this phase, the No. 1 seed will take on the No. 8 seed, the No. 2 seed will face the No. 7 seed, the third seeds will play the sixth seeds and the fourth-ranked club will battle the fifth-seeded team. The winners in the best-of-five series will qualify for the Final Four.

Final Four
Like in previous years, the Final Four will be a single knockout affair. The winners will proceed to the championship game. The Sinan Erdem Dome in Istanbul will host this season's Final Four.

Euroleague History

The Euroleague was established in 1958 as the FIBA European Champions Cup. It became the FIBA European League in 1991 and FIBA Euroleague in 1996.

Basketball's world governing body ran the premier league until 2000 when Euroleague Basketball, a private company based in Barcelona, entered the picture and formed a brand new Euroleague. Top teams Olympiacos, Kinder Bologna, Real Madrid, Barcelona, Tau Cerámica and Benetton Treviso joined the newly-established league while Panathinaikos, Maccabi Elite, CSKA Moscow and Efes Pilsen opted to remain with the FIBA-operated competition which was subsequently renamed FIBA SuproLeague.

Thus, the 2000-01 season saw two continental champions: Maccabi (Suproleague) and Kinder (Euroleague). The two leagues merged the following season with Euroleague Basketball taking over operations. 

In October 2015, FIBA attempted to regain control of the Euroleague by inviting the top clubs in the continent to join the newly-established Basketball Champions League. However, the clubs opted to remain in the Euroleague and the inaugural BCL ended up with lower-ranked teams that are neither competing in the Euroleague nor the second-tier EuroCup which is also operated by Euroleague Basketball.

Soviet clubs dominated the early years of the Euroleague before Real Madrid led by Clifford Luyk became a force in the 1960s. Italian club Varese starring the great Dino Meneghin was the most dominant team in the Euroleague in the 1970s. Italian clubs continued their dominance in the 1980s with Cantu, Roma and Milano winning titles. Yugoslav sides Cibona, Jugoplastika and Split also won titles in this decade. 

The 1990s saw the rise of Greek giants Panathinaikos and Olympiacos, which continued to win titles in the next two decades. CSKA, Maccabi and Barcelona also had triumphs in the 2000s. 

Real Madrid is the most successful club in the Euroleague with nine titles and eight runner-up finishes. CSKA Moscow is ranked second with seven titles followed by Maccabi Tel Aviv and Panathinaikos with six apiece. Varese has five titles that were all won in the 1970s while Olympiacos, Milano, ASK Riga and Split have three each.

CSKA Moscow is the defending champion after beating Fenerbahce 101-96 in overtime in the final at the Mercedes-Benz Arena in Berlin last May. Lokomotiv Kuban and Laboral Kutxa were the other teams that qualified for the Final Four.
