The start of the match in Monaco is on Thursday at 20:00.

Next week, the regular season for Zalgiris will end with a match against Real Madrid.

In order for the Kaunas team to enter the top ten, two victories of Zalgiris themselves are necessary and more than one favorable result of other teams is needed, for example, the victory of “Fenerbahçe” led by Šarūnas Jasikevicius against the direct competitor of “Zalgiris” Anadolu Efes.

Before the trip to Monaco, “Žalgiris” strategist Andrea Trinchieri was happy that the team still has hopes of fighting for a place in the top ten at this stage of the season.

“Last season’s Final Four team full of talent awaits. I always want to talk about good things. A couple of months ago we thought we had hope and were in contention for the playoffs.

We’ve had a good run in the last few games these weeks. It’s amazing, it’s a really big deal.

We know how difficult the match is, we will have to show the best possible game both in attack and defense, in terms of concentration, physicality, emotional balance, cool heads.

We are driven forward and pressured in a good way by our achievements in the last few weeks”, said A. Trinchieri.

“I don’t go into all the possible scenarios, I don’t care. 1 percent or 0.1 percent an opportunity is better than nothing,” noted the strategist, not allowing the journalist to finish the question about the situation in the standings in the fight for the 9-10 positions.

“My team proved that they can fight, play their best game. It’s amazing we’re still alive in this race.

Those numbers and math are someone else’s job. I know you have to do it, but definitely not me. Can I change the numbers? I can’t control them, I don’t waste my energy on that,” the Italian noted.

Mike James is the most useful and productive player in Monaco, scoring 18.8 points per game and recording 20.1 utility points.

“Mike has the best qualities, the best package of skills to play the best basketball in the EuroLeague. I said that a few years ago, not when he became the all-time leading scorer in the EuroLeague.

He has nothing to prove to me, I know how good he is. Accomplishments are part of this game, that’s fine, but it doesn’t change how he plays or how good he is on the floor. There are many NBA Hall of Famers who do not hold any title. Can we say they’re not that good because they don’t have a title?

Trophies are not for players, but for clubs and organizations. I believe Mr. James is one of the best. First, second or third, it’s very subjective. His package is the best, he can do everything”, said A. Trinchieri about the Monaco leader, who did not yet have specific information about Rolando Šmitas, who is recovering from an injury.

“He’s trying to get through the pain. I don’t know (about him), we’ll see, the decision will be made before the match”, said the “Žalgiris” captain about the Latvian.

“Monaco” from January 19. won 10 and had just one defeat. Žalgiris should be inspired by the 98:80 victory of Olimpia Milan in Monaco on March 20, this is the only failure of Saša Obradović’s students in the home arena in the second round.
