For the first time in 10 years, Cholet managed to qualify for the French League playoffs. They finished the regular season in eighth place, which crossed them with Asvel in the quarterfinals. In the first game played on Tuesday night, they shocked the opponent in Villeurbanne and now only one win separates them from reaching the semifinals. There are some interesting players in the team who can play great. Starting point guard Dominic Artis stands out as the top scorer on the team, while D.J. Hogg, O.D. Anosike and youngster Yoan Makoundou are players who should definitely be paid attention to in this game. Cholet will be an outsider because no one could have guessed that they could eliminate Asvel, but the pressure will be on the opponent, which is a great chance to take advantage of what was offered to them. In the last month, Cholet has managed to beat opponents like Monaco and Metropolitans at home, which speaks enough about what they are capable of and in how good form they are at the moment.

The best French basketball player of all time Tony Parker bought 20% of Asvel in 2009, and in 2017 he took over the complete management of this club. From that moment on, Asvel became the most serious club in France and they soon became a permanent member of the Euroleague after receiving a license to participate in that competition. They have won the title in the last two editions of the domestic championship, but they are now one step away from being eliminated in the quarterfinals. The head coach of this team for the last three years is T.J. Parker, Tony Parker’s brother and often he stood out as Asvel’s weakest link. There are rumors that he will not be the coach for next season, and that is a very probable scenario if they lose in this game, regardless of the fact that his brother owns the club. This season, by far the best player on the team was Elie Okobo, the former Phoenix Suns player. Several Euroleague clubs showed interest to sign Okobo for next season, while Chris Jones also left a good impression. Victor Wembanyama has the potential to be one of the superstars in the NBA league and with a team like this, Asvel must not allow to be eliminated at this stage of the competition.
