Maccabi Tel Aviv
Maccabi had 6 wins and only 2 defeats after 8 games, and then the decline in form began, which resulted in as many as 4 defeats in the last 5 games. Maccabi currently occupies an eighth place on the table, and after 13 matches they have 7 wins and 6 losses. So far, they have scored 1,019 and received 994 points, which means that they play matches with 154.9 points on average.
So far, they have played 6 matches at home, in which they have won 5 and lost 1. At home, they play matches with about 149 points on average, but it should be mentioned that so far they have mostly played with very defensively oriented teams. They are not in the best shape, which is confirmed by the fact that they have recorded as many as 4 defeats in the last 5 matches.
CSKA was better in the uncertain ending with 74:73, and then they were on the field at home with Monaco with 95:84. A series of matches on the visiting fields followed, in which they were defeated all three times. Olympiacos was better with 90:73, Alba with 91:86, and in the last match Real Madrid with 72:70. Winning this match is imperative, having in mind the ambitions of the club from Tel Aviv.

Unics have the same score as Maccabi, but due to a better basket, they are in the seventh position on the table. As far as efficiency is concerned, they have scored 986 and received 946 points so far, which gives us the data that they have played matches with 148.6 points on average so far this season.
So far, they have played 5 away matches in which they scored 363 and received 386 points, which means that they play games with 149.8 points on average on the away fields. Until the last round, Unics was in a series of four consecutive victories, but the Olympiacos team made an effort to break that series. After the victory in Athens over the team of Panathinaikos 74:72, at home, they declassified Milan with the result 97:71. The victory against Alba followed with 85:71, and they celebrated with a great game in Belgrade against Crvena Zvezda with 98:78.
In the last round, they lost at home to Olympiacos after overtime, with a score of 84:87. UNICS has finally entered the long-awaited shooter rhythm, and we saw in the matches against Crvena Zvezda and Alba that the game in a faster rhythm suits them very well.

These two teams have played a total of four matches in the Euroleague so far, and both teams have two victories. Their mutual duels were mostly with a smaller number of points scored, but bearing in mind that a few years ago were completely different circumstances, this time we will not pay too much attention to tradition
Maccabi Tel Aviv vs. UNICS Kazan Prediction
Maccabi is in a results crisis as they have lost the last three matches played in the Euroleague, and the biggest problem of the team in those matches were turnovers (as much as 13.7 per match). Maccabi is the team with the highest number of shots in the Euroleague for two points (21.4 per match), while UNICS is the team that allows opponents about 55% of successful shots for two points.
With that in mind, Maccabi needs to gain an advantage under the hoop, and we have to agree that Žižić, Reynolds, and Williams are players who can make a difference on the field. It should be mentioned that Maccabi this season allows opponents about 9 shots for 3 points, which corresponds to the UNICS team, which has several great shooters for 3 points (Canaan, Hezonja, Spissu). We expect a very offensive approach from Maccabi players and one open match at a faster pace, and having in mind that both teams have great shooters in their ranks, points in this match, in our opinion, will not be missed.
Prediction: Over 152.5 points
