Matt Costello is the big news in Lithuania’s game against Zalgiris Kaunas, a rival who has recently signed Baskonia player Zoran Dragic. Inside has not yet debuted with Neven Spahija on the bench due to knee discomfort. Although he has wanted to force, it has been the Croatian coach himself who has preferred to pull other troops such as Enoch or Nnoko. This week of break due to the commitments of the national teams has been good for him to recover and get sensations. The American got on the plane to the Baltic Republic and will play against the greens.
Those still out due to injury are Sander Raieste and Alec Peters. The first underwent meniscus surgery in summer and was expected in November. That is why the temporary Álex Barrera was signed, who barely has a leading role. When he began to train seriously, he felt discomfort in the area and went under the knife again to clean that part of the joint again. He also had meniscus surgery, in Chicago, the American Alec Peters. This player is really missed for his versatility within the zone.
Neven Spahija spoke about the match before taking the private charter at the Vitoria-Foronda airport. “I have not come across a lazy or lazy team. I know that we have to improve in attack and be tougher in defense. We must not allow easy points or that rivals make us free trays. I think we will use Matt Costello rather than 4 ”, assured the coach. “It has been a good week to get to know each other better and to be able to prepare for the games. We are a good team and we have to prove it. Our game has to be, above all, to defend well, rebound and then run, ”added Italian outside Simone Fontecchio.
