Two squads sitting on the bottom four places of the Euroleague Basketball are clashing in the 23rd round of action, when the fourth-worse Lithuanian champions Zalgiris Kaunas (8-14), who have won only once in their last 8 games, are hosting the second-worse Buducnost (6-16), who are looking to end their current small losing streak.

Zalgiris Kaunas have an 8-14 record so far this season and are currently tied with Khimki in the 13th place of the league. They have lost seven of their last eight games and in their latest matchup they lost on the road against Barcelona with a 78-72 score. They are led in scoring by Brandon Davies with 14 ppg, adding a team high 5.5 boards per game. He is followed by Nate Wolters with 12.2 ppg, 3.3 boards and a team high 4.6 dimes per game, while Aaron White adds 8.8 ppg and 4.6 boards.
Buducnost have a 6-16 record so far this season and are currently tied with Gran Canaria in the second to last place of the league. They have back-to-back losses and in their last game they lost at home against Khimki with a 90-98 score. They are led in scoring by Noris Cole with 18.9 ppg, adding a team high 5.1 dimes per game. He is followed by Goga Bitadze with 13.1 ppg and a team high 6.6 boards per game, while Earl Clark adds 12 ppg and 3.4 boards per game.
In their previous meeting earlier this season Zalgiris won on the road with a 60-72 score. Zalgiris have a 4-7 home record so far, while Buducnost are 0-10 on the road. Zalgiris are better both offensively, scoring 77.6 ppg to Buducnost’s 74.5 and defensively, allowing 79.6 ppg to Buducnost’s 84.4. They also have a better field goal percentage (48.4% to 44.9%), while Buducnost have a better 3-point percentage (38.2% to 37.6%). Zalgiris are better in dimes made (17.3 to 14.5) and in boards grabbed (29.3 to 28), while Buducnost are better in turnovers committed (10.8 to 12.7).
