VTB United League. Zenit vs Loko Kuban. Preview

On April 4, Zenit in St. Petersburg will play against Krasnodar Lokomotiv Kuban in the VTB United League regular season.

The Krasnodar team needs to win every game to have home court advantage in the first round of the playoffs. A 4-game winning streak allows them to hope for such a result. Zenit, in theory, can finish the regular season in first and second places, and even in third place, therefore it is also only interested in winning.

Quote

Denis Zakharov, Zenit BC Guard:

Loko plays fast, aggressive basketball. There are two absolute leaders – McCollum and Motley, we will try to restrain them as much as possible. Plus, they have the whole team – throwing and running. We prepared and sorted out, ready to show our best basketball.
