EuroLeague week three round-up (Tuesday matches): Žalgiris win three in a row

🎯 It’s been a shaky PL start in defense for TAA, but in passing he ranks:

🔺 1st – passes through the back line (97)
🔺 3rd – passes into final third (184)
🔺 5th – passes leading to shot (20)
🔺 7th – pressured passes

Is Southgate right not to include him for #ENGGER?

#LFC

Overall, the #Packers rank just 18th for yards gained per pass completion, and Rodgers has 4 throw aways. Brady is 8-34 on +10 yard attempts, and 3-11 on +20 yard attempts for #Buccaneers.

Whether it’s Brady’s O-Line, or Rodgers’ receivers; these QBs have trust issues right now.

Tua ➡️ Tyreek

This deep middle 48-yard TD pass brought the #Dolphins within one score of the Ravens in Week 2. It’s currently the 2nd-most improbable completion (20.7% chance) so far in the #NFL.

Another 👀 at @cheetah’s first TD as a 🐬!

#MiamiDolphins and #BuffaloBills both currently average 6.7 yards per play, tied (also with the Eagles and Chiefs) for 2nd in the #NFL after Week 2.

Buffalo just edges Miami in 1st downs (46-45) and drive-scoring rate (52.4%-47.4%).

Expect a high-scoring game. ⚡️

📉 The #Bengals rank 31st in yards per play (4.3) in the #NFL after two weeks. They dropped 10 spots in our Power Rankings.

Burrow may have been sacked 13 times so far, but the #Jets rank 28th for QB pressures (12). Bounce back for the Bengals?

Žalgiris table-toppers

Lithuanian side Žalgiris made it three wins out of three in the EuroLeague as they beat Crvena Zvezda 75-69 in Belgrade.

Žalgiris have now won three successive away matches as they’ve yet to play at home so far this season.

It was level after the first quarter at 19-19 the Lithuanian champions then took a six-point lead into half-time.

With a quarter of the match remaining, Žalgiris led by just two points and saw out the win with Lukas Lekavicius coming off the bench to score 16 important points. Joffrey Lauvergne also contributed with 12 points and eight assists.

Lekavicius quotes

Lekavicius was pleased with his side’s display, and how they dealt with a tough opponent.

He said: “Like I said at half-time they will come back with double energy like we saw, but we responded well and we won the game.

Our main goal was to play physically because we know this team very well and they play physically every year. The EuroLeague is like that, every game is like a final to us. We are a small team and we’re trying to win every game.”

Efes off the mark

Meanwhile, in the other two matches to be played on Tuesday, Anadolu Efes registered their first win of the season against Alba Berlin 93-72.

Tibor Pleiß scored 23 points for the Turkish side, succeeding with 8 out of his 10 two-point attempts and scoring all seven of his free-throws. He also managed six rebounds. It was his highest ever score in an Efes shirt.

Also, Efes made 28 assists in their win, the highest by any team this season in the EuroLeague. They also limited Alba to just one field goal in the first five minutes. Alba Berlin are bottom of the table, without a win this season.

Barcelona win

Barcelona bounced back with a win after last week’s defeat against Zenit, beating Valencia 71-66 at La Fonteta. Rolando Šmits top-scored for Barcelona with a career-best 15 points. The match turned with 16 points scored by Barcelona without reply, as they went 44-43 down to 59-44 up.
