ZEN vs MOS Dream11: The Finals of the Russian Basketball League are here and we have seen a great series so far. In this vital Game 4, the Zenit St Petersburg will host the CSKA Moscow. Zenit clinched a must-win game as they nabbed a 93:79 win against Moscow as Jordan Mickey nailed a 23-points night. Moscow still holds the major cards as they need to win one out of the next two games and will once again enter as the favorites here. Can Zenit force a Game 5 after forcing a Game 4?

Venue: Sibur Arena
Zenit needs to do better
After being outmatched in terms of free throws in the first two games, Zenit did a great of drawing even and made 18 of them, a similar number to the CSKA Moscow. The defense of Zenit was also turned on and they forced outside shots from Moscow, a team that shot just 31% from inside the three-point line. In contrast, Zenit made ten more shots from inside the arc, on a brilliant 67%. Moscow made two more threes on a better percentage than Zenit but the latter pincered out a brilliant inside game.
Alexey Shved was unable to get going and shot just 2/11 in the last game and he is a big part of the Moscow offense. On the other hand, after a relatively thin stretch, Jordan Mickey did get going and made 9/15 shots to headline the Zenit offense. Moscow’s Center Nikolina Multinov had another strong scoring and rebounding game but apart from him, no other player was either efficient or high-yielding. Sergey Karasev has given quality production in the last two games for the Zenit.
NBA Scores, Fantasy Basketball Top Picks
Middle player Milutinov is an incredible inside player with a lot of size and he can provide both paint production and rebounds. I expect a 15-21 points and 10-16 rebounds range. He can be selected as a Star/Pro Player in the Dream 11 NBA Fantasy scenario.
Jordan Loyd (ZEN)
Jordan is an elite playmaker who can also be a big-time scorer and he can be a big difference-maker. I expect a 10-15 points and 7-10 assists range.
