April 26, 2021 - Game 1

Before the end of this week, we will have a new 7DAYS EuroCup champion. The best-of-three finals series starts on Tuesday with AS Monaco hosting UNICS Kazan before the two teams travel to Russia for Game 2 on Friday - and a potential Game 3 on Sunday. The format in this series will be like none before since Monaco and UNICS agreed to change the order of how they will host games due to national restrictions concerning the COIVD-19 pandemic. Monaco will host Game 1 on Tuesday before UNICS uses its home-court advantage to host Games 2 and 3. UNICS earned home-court advantage by virtue of a point-difference that was 8 better than Monaco's in the Top 16, proving once again how every game matters. UNICS has a 10-1 home record this season with its only loss coming in overtime at the hands of Joventut Badalona in Round 5 of the regular season. Interestingly, home-court advantage has not proved to be crucial since the introduction of the best-of-three series format. Read more here.
