CSU Asesoft Ploiesti - CSA Steaua Turabo Bucharest series preview - Apr 28, 2011

  follow us on Facebook Twitter

The day of Thursday, 28th of April is the day when the semifinals of the 2010-2011 Romanian championship semifinals start. The teams to fight for the two places in the big final are the best four teams from the last season. In the semifinals, CSU Asesoft Ploiesti will meet BC Steaua Turabo Bucuresti, while U Cluj faces Gaz Metan Medias. The semifinals will be played best of 5 games, or the first team to win 3 matches will advance to the final. Ploiesti and Cluj will have the home court advantage, an advantage which could be crucial.
The first semifinal brings face to face Ploiesti and Steaua. These two teams met three times this season: two times in the regular season and once in the Cups semifinals. The score in these meetings is 2-1 for Steaua, Ploiesti having won the first meeting, 66-53 at home ground, while Steaua has won the match from the regular season played in Bucharest, 93-92, after two periods of overtime. Moreover, Steaua has won 75-60, in the Cups semifinal played in Mures.
In the offense, Ploiesti looks better: theyve score 2593 points in 30 matches, which means 86.43 points per game, while Steaua scored 2488 points, which means an average of 82.93 points per match. But there are also other factors which influence the offensive. Catalin Burlacu (210-C-77, agency: Court Side) leads the field for Ploiesti in points scored, having an average of 17.3 points per game, while Virgil Stanescu (207-C/F-77, agency: Interperformances, college: S.Alabama), the basket-getter of Steaua, has an average of 13.9 points per game. Ploiesti leads the field also at the sharp-shooters: Qarraan Calhoun (203-F-86, agency: Hart Sports Mngm, college: Houston) scored 47.2% of the 3-point shots hes made, while Joshua Jackson (188-G-85, agency: Global Sports Plaza, college: Warner Pacific), Steauas best sharpshooter, has made 39% of the shots from more than 6.60 m away from the rim. If one of the matches will be a close one, and the players will have to shoot free thorws, Steaua may benefit from this, as Joshua Jackson has made 88.7% of the free throws, while Levente Szijarto (192-G/F-83, agency: Court Side) has made 73.5%, having the best percentage from Ploiesti. Another important aspect of the offensive play is represented by the offensive rebounds. Here again Steaua has the better stats, with Virgil Stanescu having made 2.2 offensive boards per game, while Qarraan Calhoun is the best offensive robunder for Ploiesti, with 1.8 per match. Regarding the assists, Ploiestis point guard, one of the best point guards from Romania, has an average of 5 assists per game, with center Catalin Burlacu with another 2.4 assists per game. On the other hand, Ivan Tomeljak (194-G-79), one of Steauas point guards, has 3.2 assists per game, with Andrei Mandache (190-G-87, agency: Global Sports Plaza), the starting five point guard having an average of 2.4 assists per game. Another important aspect of the offense is the turnovers. Steaua got the most turnovers done by its center, Virgil Stanescu, who lost 2.6 balls per match, while the main responsible for the lost balls at Ploiesti is point guard Adrian Blidaru (182-G-85), who practically erases the advantage brought by his assists, having 5.0 turnovers per match. As a result, it looks like things are pretty tied in the offense, with a small plus for Steaua.
In the defense things look interesting as well. Ploiesti has the better odds according to the defensive rebounds, with Catalin Burlacu having caught 6.1 missed shots of the opponents per game, while Virgil Carutasu (204-C-76) of Steaua, who the previous season had the highest average of rebounds per match, has 5.3 defensive boards per match. Regarding the aggressive defenses, both teams centers, Catalin Burlacu have made 3.5 fouls per match, Virgil Stanescu having commited 3.4 personal mistakes per match. Virgil Carutasu has the highest average of Steaua in what is concerning the blocks, with 0.8 bloked shot per match, while on the other side, Catalin Burlacu has 0.8 blocks per game also. As it seems, it will be a quite balanced series, but the fact that they have the home court advantage, may prove crucial for Ploiesti.
