NAN Vs GCN Fantasy Team Overview, Match Centre And Probable Playing 5: Another defeat on the spin sees Nanterre run their race in the ongoing edition of the league.
Barring their season opening win in the Eurocup, absolutely nothing has worked in Nanterre’s favour in this edition of the showpiece competition. With four successive defeats ever since that defeat, the club finds itself languishing in an agonising 5th place.
Despite their horrid form, the club still finds itself alive in the fracas for a top 4 finish. Just the one win behind breaching the coveted top 4 slots, Nanterre know today’s clash is a must win one, a fixture where a defeat could end up bringing their soiree to a thudding culmination.
Unfortunately for Nanterre, the identity of the opposition today doesn’t augur well for them. Up against second placed Gran Canaria, this Group D tie looks another foregone defeat for Nanterre.

If there’s any player capable of registering a win against Gran Canaria today, its Nanterre’s Chris Warren. The 14 points, 3 dimes and 5 rebounds he had in the bygone contest were a testament of his ability to carry out the club’s attacking gameplan to perfection.
Up against one of the worst defensive setups in the league, Tomas Dimas can end up going on a rampage for Gran Canaria today. He dropped 17 points in his previous tie, performance which saw him convert his field points with a high conversion rate.
Joining up with him for the upcoming clash is Frankie Ferrari who helped himself to 9 points in the same encounter.
Bursting onto the stage with a sensational 25 point showing in the same clash, Stan Okoye was responsible for guiding the team to a pulsating triumph on the day.
We also have Nanterre’s leading scorer from their previous showdown, Ivan Fevrier make a foray into our framework. The only shining light in an otherwise dismal display, his clean brand of sending down the windmills and reverse scoops saw him pull off 23 points.
Beqa Burjanadze’s versatile skill set saw him accrue 7 points and 5 boards in the scrimmage, a performance which saw him make his presence felt in both the facets of the side’s gameplan.
The only Gran Canaria centre to register a double-double in the club’s last matchup, Matt Costello transpired his way a wholesome display. From the first minute to the tailend of the game, he unnervingly gave it his all to pull off 16 points and 10 boards.
The versatile and tenacious Brian Conklin meanwhile represents us from Nanterre courtesy of his 12 points and 6 rebounds.
Okoye’s well rounded and complete display sees him earn the role of our star player while Matt is the pro player.
