Both Movistar Estudiantes and Herbalife Gran Canaria have managed to win just one out of their four encounters at the Liga ACB this season. Estudiantes are at the 13th position, while Gran Canaria are at the 18th place out of 19 teams. Last season, Gran Canaria had an average 11th place finish, ending the year with 11 wins and 11 losses, while Estudiantes ended in last place with just five wins from their 23 games.
Movistar Estudiantes lost their first game to Basquet Manresa with a slim margin of 4 points, making 84 points to Manresa's 88. They suffered a heavy loss to UCAM Murcia in their next match, going down 80-93. In their third encounter against Saski Baskonia, Movistar Estudiantes bounced back well, but lost out in the last moment by a difference of just 2 points.
The team finally seems to have found its footing, winning a close game against Montakit Fuenlabrada 82-81 on Sunday. They will now hope to capitalize on this winning streak.
Meanwhile, Gran Canaria won their first encounter against Bilbao Basket, winning 107-102. However, they failed to keep the momentum going, and lost their next three games on the trot, to Burgos, Zaragoza and Real Madrid. The huge margins of loss have pushed Gran Canaria further down the table, and they will need to pull off something quickly to get back into contention for the finals.
