Status, dynamics, form and the significance of results are the criteria for ranking the 18 teams.
No. 18 ZENIT ST PETERSBURG
Previous ranking: 14 (-4)
At home: 0-5
Six defeats in a row, no home wins, fourth-worst offense, fourth-worst defense and the worst point differential (minus-8.6)… The explanation as to why Zenit hasn’t climbed above 14th place (Round 5) and why the last four rounds have kept it pegged in the 18 spot is simple. The average of 12 offensive rebounds (first, together with Baskonia) is the best statistic Zenit has to show, but it shoots 43.6% from the field (fourth-worst FG%) and concedes almost as many offensive boards (second-highest average with 11.9).
