Koponen's team mirror's Blazers.

I don't know much about Italian basketball. Finnish basketball roundup from YLE reports "Petteri Koponen Unstoppable against Pepsi Caserta. I have attempted to translate some parts (may not be perfect). Koponen leads his team with 21 points in a 74-67 win over Caserta. Stats include 4/5 from two point range, 2/3 from beyond the arc, and 7/7 at the free throw line. Plus 3 assists, 3 steals, and 1 block. Koponen says after game. We have a balanced team, our strength is, anyone is able to answer on a given day. Nobody really has more shot attempts than anyone else. Today I had good position, and when the shots started to fall, it felt natural to take control. After the last couple Blazer wins, this last part sounded familiar to me. Last two Virtus games have come against Air Avellino and Caserta, with whom they are fighting for home playoff position. Win puts Virtus Bologna even with Caserta and Milano for 3rd place in Italian League. Koponen says second place is in reach - if they can win the next few home games.
