Guerreros from Bogot with one of the best records in the history of the Colombian Federation Cup, 30 victories and just 5 losses and Bukaros from Bucaramanga with a 24 11 record start on next Friday November 9 the final playoff of the Federation Cup.
Both teams sweeped in the semifinal playoff and are arriving to the final with all their players available, the series are to 7 games starting in Bogot and will be 2-3-2, with the game 5 if necessary in Bucaramanga and games 6 a 7 if necessary in Bogot.
Guerreros is the main favourite, the Bogotas team builded the most powerfull roster in the history of the Cup, leaded by the main Colombian stars: Stalin Ortiz and Juan Diego Tello, both are international level players, but also had a solid group of americans : Rashad Bell, Shawn Malloy and Courtney Nelson, Bell has been the second scorer of the team and Malloy the rebounding and shot blocking leader, Nelson comes from the bench in the second squad, Guerreros found this year in Gianlucca Bacci a solid point guard to be starter.
The Guerreros first offensive wheapon is Stalin Ortiz, when hes hot is almost unstoppable, Ortiz arrives healthy and fresh to finals thanks to the deep roster of the team, Tello provides talent and versatility on the wing and is also a powerfull rebounder, Bacci and Aragon are the prime defensive players of the team, this team is very focused on the defense, this is the main belief of the Guerreros coach Yesid Rivero.
Bukaros has an experienced roster, Cory Bradford, Miguel Marriaga, Cesar Silva and Richard Jetter are their main perfomers, but also with the arrival of Jeffrei Addai the team found a reliable and quick point guard.
Bukaros main strength is the long range shooting in with Richard Jetter is the biggest gun, Jetter is having a solid season with Bukaros, Miguel Marriaga is playing also at his best level, the big guy is feeded by his teammates in the pick and roll offense, Marriaga is also the top rebounder of the team, Bradford is the spark of the team always tyring to find a open view to the Basket can be also the prime offensive option of Bukaros, Cesar Silva is always dangerous, the bear can hurt from downtown or going hard inside in the penetration.
Teams Comparission:
Guards:
Guerreros starters are Bacci and Ortiz, with them the team can put pressure on the ball forcing turnovers and run the fastbreak, Ortiz is the best scorer of the team, but Bacci has proven than he can close games in the clutch.
Bukaros Addai and Bradford are a good combo, very similar to the Guerreros pair, Bradford has been finalist in Colombia before.
Forwards:
Guerreros Tello and Bell are the most versatile duo of forwards in the league, both can create mismatches with his quickness or size and can guard smaller opponents, Tello is the second best rebounder of the team, Bell the second scorer.
Bukaros has Jetter as usual starter and has been using John Velez in the last game, Jetter is a great shooter but can face some problems guarding bigger opponents, while Velez is a good defender and rebounder but limited in the offensive.
Centers:
Guerreros Shawn Malloy has been the best rebounder and shotblocker of the team and a key player in defense, in offensive Malloy is not getting to many touches but he can score in the paint.
Bukaros Miguel Marriaga is a real wheapon in the offensive and a solid rebounder, Marriaga is one main piece of the Bukaros strategy.
Bench:
Guerreros bench is deep Pineda, Aragon, Barrios, Romero, Pea, Nelson and Perez all the should be starters in any other team, Aragon is a real deal in defense and offense , the team had the deepest bech in the league.
Bukaros bech is not deep as the Guerreros, but has the best sixth man of the league Cesar Silva, a luxury bench player, also has experience and size with Hernandez, Cortes and Fernandez.

Prognosis, Guerreros is deeper and more talented in the forwards, has leaded the cup all the season, and is a wide favourite, Guerreros could win the cup in 5 games.
