The Lebanese Basketball League playoffs return this weekend with title favorites Champville hosting Riyadi Sunday in titanic semis. The pair boast the two most potent offenses in the league heading into Game 1 in Dik al-Mehdi, with Riyadi averaging two points less than Champville's 91 points per game.Fouad Abou Chakra's miserly side has allowed just 73 points a game including the playoffs, while Riyadi (80 points) have struggled to clamp down at the back.Add in Khatib's vast playmaking skills -- the 39-year-old is averaging upward of five assists per game -- and Riyadi's middling defense has a gargantuan task in nullifying Champville's firepower.
