1. SPURS 96 FENERBAHCE 90 - Last season, EUROJOHNBBALL wrote a piece that the deepest squads in the Euroleague could hang with NBA squads and might even be the favorites to win what looked to be the weakest Atlantic division in NBA history and Turkish power Fenerbahce was one of the Euroleague teams named. Gone from the 2013-14 Fenerbahce squad are Bojan Bogdanovic to the NBA Nets, Linas Kleiza and Bo McCalebb, but facing the NBA champion San Antonio Spurs today, Fenerbahce still had big men Oguz Savas and Luka Zoric and Nemanja Bjelica and also added guards Andrew Goudelock and Ricky Hickman along with guard Bogdan Bogdanovic and PF Jan Vesely and though Nemanja Bjelica was only 1-7 on FG, 0-4(3PT), 4-4 FT, 6 points and Bogdan Bogdanovic was only 2-8 FG's 1-4(3PT), 5 points, former LA Lakers guard Anrew Goudelock was on fire with his new Turkish squad, going for 30 points, on 12-22 FG's, 4-8(3PT), 2-2 FT and got help from Turkish center Oguz Savas 15 points 7-8 FG and Croatian center Luka Zoric 11 points 7 rebounds, but the lack of scoring by the other perimeter players and the 10-11 FT's compared to 30-37 for the Spurs made it tough for the Euroleague squad to hand the NBA champs back to back defeats in Europe.

The Spurs were mad about losing to ALBA Berlin, but Fenerbahce hanging with the NBA champs after a loss in Berlin, shows what EUROJOHNBBALL wrote in the piece last year is not that crazy, top Euroleague teams are closer to NBA teams than most NBA fans and NBA media members think.  After losing to ALBA and playing big minutes in their first preseason game, the Spurs future Hall of Fame trio of, Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili again played big minutes, as they did not want to lose two straight to NON-NBA TEAMS.

Tim Duncan was hot early in the game and led the way with 23 points in 35 minutes, on 9-13 FG, 5-5 FT, 7 rebounds and Tony Parker took over in the 3rd quarter of a tight one point game, scoring 22 points in 36 minutes, 7 assists, 7 rebounds, while Manu Ginobili followed with 12 points in 29 minutes.  The Spurs will take the hard fought win, but the older players probably did not want to play such big minutes so early in back to back games versus Euroleague teams.   Two great coaches in Gregg Popovich and Zeljko Obradovic faced each other in the game.  Zeljko Obradovic has won EIGHT Euroleague titles as a coach and some think, that might mean a future NBA job, but his in the face of players style and sometimes grabbing players style, would not FLY in the NBA.   If Obradovic can get good shooting from Bogdanovic and Bjelica in Euroleague play, to go along with his other players, he could be in the mix for a Ninth Euroleague title, if he can get to the Final Four.    If Bogdan Bogdanovic and Nemanja Bjelica could have hit their usual shots today versus the Spurs, it could have been another interesting ending, the way Goudelock was shooting.

1. FC Barcelona 87 Laboral Kutxa 65 - The 2013-14 Spanish ACB league champions win in week one of the new season, as 21 year old Spanish SG Alex Abrines, showed his offensive skills, that got him drafted by the Oklahoma City Thunder with the 32nd pick in the 2013 NBA draft, with Abrines going 7-7 on FG's and making 4-4 from 3 point land, leading the way with 18 points and was followed by Brazilian PG Marcelinho Huertas with 13 points and veteran Spanish SG Juan Carlos Navarro also added 13 points, making 3-3 from 3 point land.

-      PANATHINAIKOS DEFEAT OLYMPIACOS IN GREEK CUP ON LATE SECOND DUNK

1. Panathinaikos 77 Olympiacos 76 - In what is the biggest rivalry in all of European basketball, two European basketball powers played in an empty OAKA building, due to past incidents, that would make most USA sports events look like a Golf or Tennis type of crowd, compared to what Panathinaikos and Olympiacos players had to go through, DODGING and DARTING Flares and small metal objects in past Greek Cup games and Greek A1 championship games and due to the past events, the fans missed a great Greek Cup game.

Olympiacos was up 70-60 with five minutes left, but Dimitris Diamantidis came up clutch again, sticking a top of the key 3 pointer, to tie the game up at 75-75, then after Kostas Sloukas hit a FT to put Olympiacos up 76-75, with six seconds left, Diamantidis found new Center Esteban Batista open for a dunk to win the game for Panathinaikos, as Olympiacos could not get revenge for the Greek Finals from last year and though 32 year old Vassilis Spanoulis had the summer off from the Greek national team, it was again the 34 year old Diamantidis who came up big, to again bring up the question, who is the best European PG of the last decade in Europe.

Panathinaikos got a big game from Greek combo-guard Nikos Pappas with 19 points and was followed by Esteban Batista with 12 points, SF Vladimir Jankovic added 11 points, while Diamantidis had 8 points, 5 assists.  Olympiacos was led by SG Matt Lojeski with 16 points, PF Georgios Printezis had 13 points, while Vassilis Spanoulis added 12 points.    FULL GAME BOX SCORE

-                ALBA BERLIN UPSET NBA CHAMPION SPURS AT THE BUZZER IN GERMANY

1. ALBA Berlin 94 Spurs 93 - EUROJOHNBBALL wrote a piece last season, that the top five teams in the Euroleague had a shot of winning the weak Atlantic division in the Eastern conference of the NBA, but most who cover the NBA, brushed the thought off as ridiculous. The top five teams with enough depth in the Euroleague to think of winning the Atlantic division in the 2013-14 season, were Real Madrid, Olympiacos, Fenerbahce, FC Barcelona and CSKA Moscow, Greek power Panathinaikos could also compete at an NBA level, but today ALBA Berlin, who sort of reminds of the 2013-2014 Maccabi Tel Aviv Euroleague championship squad that got hot at the right time and upset Real Madrid and CSKA Moscow in one and done knockout games to win the title, upset the NBA champion San Antonio Spurs with a 94-93 win.  ALBA Berlin does not have the depth of the other Euroleague squads, or big name European player,  but today versus the Spurs, they showed some Euroleague teams can hang with NBA squads. This was the eleventh time a Euroleague team beat an NBA team in the Euroleague versus NBA preseason battle.

Former Xavier PF Jamel McLean was the hero for ALBA, hitting a 16 foot tear drop floater to win the game, as he led ALBA with 18 points, 10 rebounds, on 6-9 FG, 6-7 FT and was followed by former Clemson PG Cliff Hammonds with 15 points and former Belmont University PG Alex Renfroe with 15 points, while former Villanova SG Reggie Redding added 12 points and Croatian center Leon Radosevic 5 poits, 8 rebounds and Croatian PF Marko Banic 6 points in the win.

To be fair to the Spurs, this was their first preseason game, while ALBA has stronger legs, already playing two games in German BBL regular season, as the Spurs were led by PG Tony Parker with 28 points in 35 minutes, on 8-13 FG, 1-3(3PT), 11-13 FT and was followed by Tim Duncan and Kawhi Leonard with 14 points apiece, but this was the ALBA Berlin SUPER BOWL and the American players, that did not get drafted to the NBA, but make no mistake, the Spurs were trying to win this game, but as shown ten other times in the past decade, NBA and Euroleague teams are closer than NBA media and fans give them credit for, the top five Euroleague teams could compete at an NBA level every year, as this ALBA Berlin squad showed, that is not even close to a top five Euroleague squad this season.
