-      LOADED REAL MADRID ROSTER STOP SPANOULIS TO WIN EUROLEAGUE TITLE

1. Real Madrid 78 Olympiacos 59 - The magic from 32 year old Greek PG Vassilis Spanoulis was not there in the title game, as the 3 time EL champion and EL Final Four MVP was taken out of the game early, with Real Madrid keeping two players on Spanoulis all game, as he worked the high pick and roll, not giving him room like CSKA Moscow did in the Semis with 3 minutes left, as CSKA let the legend of the older Spanoulis grow, as he beat the higher budget salaries of the CSKA Moscow roster, to send Olympiacos to another title game, but it was not to be versus Real Madrid on their homecourt.   Spanoulis played 31 minutes and had just 3 points, on 1-5 FG, 0-4(3PT), 1-4 FT, 3 assists, 4 TO's, as being the man on the perimeter all these years, might have caught up to the Greek legend and going up against another high budget roster in Real Madrid that has double the salary of Olympiacos, just as CSKA Moscow and FC Barcelona had in earlier battles in their quest for their 3rd EL Title in 4 years, was too much to overcome and Real Madrid finally won their first Euroleague title since 1995, after being in the 2013 title game and losing to Olympiacos and Spanoulis and Maccabbi Tel aviv in 2014.

Real Madrid was loaded the past two seasons, but what might have got them over the hump, was losing the talented offensive scorer Nikola Mirotic to the NBA this year and grabbing more defensive minded and tougher inside players, 35 year old Andres Nocioni and Mexican Center Gustavo Ayon, as Real Madrid grabbed Ayon over the San Antonio Spurs, who also wanted Ayon.   Gustavo Ayon led Real Madrid in the Semis versus Fenerbahce with 18 tough inside points and Andres Nocioni had 12 points and 6 rebounds and after Ayon got into foul trouble early versus Olympiacos in the final today, it was Nocioni bringing energy on defense and clutch shots when Olympiacos was getting close, that earned the Argentine the 2015 Final four MVP with 12 points in 22 minutes, on 3-6 FG, 2-3(3PT), 4-4 FT, 7 rebounds, 2 blocked shots and 1 steal.       Lithuanian PF Jonas Maciulis also did a great job for Real Madrid, as Felipe Reyes struggled, on just 1-4 FG, 2 points, Maciulis came in and had 9 points in 15 minutes, on 3-4 FG, 2-2 from deep, 1-2 FT and American SG Jaycee Carroll was on a roll from deep scoring 16 points, on 6-7 FG, 4-5 from deep, while Spanish PG Sergio Rodriguez had 11 points and Spanish combo-guard Sergio Llull probably played his last Euroleague game with Real Madrid, as the Houston Rockets own his rights and EJBB thinks that all Llull was waiting on was a Euroleague title, before he comes to the NBA next season, probably to take the Pablo Prigioni spot on the roster.

As for Spanoulis and Olympiacos, it was a major win for them to be in another title game versus higher salary clubs, American SF Matt Lojeski led them with 17 points, on 7-10 FG, 3-6(3PT), American Center Othello Hunter had 10 points, 7 rebounds and Greek PG Kostas Sloukas added 10 points, on 3-5 FG, 2-3(3PT), 2-4 FT and Greek PF Georgios Printzis added 11 points, but Printezis was 0-2 from deep, to go along with Spanoulis 0-4 and Mantzaris was 0-4 from deep and just 5-23 for Olympiacos, compared to 13-30 for Real Madrid and the 12-26 on FT's did not help the Greek squad.  American PG Oliver Lafayette was 0-3 from deep and 1-5 on FT's and EJBB is wondering how he got a roster spot on the Croatian national team and got minutes over Mario Hezonja at the 2014 World Cup. As EJBB said in the past how can national team squads pump their chest out, if American PG's like Bo McCalebb are winning games at Eurobasket, the rule is STUPID, let the players in the nation get a roster spot, to advance their growth. Some nationality to the nation that American players are playing for has to be there, like Nick Calathes, is Greek American.

-      MORE MAGIC AT THE END BY V. SPANOULIS SENDS OLYMPIACOS TO FINAL

1. Olympiacos 70 CSKA Moscow 68 - The 2014-15 Euroleague season started off with DISRESPECT for the best player not in the NBA and the best player of the Euroleague in the past seven years Vassilis Spanoulis, who is 3-0 in past EL Final Four weekends, with 3 EL Titles and 3 EL Final Four MVP's, as he again has put Olympiacos on his back to make the 2015 EL Final four.   The past 3 EL titles were not enough for NBA GM's at the start of the season, as Spanoulis was not even in the Top Four of their list of Top players not in the NBA, with Rudy Fernandez, Dario Saric, Sergio Rodriguez and Milos Teodosic getting more votes than the clutch Greek PG Spanoulis.  All four of those other players are looking for their first Euroleague titles let alone MVP of the Final four and in the Friday semis, Spanoulis and Olympiacos went up against the international star of the FIBA 2014 World Cup in Sebian PG Milos Teodosic.

Both Spanoulis and Teodosic did not have their typical first team All-Euroleague games, with Teodosic only scoring 8 points in 23 minutes, on 2-9 FG, 1-5(3PT), 3-3 FT, 5 assists, 6 TO's and the King of the Euroleague the past decade Spanoulis started off the game with an awful 0-11 FG tries, but just when Euroleague fans thought age had finally kicked in to halt the Spanoulis dominance at EL Final four events, trailing 63-54, Spanoulis made his first FG with 3 minutes left in the game, a 3 from the left side to make it 63-57, then trailing 63-61, Spanoulis banged another 3 pointer to give Olympiacos a 64-63 lead and then Spanoulis shook the longer Vorontsevich off the dribble for a 66-63 lead with a mid-range jumper, and then tied 66-66, Spanoulis hit his usual step-back 3 point shot from the right side to give Olympiacos a 69-66 lead with 10 seconds left, Kostas Sloukas made 1-2 FT's and last try by CSKA Moscow was no good, so Olympiacos advance to play Real Madrid in the 2015 Final on Sunday, in a rematch of the 2013 Final, where Spanoulis took over and had 22 second half points in the win.

Spanoulis hit his game winning shot over former NBA player Nando De Colo, but EJBB was wondering why Andrei Kirilenko and his length, that caused Kobe Bryant in the NBA major problems, why was Andrei not on Spanoulis, but rather guarding Vangelis Mantzaris on the wing.

The last 3 minutes that showed the greatness of Spanoulis is something that NBA fans never got to witness, other than the game where Spanoulis took over versus team USA in the 101-95 win by Greece, because Jeff Van Gundy wanted to just stick Spanoulis in the corner, like a Kyle Korver type and some NBA fans think guys like Goran Dragic, Beno Udrih and Ricky Rubio are better players than Spanoulis, because they play in the NBA, but those fans are just CLUELESS, just as Jeff Van Gundy was to not give Spanoulis the ball at the top of the key in his one year in Houston.

Spanoulis finished with 13 points in 32 minutes, on 4-15 FG, but clutch 4-4 FG down the stretch, 3 assists, 3 steals, 4 TO's, while Greek PF Georgios Printezis had 14 points, 8 rebounds, on 6-11 FG, 2-5(3PT),  and Greek PG Kostas Sloukas added 10 points, on 2-3 FG, 6-7 FT in 17 minutes. Olympiacos made 9-25 from 3 point land compared to 4-14 for CSKA Moscow, as Nando De Colo led them with 18 points, but on only 6-16 FG, 2-4(3PT), 4-4 FT and Russian Center Sasha Kaun added 11 points.

 

-     DEEP REAL MADRID SQUAD ADVANCE TO FINAL MAKING 14-30 FROM DEEP

2. Real Madrid 96 Fenerbahce 87 - The Spanish squad Real Madrid is loaded with players at every position, and when they are hitting from 3 point land, like today, making 14-30 from deep, they are hard to stop and with veteran Final four players, versus first time Fenerbahce players, they advance to their 3rd straight EL Final four final on Sunday versus Olympiacos, but Felipe Reyes, Sergio Rodriguez, Sergio Llull and Rudy Fernandez are hoping to avoid a 3rd straight loss in a EL final, as they lost to Vassilis Spanoulis and Olympiacos in 2013 and Tyrese Rice, David Blatt and Maccabi Tel Aviv in 2014.

Real Madrid was led by Mexican center Gustavo Ayon with 18 points in 26 minutes, on 8-11 FG inside, 7 rebounds, 6 assists, 3 steals and was followed by American SF K.C Rivers with 17 points, making 5-6 from deep, Sergio Rodriguez 13 points, 7 assists and Sergio Llull 12 points, 9 assists, Rudy Fernandez and Andres Nocioni 12 points apiece.

American SG Andrew Goudelock led Fenerbahce with 26 points, on 11-17 FG, 2-6(3PT), 2-4 FT and was followed by Czech PF Jan Vesely with 20 points, on 6-8 FG, 8-10 FT, while Suns NBA first round pick, Serbian SG Bogdan Bogdanovic added 12 points, on 3-8 FG, 2-5(3PT), 4-4 FT and Euroleague 2015 MVP Nemanja Bjelica added 11 points, 5 rebounds, on 2-6 FG, 1-2(3PT), 6-8 FT, 4 TO's, needless to say Fenerbahce had to have more from the MVP to have a shot versus the vet Real madrid squad.

1. Olympiacos 77 Panathinaikos 66 - Most Greek fans cheer for Greek PG Vassilis Spanoulis at summer FIBA events, where the Greek PG has done so much to help Greek basketball, part of 2005 Gold Medal Eurobasket, Silver Medal at 2006 FIBA title and helped Greece beat NBA stars of team USA in semis and helped Greece grab a Bronze medal at 2009 Eurobasket, but during the fall, winter and spring months, some Greek Panathinaikos  fans can not root for Spanoulis, who signed with rival Olympiacos in 2010 after four seasons with Panathinaikos, as Spanoulis helped Panathinaikos to four Greek A1 league titles and the 2008-09 Euroleague title and the Final Four MVP with the Green squad.  Spanoulis led Olympiacos to their first Greek title in 15 years in 2011-12 versus Panathinaikos and has become the king of the Euroleague with the red squad, winning the 2012 and 2013 Euroleague titles and was named MVP of Final four and again this year Spanoulis has led the red squad to another Euroleague final four, while the Green squad and their fans are on the outside looking in at the May 15th event.

As far as Greek A1 play, Panathinaikos has gotten the better of Spanoulis since he jumped to their Olympiacos rivals, with Panathinaikos winning three Greek titles in that time and Spanoulis and Olympiacos only the title in 2011-12.  The anger to Spanoulis joining the rivals, got UGLY again, when with Olympiacos about to win on the road, Spanoulis put his hands to both ears, after sticking a Daggar three point shot, as Spanoulis wanted to hear the crowd keep cursing at him, but when he and his Olympiacos teammates got to the bench, Spanoulis and the red squad had to make a dash for it, as objects were being thrown at the bench.  The win goes to Olympiacos now 23-1, while Panathinaikos fall to 21-4 and in second place.     Panathinaikos official Giannakopoulos wants Spanoulis suspended for trying to get the crowd hyped up and police are now watching the Spanoulis home in Greece, fearing Panathinaikos fans.   The emotional game got Panathinaikos coach Dusko Ivanovic fired today, as the loss to the red squad and not being in the Euroleague Final four is what cost him his job.

Olympiacos was led by Greek PF Georgios Printezis with 16 points, on 6-12 FG, 4-7(3PT), 9 rebounds and was followed by American SF Tremmell Darden with 15 points, on 6-11 FG, 1-3(3PT), 2-2 FT, while Spanoulis hit the Daggar 3 and had 12 points, 7 assists, on 5-11 FG, 2-6(3PT).    Panathinaikos was led by Uruguayan center Esteban Batista with 22 points, 13 rebounds, on 7-10 FG, 8-14 FT and was followed by Greek combo-guard Nikos Pappas with 12 points.
