-  THE 2012 & 2013 EL CHAMPS TIE SERIES 1-1 G. PRINTEZIS & V. SPANOULIS LEAD

1. Olympiacos 76 FC Barcelona 63 - After being out of the lineup of Olympiacos roster for a large part of the end of the Euroleague season, 3 time EL Final Four MVP Greek PG Vassilis Spanoulis returned in game one of their playoff series versus FC Barcelona, but had just one point in 10 minutes of play. EJBB wrote that if the Greek squad wanted to get to another Final Four, Spanoulis would have to get that MVP level game back and in the start of game two on the road in Spain, Spanoulis was aggressive and scored early giving Olympiacos a 10 point halftime lead and the inspired play by Spanoulis rubbed off on three other members of the 2012 and 2013 EL championship squads, as Georgios Printezis, Evangelos Mantzaris and Kostas Sloukas all played well in the road win.

Greek PF Georgios Printezis led in scoring with 22 points in 27 minutes, on 10-13 FG, 2-4(3PT), 9 rebounds and Vassilis Spanoulis followed with 16 points, 5 assists, in 25 minutes, on 6-11 FG, 4-7(3PT), while Greek combo-guard E. Mantzaris was perfect 4-4 FG, all from 3 point land for 12 points and Greek PG Kostas Sloukas had a fine floor game, just 2 points, but 4 assists in 14 minutes, as Olympiacos moved the ball better than FC Barcelona with 20 assists, compared to just 7 by the Spanish power. Two players not on the back to back EL title teams were American SF Matt Lojeski who added 9 points and American PF Othello Hunter added 8 points in the win.   Olympiacos made 13-27 from deep compared to just 6-20 for for FC Barcelona.

The Spanish squad was led by vet Spanish SG Juan Carlos Navarro with 16 points, on 5-8 FG, 4-6(3PT), 2-4 FT and was followed by Croatian Center Ante Tomic with 14 points, 14 rebounds, on 7-14 FG, while Czech PG Tomas Satoransky added 8 points, 5 rebounds.  If FC Barcelona wants to steal a game back in the crazy atmosphere of the Greek crowd, EJBB says play the more athletic young players, as Croatian SG Mario Hezonja played later in this game two loss, 14 minutes, 3 points, on 1-4 from deep, but let him handle the ball more at the top of key, not just waiting to shoot a 3 point shot, and Spanish SG Alex Abrines only played 8 minutes, 0-1 FG. If FC Barcelona wants a shot at winning in Greece, the young legs of Hezonja and Abrines have to get more touches.

 

-  REAL MADRID UP 2-0 AS ANADOLU EFES LOSE 7 PT LEAD LATE SERGIO LLULL 18 & 12

2. Real Madrid 90 Anadolu Efes 85 - The Turkish squad looked like it was going to steal a game on the road, as they were up 7 points with 2 minutes left in the fourth quarter, but big 3 point shots by Sergio Rodriguez and Felipe Reyes gave the Spanish power the lead, as two time EL champion Greek SF Stratos Perperoglou, missed 3 open shots from deep, that he hit like layups in past EL Titles with Panathinaikos and Olympiacos, but it was not to be and Real Madrid are up 2-0 as game three will be in Turkey.

Houston Rockets 2nd round pick Spanish combo-guard Sergio Llull kept Real Madrid in the game until the 3 point shots by Rodriguez and Reyes, as Lull had 18 points, 12 assists in 33 minutes, on 6-13 FG, 3-8 from deep, 3-6 FT and was followed by Spanish SF Rudy Fernandez with 15 points, 7 assists, while American SF K.C Rivers added 14 points, Spanish PG Sergio Rodriguez 11 points and Argentinian PF Andres Nocioni 10 points, along with the dunk of the game over Dario Saric.

Anadolu Efes was led by Serbian Center Nenad Krstic with 23 points in 32 minutes, on 7-10 FG, 9-11 FT, 6 rebounds and was followed by French PG Thomas Huertel with 16 points and 15 big assists, on 4-9 FG, 3-5(3PT), 5-8 FT, while 19 year old Turkish SG Cedi Osman added 12 points, on 5-10 FG, 2-5(3PT), Stratos Perperoglou 11 points, but just 2-10 on deep shots and Sixers first round pick Croatian PF Dario Saric added 11 points, 9 rebounds, on 3-9 FG, 1-5(3PT), 4-4 FT in 29 minutes.

-          REAL MADRID GO UP 1-0 K.C RIVERS & GUSTAVO AYON LEAD THE WAY

1. Real Madrid 80 Anadolu Efes 72 - The Spanish power go up 1-0, as they try to get to the Final Four again this year, after losing in the Final to Maccabi Tel Aviv. American SF K.C Rivers led the way with 21 points in 23 minutes, on 6-9 FG, making 6-7 from 3 point land, 3-3 FT, 5 rebounds and was followed by the best Mexican player in the world Center Gustavo Ayon with 14 points, 10 rebounds, on 5-7 FG, 4-4 FT, while Spanish veteran glue-guy PF Felipe Reyes added 12 points, Spanish SF Rudy Fernandez 10 points and Spanish combo-guard Sergio Llull added 6 points, 7 assists.

Anadolu Efes was led by Sixers first round pick , Croatian PF Dario Saric with 13 points in 25 minutes, on 4-9 FG, 2-4(3PT), 3-4 FT, 5 rebounds and was followed by young 19 year old Turkish SG Cedi Osman with 11 points, on 4-7 FG, 1-2(3PT), 2-4 FT, while Serbian Center Nenad Krstic added 9 points, 6 rebounds.


-         FC BARCELONA GO UP 1-0 WINNING BOARDS 40-24 IN 17 POINT WIN

2. FC Barcelona 73 Olympiacos 57 - The Spanish power go up 1-0, as they outrebounded Greek power Olympiacos 40-24 and win game one by 17 points.  Olympiacos was without 3 time EL Final Four MVP Greek PG Vassilis Spanoulis for a long time this season, and they got him back for game one of the playoffs, but Spanoulis was not at MVP level in game one, playing just 10 minutes and scoring just one point, on 0-4 FG, 0-2(3PT), 1-2 FT and if Spanoulis does not come back strong in game two and play at his usual MVP level, it will be tough for Olympiacos to advance to the Final Four.  Young 20 year old Greek PF Dimittrios Agravanis led Olympiacos with 9 points, on 4-6 FG, 1-1(3PT), and American PF Othello Hunter added 7 points, on 3-6 FG, 1-2 FT.

FC Barcelona was led by Slovenian SF-PF Bostan Nachbar with 10 points in 12 minutes, on 3-3 from 3 point land, 1-2 FT and veteran Spanish SG Juan Carlos Navarro also had 10 points, on 4-11 FG, 2-5(3PT), while Czech PG Tomas Satoransky added 9 points, on 3-5 FG, 2-2(3PT), 6 rebounds and Polish PF Maciej Lampe added 8 points, 9 rebounds in the game one win.

Croatian 20 year old SG-SF Mario Hezonja played 17 minutes and scored 5 points, on 2-6 FG, 0-2(3PT), 1-1 FT, 3 rebounds, 1 assist.  The depth on the perimeter for FC Barcelona is not the best thing for Mario Hezonja and his skills will be a better fit in the more wide open NBA game, as the NBA is now a wing game.


-                       EUROLEAGUE PLAYOFFS GAME ONE - APRIL 14th

-     CSKA MOSCOW WIN BY 27 & LOOK READY TO MAKE UP FOR 2012 LOST EL TITLE

1. CSKA Moscow 93 Panathinaikos 66 - The power from Russia always are in the mix for a Euroleague title and CSKA Moscow showed their depth and scoring ability in game one of the Euroleague playoffs versus Greek power Panathinaikos, winning by 27 points. Milos Teodosic and Andrei Kirilenko were part of the CSKA Moscow team that lost the 2012 Euroleague title to Vassilis Spanoulis and Olympiacos.

Teodosic and Kirilenko are looking for their first Euroleague title and today, Serbian PG Milos Teodosic led the way with 18 points in 19 minutes, on 7-8 FG, 4-5(3PT), dished 8 assists and Russian former NBA forward Andrei Kirilenko added 12 points, on 5-7 FG, making 1-1(3PT), 1-2 FT, while American SF Demetris Nichols made 3-3(3PT) and Georgian SF Manuchar Markoishvili made 3-4(3PT) with both scoring 13 points apiece, as CSKA Moscow made 14-27 from 3 point land, compared to 7-19 for Panathinaikos.   The Greek squad was led by number 20 on the EJBB top 25 Euro Vets that could help NBA teams, with PG Nikos Pappas scoring 16 points in 23 minutes, on 5-9 FG, 2-4(3PT), 4-4 FT and was followed by American PF James Gist with 14 points, while Greek Center Loukas Mavrokefalides added 10 points.

 

-   DEFENDING 2014 EL CHAMPS DOWN 0-1 WITH NO TYRESE RICE OR DAVID BLATT

2. Fenerbahce 80 Maccabi Tel Aviv 72 - To say Maccabi Tel Aviv was an underdog at the 2014 EL Final Four, would be an understatement, but led by PG Tyrese Rice and coach David Blatt, Maccabi Tel Aviv shocked the European basketball world last year, beating CSKA Moscow in the Semis and then beating Real Madrid in the Final, to bring glory back to the yellow of Maccabi Tel Aviv.   Tyrese Rice signed with Khimki Moscow in the summer and David Blatt found himself in the NBA coaching LeBron James and the Cavs, so beating a deeper Fenerbahce squad, that played the Spurs tough in the NBA preseason could be tough for Maccabi Tel Aviv, in this series.

Former NBA PG Jeremy Pargo did his best Tyrese Rice impression, leading Maccabi Tel Aviv with 25 points, 8 assists, on 9-17 FG, 1-5(3PT), 6-7 FT, but Devin Smith was held to 10 points, while Alex Tyus added 11 points, 11 rebounds and Israeli PG Yogev Ohayon added 12 points, 6 assists, making 3-4(3PT).

Fenerbahce was led by former NBA Czech PF Jan Vesely with 23 points in 21 minutes, on 11-14 FG, 1-2 FT, 7 rebounds and was followed by Serbian PF Nemanja Bjelica with 13 points, 12 rebounds, while Turkish center Luka Zoric added 10 points.   The game one win for Fenerbahce was big because their main perimeter threats American SG Andrew Goudelock was held to 8 points, on 4-8 FG, 0-1(3PT) and Serbian SG and Suns first round pick Bogdan Bogdanovic was held to 5 points, on just 1-9 FG, 1-4(3PT), 2-2 FT, but are still up 1-0 on the defending 2014 EL  champs in their best of 5 series.
