1. VALENCIA 110 REAL MADRID 105 - Two days after Real Madrid knocked off the defending Back to Back Euroleague champions Olympiacos, in the deciding game five, at home, to punch their ticket to the Euroleague Final Four, Real Madrid had to come down from that high and try to defeat Valencia in Spanish ACB league play and the defensive intensity from the Euroleague playoff series was gone, as second place Valencia put up 110 points and the 27-0 start to the ACB season was over, as Real Madrid drop to 27-1 and Valencia go to 26-3 in ACB play.  Former Panathinaikos Euroleague champion SG Romain Sato led Valencia with 17 points, on 7-12 FG, 2-4(3PT), 1-1 FT and was followed by Lithuanian Center Ksistof Lavrinovic, Serbian SF Vladimir Lucic and American PF Justin Doellman with 15 points apiece in the win.   Euroleague playoff game five leader Spanish Combo-guard Sergio Llull led Real Madrid again in this ACB league game with 23 points in 31 minutes, on 7-13 FG, 3-6(3PT), 6-6 FT, 8 assists, 6 rebounds and was followed by Spanish SF Rudy Fernandez with 18 points, while Spanish PG Sergio Rodriguez added 16 points and American SF Tremmell Darden had 14 points.

1. CIBONA 72 CEDEVITA 59 - After putting up 21 points, 15 rebounds and 6 assists versus Crvena Zvezda in the Adriatic League Semis in a 75-70 win, Croatian versatile PF, SF or Point Forward, just turned 20 year old, 6 foot 10 inch Dario Saric, took over the Adriatic league Final today, with a 23 point, 11 rebound, 7 assist, 5 blocked shot game, on 7-17 FG, 5-9(3PT), 4-4 FT and was named MVP.  After the Final his agent Misko Raznatovic  announced that Dario Saric would enter the 2014 NBA Draft.   Saric is projected in Mock NBA drafts, as the top European player to be taken and most have him in the six to ten range of the NBA first round.   Saric has the ability to take the ball coast to coast at 6 foot 10 inch size after grabbing the rebound, just like Croatian Tony Kukoc did in his BBALL career and Saric also has the ability to stick deep shots, while also being a tough rebounder, that moves well off the ball and can find teammates for easy buckets. Saric will not blow people away with athletic ability, but can help an NBA right away with his various offensive skills.

1. OLYMPIACOS 71 REAL MADRID 62 - The defending Back to Back Euroleague champions, were in trouble to Spanish ACB club Real Madrid, that is deep enough to be 27-0 in the ACB play this season and Real Madrid held serve with two wins in Spain to go up 2-0 on the Greek squad Olympiacos, as many thought the Euroleague title run was about to end for the Vassilis Spanoulis led Greek squad.  After staying alive with a 78-76 game three win in Greece, Olympiacos tied the series up at 2-2 today with a nine point win and now the pressure is back on Rudy Fernandez, Sergio Llull, Sergio Rodriquez, Nikola Mirotic, Ioannis Bourousis, Felipe Reyes and the rest of the DEEPEST SQUAD in Europe to win game five at home in Spain and advance to the Final Four to try and grab the Euroleague title.  EJBB wrote that when Olympiacos was down 0-2, Greek PG Vassilis Spanoulis might have to average 25 points per game for the rest of the series, for them to come all the way back and win the series.  The 31 year old Spanoulis has yet to go for 25 points in this series and after a tough 0-6 start to this game on FG's, Spanoulis finished the rest of the game shooting 4-8 FG, for 12 points, 6 rebounds, 7 assists and that 25 point game for the 3 time Euroleague Final Four MVP, might come at the best time, in a deciding game five to move on to the Final Four. It has been an up and down year for Spanoulis, but NEVER COUNT A 3 TIME MVP OUT IN A ONE GAME SITUATION.  Spanoulis got more help today from American PF-Center Bryant Dunston with 13 points, 8 rebounds, on 5-6 FG, 3-5 FT and American SF Matt Lojeski also added 13 points, making 3-5(3PT), while Greek PF Georgios Printezis and Greek SG Evangelos Mantzaris added 10 points apiece and 20 year old Greek SF Ioannis Papapetrou added 7 big points in 14 minutes in the Greek win.    Real Madrid was led by Spanish SF Rudy Fernandez with 18 points, 8 rebounds, on 4-10 FG, 3-7(3PT), 7-8 FT and was followed by American SF Tremmell Darden with 10 points, but Real Madrid only hit on 5-22 from 3 point land, compared to 8-26 for Olympiacos.   The Greek squad only made 11-21 on FT's, compared on 21-28 for Real Madrid and for Olympiacos to keep a THREE-PEAT chance alive, they will have to hit a better percentage in Spain in game five and hope 31 year old Spanoulis has a vintage 25 point game still in him to help quiet the Spanish crowd.

-   THE BEST GUARD FROM SPAIN SERGIO LLULL 26 YEAR OLD & IN HIS PRIME HELPS

-     PUT DEEPEST SQUAD IN EUROPE IN FINAL FOUR OVER 2012 AND 2013 CHAMPIONS

1. REAL MADRID 83 OLYMPIACOS 69 - The home squad from Spain got revenge against the Greek squad that beat them in the 2013 Euroleague final, as the best Spanish national team guard in the world,  26 year old Sergio Llull, stepped up just like soon to be 34 year old Juan Carlos Navarro did in past big games, as both Spanish national team guards have the ability to stick the DAGGAR 3 point shots, as well as find teammates, with combo-guard skills.  Most NBA fans and some NBA reporters might think that because Ricky Rubio plays in the NBA, that must mean he is a better guard than Sergio Llull, Juan Carlos Navarro and Sergio Rodriguez, but until the young Twolves PG gets a consistent jumper, to keep defenses honest, EJBB says his impact in close games is FIFTH, behind the other three Spanish national team guards playing in Europe, along with Jose Calderon of the NBA Mavs, as all can stick the deep shots in close playoff games.    Juan Carlos Navarro already is in the Final Four, with a 3-0 sweep over Galatasaray and today Sergio Llull showed why the title of best guard not in the NBA, might be his, if he can keep his great play from 27-0 ACB league play this year and what he did in the deciding game five versus Olympiacos going with a Real Madrid 2014 Euroleague title.   Sergio Llull led Real Madrid today with 20 points in 37 minutes, on 7-12 FG, 4-6(3PT), 2-2 FT, 4 assists and ZERO turnovers and was followed by Spanish SF Rudy Fernandez and Vet glue-guy Spanish PF Felipe Reyes with 15 points apiece, while 23 year old Montenegrin-Spaniard PF Nikola Mirotic added 10 points and Greek Center Ioannis Bourousis along with Spanish PG Sergio Rodriguez added 8 points apiece in the win that sends Real Madrid back to the Final Four.

The 26 year old Sergio Llull is in his prime and stepped up big today and some might say he played larger than 3 time Euroleague MVP Vassilis Spanoulis, and the stats will say that today, but EJBB says Sergio Llull might be a better guard than Ricky Rubio, but unless he leads the DEEPEST squad in Europe to the Euroleague title, this game five battle versus Vassilis Spanoulis will not be remembered ten years from now, without a Real Madrid Euroleague 2014 title.  Vassilis Spanoulis will soon be 32 years of age and the 2013-14 Olympiacos roster did not have the perimeter scoring weapons that Sergio Llull had on his Real Madrid squad and with Sergio Llull and Sergio Rodriguez sharing the ball handling duties, less pressure was on Lull, compared to Spanoulis, who in his past two Euroleague titles, had Acie Law to team with in the backcourt, to play more off the ball at times. Today the loss of Acie Law showed, as Spanoulis did not get a big day inside from PF Bryant Dunston, just 4 points in 30 minutes, on 1-5 FG, 2-4 FT and perimeter guards Kostas Sloukas, Evangelos Mantzaris and Mardy Collins only gave Olympiacos and Spanoulis, eight points of help, making just 3-9 FG's total from the SG spot and so Spanoulis was asked to be the savior versus DEEP Real Madrid, while running the team and having to be the main scorer and the guys that battled with him in the back to back titles were gone.  Gone from the title teams are Kostas Papanikolaou, Kyle Hines, Pero Antic, Acie Law and vet Greek SF Stratos Perperoglou was not available for this Real Madrid series.      EJBB thought Spanoulis needed a 25 point perfect game today in Spain, for Olympiacos THREE-PEAT chances to stay alive, with all of those players gone and today that VINTAGE SPANOULIS TYPE OF GAME was not there with him turning the ball over seven times, to go along with his seven assists and just 2-9 from 3 point land in 34 minutes Spanoulis had 19 points on 7-16 FG, 3-6 FT, as Olympiacos only made 10-17 FT, compared to 20-22 for Real Madrid and Olympiacos had 13 turnovers, compared to just seven by Real Madrid.  Spanoulis was followed in scoring by American SF Matt Lojeski with 15 points, making 3-3(3PT) and American SF Brent Petway added 9 points, on 3-4(3PT).

Real Madrid and Sergio Llull move on to battle Juan Carlos Navarro and FC Barcelona in the Euroleague Final Four Semis and Vassilis Spanoulis and Olympiacos will finish the European season off with a probable battle with Panathinaikos in the Greek A1 Finals and then the 32 year old Spanoulis will compete in the WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS with Greece and another battle versus 27 year old Sergio Llull could be coming this year with the Spanoulis Greek teammates that he has won many big games with in the past.

1. OLYMPIACOS 78 REAL MADRID 76 - The defending back to back Euroleague champions grab the two point win to STAY ALIVE in the best of five game playoff series versus Real Madrid, as Olympiacos are now down two games to one, with game four back on their home court in Greece on Wednesday. Greek combo-guard Kostas Sloukas gave Olympiacos the two point lead late with two FT's and Spanish combo-guard Sergio Llull missed the front end of two FT's with six seconds left, with a chance to tie and then had to miss on purpose on the second shot and Olympiacos walked off with the two point win, with a chance to force a game five, if they take game four. Sloukas was part of the Back to Back title squads and so was Greek PF Georgios Printezis, who hit the game winning shot versus CSKA Moscow in the 2012 title game, and Printezis also came up big in this game, as he hit a HUGE 3 PT shot to give Olympiacos the 76-74 lead, off a Bryant Dunston pass.  Olympiacos got a huge game on the inside from American PF-Center Bryant Dunston with 21 points, 9 rebounds in 30 minutes, on 9-10 FG, 3-4 FT and was followed by Greek PG Vassilis Spanoulis with 17 points, 4 assists, on 7-15 FG, 1-5(3PT), 2-2 FT, while American SF Matt Lojeski added 11 points and American SF-PF Brent Petway, also added 11 points in the win.   Olympiacos made 21-26 FT, compared to 13-20 for Real Madrid and the Spanish squad was led by Spanish PG Sergio Rodriguez with 19 points, on 8-16 FG, 1-4(3PT), 2-4 FT, 4 assists and was followed by Spanish SF Rudy Fernandez with 18 points, while Spanish combo-guard Sergio Llull added 16 points.
