This is the second weekend of this season that starts in Kaunas where Zalgiris welcomes Panathinaikos.
Under the circumstances, Zalgiris in the SEF experienced the defeat from a psychedelic Olympian. He fought the match until the beginning of the third quarter but the follow-up was not proportionate as from that point on he did not appear to be able to threaten the Reds. The usual suspects Le Day and Grigonis stayed in shallow waters (9 with 4 / 12 shoots together), leaving Landail almost alone with Lekavitsu, who has good performances against him. The roster is relatively poor, and the performance of the team has skyrocketed.
Panathinaikos, on the other hand, also derives from a defeat outside the program after failing to win the last ALBA scoring championship at OAKA in the second round. This defeat overflowed the glass and came the dismissal of coach Pedoulakis. Vovora traveled temporarily in Kaunas where Fridet was normally on the mission that overcame his injury. I expect a reaction from the Panathinaikos who is wronging himself with his defensive function. He has lost an 3 match at the point with his latest attack.
Summing up I think that Panathinaikos will fight in Lithuania and the handicap given to him I find excessive. He has lost several games in the details and only with Himki he easily lost in the end but the two rosters certainly do not stand up to comparison. Hopefully he won't wake up to Panathinaikos and play at the familiar low standards. I'll take a low Over as well, as Zalgiris shows to the last that he has lost his defensive cohesion.
The point I choose is ...Panathinaikos (+ 5.5 & Over 147.5 pts) in performance 2.28 at stoiximan.
