Siena 81-80 Olympiakos (Euroleague)

We came within a breath of getting a win in Siena tonight but ended up losing the game by a single point and allowing the Italians to tie the series so far. We had been trailing the Italian side during the night, sometimes by as much as 15 points but a tremendous fight back in the final quarter allowed us to get within a single point.
Unfortunately it was not to be and so we will play Siena next in SEF and need to win in order to advance to the final-4 tournament.

Siena 88-76 Olympiakos

We made a poor display tonight and only really seemed to show up in Toscana for five minutes of play. In the final event, we lost 88-76 to Siena and having now lost the series 3-1 we have been eliminated from the Euroleague.

The game started off well enough for us with Halperin scoring five points and taking us in front 3-5 but Siena soon went ahead 17-12. Our players, including Bourousis were not productive enough even if they were making some good movement at times. Our shooting was tragic at times as well and we were unable to make much headway aggressively. We tried to change the gameplay through the introduction of Papaloukas and Teodosic but Siena then managed to go onto a 9 point break and finish the first period 10 points in front (26-16).

The start of the second half was just as poor for us although Duda changed the team around again, bringing in Halperin again and Nesterovic. This change allowed us to recover somewhat but this was only a temporary respite for us and we soon collapsed again going down to a 15 point defecit (42-27). Halperin and Gordon made some efforts in the game but this was not enough and at halftime we had let in 50 points in just 20 minutes!. This statistic above everything else summed this game up for us, our defence was tragic and our attack no better.

With the second half, we statred to make a fightback. Our defence was better and we managed to bring a 17 point difference down to only 10 points mainly due to Gordon but also some decent play from Spanoulis. We managed to recover further, despite the poor decisions from the referee and with the shots from Teodosic, we managed to bring the score to within a distance which we could work on for the last period.

However, with the last period came a collapse of almost gargantuan proportions. Despite Gordon's play and even a basket from the player, Siena went 10 points in front at 73-63. This got worse for us as the points went from +10 to +12. With every point we scored from this time onwards, Siena also scored the same and so the +12 difference remained until the end.
The loss means that we have now lost the series and are therefore eliminated from the Euroleague.

Siena 81-72 Olympiakos

Olympiakos lost tonight with a 81-72 scoreline from Siena and will need to win in Thursdays match or they will be knocked out of the Euroleague competition.

Milos Teodosic started in the basic 5 of Olympiakos and showed himself ready to play. Papanikolaou and Bourousis played an exceptional defence early on in the game and so we broke we started 6-10 ahead after five minutes on the clock. However Siena's David Moss scored an important basket to bring the Italians 9-10 in the game. Siena then made a five point break with this basket and went in front for the first time in the game. A further substitution for Siena caused us some problems and allowed Siena to score 10 points to our 4, finally finishing the first period with a 21-14 scoreline.

Vasilis Spanoulis brought us back into the game during the second quarter and so we brang the scoreline to a more respectable 23-20 after three minutes. Despite some good choices being made, we could not manage to mind any rhythm in our attack and allowed the Italians to continue scoring against us. To combat our problems in the attack, Nesterovic and Halperin were introduced and these two players helped us equalise the score at 31-31 two minutes before half time. We then went in front by two points but then allowed Siena to make a four point break and finish the half 39-37 in front.

The start of the third period was not good for our team. Seina pushed in front 51-44 and this was not just due to our poor defence but also our lack of substance in the attack. Olympiakos made some good plays through Matt Nielsen but this was not enough whilst Papaloukas and Spanoulis just simply could not get going. At the same time, Siena continued to take advantage of our problems to go 10 points in front (60-50) at the end of the third quarter.

The final period was us decrease the score to 62-56 in the first two minutes and we went to score more. However a shot of Spanoulis bounced off the metal hoop and allowed Siena to break, score and even win a foul shot which brought the score back to +9 (65-56). Siena continued shooting and so they went ahead by double digit figures. Our players now seemed to give up and so the difference went as bad as +16 for the Italians (73-57), six minutes before the end of the match). We went for a fightback through Nesterovic, decreasing the score to 75-65 but it was not enough and so the Italians go 2-1 ahead in the series.

Olympiakos 65-82 Siena

Olympiakos lost the second match in SEF with a 65-82 scoreline and now want at least a victory when we visit Italy for the next match.

It was impossible for us to replicate the opening that we made to the series on Tuesday night but we didn't even come close to making a decent display. We made too many defensive errors, did not make the correct choices in the attack although we did start off the game tying the game at 6-6.
We then went in front 12-10 with a good basket shot from Vasilis Spanoulis but the Italians soon took over with a ten point break and reached 12-20 at the end of the first period.

Siena's break continued in the second period with the points difference reaching +12 (12-24) before we answered back through Zoran Erceg (15-24). Unfortunately our poor play continued and the Italians went back to a 12 point lead (15-27) some six minutes before the end of the half. The score got even worse for us at one point (23-28) before we rallied through Erceg and decreased the lead to only 8 points at the end of the half (31-39).

At the start of the third period, we did make a recovery of sorts, reducing the points difference to +4 to the italians but unfortunately Siena then made a 5 point break to take the score back to +9 (35-44). We again came back at Siena (40-44) before they reacted and with a new break went 40-48 ahead.
Ivkovic asked the players to pass a little closer to the basket and the team executed his commands to the letter with Mavrokefalidis and Bourousis bringing the score back to +5 (47-52). Unfortunately Siena took over yet again and once more increased the difference, this time to +10 (51-61) at the end of the third quarter.

The last period didn't bring any better relief to us and we continued to make mistakes in the attack whilst the Italians were annoyinging accurate with their shots, maintaining a double digit lead (54-68). We tried one last set of attacks but failed to make any headway and so we ended up losing the overall game at 65-82.

Olympiakos 89-41 Siena

We had a real party tonight with Siena in the SEF stadium, thrashing Siena 89-41 in the first of three matches and even more remarkable - Siena had a single figure score for over half the game.
Thrylos humiliated Siena in front of ten thousand of our fans in the play offs for the final four and will go from here to the second match on Thursday night.

We started the game with a real passion and force which couldn't be stopped. Siena were dumbfounded for the first set entirely as we ran rings about them. Their defences were quickly overrun by Olympiakos with Bourousis initially gaining a 7-0 scoreline before quickly helping his teammates build a 15-0 advantage. Spanoulis helped bring the score to 19-0 before Siena finally got off the mark in the 8th minute with a shot from almost 7 metres out. We did not let down the pressure much to our credit and we broke down the Italian attacks time after time finally finishing the set 24-4 ahead.

We began the second quarter defensively and Halperin and Gordon providing some very hard work at stopping Siena dead in their tracks. Nesterovic took over for the attack and halped bring the score forward for us along with Gordon and Spanoulis. The italians tried to change their team around but nothing was working for them and we soon racked up at a 47-9 lead, 38 points advantage (!!) for halftime.

It took Siena three minutes of the third period to finally drag their team past the ten point mark but this was obviously not going to win the the game especially as we had by then gotten ourselves to 55-11. Ivkovic seeing the victory was complete started to trial different formations and allowed Siena to slowly rebuilt a less embarassing scoreline at 61-22. The game itself ended at 89-41 with Siena gaining a more respectable scoreline after we were still trialling different playing formations. The game itself was over as a competitive match at halftime and we can now take our team onto the second of the matches having destroyed Siena in the opening match.

Olympiakos 78-64 Zalgiris

Olympiakos made an overwhelming demonstration against Zalgiris Kaounas winning the game 78-64 and formally finishing top in the group. The team looks ready now for the semi-final with Siena which will take place on Thursday 22nd March.

We started the match with a starting 5 which is not seen often : Teodosic, Gordon, Papanikolaou, Erceg and Glyniadakis. This lineup saw the Lithuanians exploit the start and go ahaead 2-6. We answered them immediately though and with an eleven point break we went ahead 13-6 with Gordon making a very good game. Zalgiris reduced the score to 15-13 but we continued to play well and so we brought the score to 19-20 at the end of the first period.

At the start of the second period, Zalgiris went ahead in front (26-29) but with Halperin and Gordon's hard and important work, we brought a 15-5 score and went in front 41-34 at halftime. During the second half, Olympiakos continued with the good play and took a point difference (48-41) without being pressed particularly. By continuing with a good defence and utilising Nesterovic we managed to keep a decent points differential.

Neserovic continued to be the playmaker for all of our attacks and we didn't seem to have any problems in maintaining the points difference near a double-digit level (58-49) one minute before the end of the third period. The last ten minutes saw us continue with our attacks through Spanoulis and Papaloukas. We actually managed to get the points advantage to 17 points (74-57) before finally settling to a 78-64 score at the end of the game.

Fenerbahce Ulker 65-80 Olympiakos

Thrylos showed the character of a truly big team in the city of Istanbul tonight, overcoming Fenerbahce by 65 points to 80. After the game, Olympiakos finished first in the group and will have the advantage of home in the playoffs for the Euroleague. Erceg and Spanoulis showed themselves incredible tonight whilst Gordon, Mavrokefalidis, Papaloukas and Nesterovic played well.

Olympiakos started the game with a pentad of Teodosic, Spanoulis, Papanikolaou, Erceg and Mavrokefalidis and we played an exceptional defensive game in the opening 5 minutes of the match. In the attack, Spanoulis, Erceg and Mavrokefalidis all made good work in the attack and so we were 13-6 up before long. The Turkish side improved their defence though and with some individual plays from their players decreased the score to 15-14. Erceg and Spanoulis again took the lead with a 5 point break and brought up the difference to +6 points (20-14) but we ended up slipping back and finishing the first period barely ahead 20-18.

Dusan Ivkovic saw that Teodosic was not having a good evening and so various players were tried in his place along with giving Spanoulis and Erceg a rest. The ganme was tied for points right on the ten minute time but Fenerbahce managed to grab a further two points to finish the first half 36-34 in front.

The second half started off reasonably well for our team again, Erceg scoring again to bring the score to 38-37 but we then allowed Fenerbahce to make a seven point break in the following two minutes and let them get 45-37 in front. This is simply because we had lost our concentration in both defence and attack. Papaloukas and Teodosic continued in the field for the time being with the result that one bad decision followed another on the court and the Turks increased their break to 11 points (49-37), five minutes before the end of the third period.

Six minutes had passed in the period before we woke up properly. The entrance of Gordon and Mavrokefalidis added some stability to our team and so we brought the score back to 51-45, two minutes before the end of the third period. Papaloukas and Erceg also now helped with the score and we ended up with a score of 55-54 at the end of the period.

In the last quarter, Gordon played an astonishing defence and he was matched in his excellent play by Mavrokefalidis and Papaloukas. These three players helped the team make an 8 point break so that we led once again 55-62, six minutes before the end of the game. Erceg continued with his play and shot two baskets to bring the score to +9 (57-66). Spanoulis then brought the score to +11 (64-75) with some amazing play in the final period. We tried to chase +14 and we finally managed this in the last minute of the game with a score of 65-80 (+15)
