Real Madrid 82-68 Olympiakos

Written by
We lost our return match against Real Madrid with some poor play but since we lost with a 14 point total, we equalled the score differential of the first game and therefore remain in pole position to qualify from the group.

Olympiakos began the match making some poor choices in both attack and defence and it was not long before Real Madrid amounted a lead of 15-6. The entrance of Mavrokefalidis, Gordon and Keselj into the team made us a lot stronger in defence and we started to regain some of the lost ground getting the score to 26-20. Unfortunately Real Madrid's players continued making some damage on our team and soon brought up a 10 point difference once again.

Milos Teodosic reduced the score to 37-31 but when the half time klaxon sounded, the score was 42-34 in favour of the Spanish. In the second half, our attack started to perform much better but defensively we were still playing some terrible ball and so the score was 50-38 after just 3 minutes of the second half.

We could not manage to find any rhythm in our attack to decrease the point different and Papaloukas was seemingly still troubled from his recent wound as he wasn't able to influence the game in any major terms although we managed to reduce the points to an 8 point difference by the end of the third quarter.

The last quarter saw us make an effort to reduce the scoreline and we were partially successful in doing this before collapsing to first a 13 point difference (65-52) and then later in the quarter, a sixteen point difference (82-66). We made a final effort in the last few seconds of the game to grab the vital points to ensure the point difference was the same as the first game and at least we managed to do that.
