    Lets see how coach Pitino is going to react in the most hostile environment of his entire career.
    It should be interesting if Pana continues to show the same energy as in the game with the Russians...


    Happy new year to everyone!! I wish to you and to your families the very best.

    If Oly loses this game after losing to Dacka, then Blatt's future in Piraeus will be questioned. They are slightly favorite and their fans can't accept another defeat.

    Real, Fener, Efes, Milan, Madrid and Barca are heavy favorites.

    Zalgris vs. CSKA, CSKA is slightly favorite due to Zalgris's bad situation, I didn't expect them to lose at Canaria, I would say CSKA is the heavy favorite if they weren't playing terrible at Athens.

    Gran Canaria vs. Khimki, Canaria is slighlty favorite.

    Kavaliauskas is one of the guys you want to rely on when you playing against CSKA. He's on injury, and even if he will have any playing time he's going to be out of shape. Marius Grigonis questionable as well, losing him makes it harder in the defensive-end against elite back-court.

    This I hear in Turkish media, even in some pretty good podcasts too, and I don't understand. if Oly stays out of playoffs, maybe. Same thing with Itoudis. I don't think it's gonna happen during the season, if it ever happens.

    that's too heavy emphasis on half-season results, which does not actually mean that much. Many Efes fans for example want Ataman out at the end of the season, even though he seems to have improved the results considerably.

    Blatt's position is secure, no matter what happens this year.

    Ataman sent right players end of season and created almost best team in this short period. I dont like him as a person, but not many of coaches could do what he did.

    Ataman is doing "generally" good job, but losses against Real Madrid at home and Barca away was mostly by his poor coaching. On the other hand win vs Fenerbahce was by his good coaching.
    The point that I criticize him is overusing some players too much - Micic, Dunston, Moerman. They are used 30+ minutes on all games (domestic & euroleague) and not giving enough chance to local players...

    Do they think losing to Dacka is such a big deal? We have terrible losses every season. The worst one was when Davide Pascolo of all people obliterated us a couple years ago.

    I can only speculate that they may be thinking Oly's record this year, as a powerhouse and after hiring a top coach like Blatt, is not as impressive (as they expected). so they may be thinking Oly fans/managers are not happy.

    I'd really like a win for Žalgiris, because already too many games lost at home to expect top 8,and always pleasant to win versus CSKA, but this has really few chances to happen. As you said Kaunas is in a bad situation because of all those important injuries, but in addition to that, CSKA is/was in a bad strike and will clearly need to end that and start 2019 with a victory.

    Baskonia does a very respectable job as always despite their absentées. We got the 20 points difference too early and thought the game ended, which resulted in terrible defense. Offense didn't function with Sloukas and Guduric out too.

    Worst CSKA ever?

    Maybe it's time to Vatutin bring back ''choke'' Teodosic.

    CSKA had 5/5 from behind 6.75, now they have 6/19. And Hacket is a joke of player. He should play in eurocup.

Pitino starts to appreciate the Euroleague and the brand of basketball which is being played here. He is starting to understand the gravity of basketball in Europe. At least I got this sentiment from the press conference. If he doesn't get a job in the NBA, he might stay.
    PAO main problem is the owner. He didnt let Pascual work in peace, and I doubt he does with Pitino. You need stability if you want to do something. Laso's first season was horrible (out in TOP16 by Siena and Bilbao), Obradovic also was out in TOP16 in his first season at Fenerbahçe.

    Very true, there is a problem with the impatience of the owner. But Pascual was at Pao for two years and they were clearly not becoming better. Don't forget that Pascual inherited a Top 8 team, even with Djorjevic and Pedoulakis. Although, ofcourse, they still had Diamantidis. Obradovic had a bigger challenge with Fener as they were not even play off material. But ofcourse, both him and Laso have a huge budget. Pascual didn't, neither does Pitino. That said, I never though Pascual was a bad coach, generally fans in Greece consider him a good coach.

    It's not about the patience. Whoever build the roster is guilty. No C and believing too much in the worst shooter in the Euroleague. Calathes is unplayable at the moment.
