    Happy new year everybody

    I'm curious to see what will happen at Oly-Fener game. A must-win game for both if they are still thinking about top-8. Opposite strengths and weaknesses. It would be interesting.

    Btw, why has Lauvergne disappeared? Will Fener play without a center?

    Almost. Fener will play with a small line up changing Williams and Kalinic on five.

    Malcolm Thomas is also there, probably even starting C, cause there is no one else to play against Milutinov, if latter will play

    Kemzura seems a bit anxious with the EL's announcements about the recent ref's mistakes against Fener. He said something like "I hope the refs will be cool-headed and brave, so they will take the right decisions". Really original statement coming from a coach of the home team,the day before the match

    (edit)
    I found this one in English, a bit different than the translation on Greek sites:

    “I just hope all those statements [by EuroLeague] won’t affect any referees. The referees who will be officiating the game. I want to believe that it will not affect not any big names or something. That they will be fair enough and call the game in the right way.”

    Our PF/C rotation for the foreseeable future is: Thomas, Williams, Datome (!), Kalinic (!!)

    Vesely is still training on his own, Lauvergne is cut (coach's decision), and Düverioğlu has an ankle sprain

    Wilbekin and Hunter had a practice yesterday, and flew to Kaunas with the team. Jackson and Raynolds had couple of practices as well, so they might take part in the game as well.

    we cant always ask for 20 points by wil. today we absolutely need 20 point by dorsey. he can. sfair is clearely hardly trying to let him understand what euro bball is. we need he will understand it soon. tonight, with all problems we have, hope he will really show he learned it. tonight we would also need some better offensive match by zoosman. i was really convicted he could be an el rising star. offensively he didnt show offensive improvement as i tought. also avdjia .great players . we need points by him too.
    i'm highly focused on tonight match considering would have great impact on our future with all problems we have, loosing in kaunas could say of probems we cant solve in future, since market is closed. to win tonight i guess it means we will get playoffs easely, altoguth i think we cant get (as i tought) home court adv without black-diba

    judging by his attitude in Darussafaka, that means Wilbekin will play.

    happy new year everyone!

    reynolds debut . after i saw planninic iverson Onuaku lasme, i sure can see reynolds. he showed some potential, but he never confirm he could be an el player.

    Not questioning the decision, but this probably costed the Valencia game.

    Now, if I were playing EL Fantasy, the first player I'd pick this week would be Milutinov.

    Quite predictable round except Oly-Fener game.
    With Milutinov Oly has big adventage under basket because he will eat williams. Second question is if williams will try 5-10 3pt shoots with low percentage or Datome will do this job. It's up to Sloukas. Those two costed us a game against Valencia with lost ball and unsportsmanlike foul after that.
    55-45 for Oly if Milutinov is 100% fit

    I agree because with him instead of williams we would probably win the game. But in situation when we obviously can't cut williams or Sloukas then Lauvergne is the victim.

    He was even good in last games but he payed the price for all before that. I don't regret from just one reason. Player who isn't capable to shoot ft at least in mediocre level should not play basketball.

    Reading some comments from Pao players, I think that they truly believe they can win in Moscow. They see this match as a chance to redeem themselves after the last losses.
    Slim chance imo but I expect them to give everything they have for the restart.
