He is returning to his European duties Olympic.
The “red and white” hosts at SEF the Anatolou Efes (26/10, 22:00, NovaSports Prime, News Bulletin 247, sport-fm.gr), for its 5th matchday Euroleague.
His team Giorgos Bartzokas comes from a big win against They were partisans, with a score of 98-94 in overtime. The way this result came, after a big lead by the Serbs and a buzzer beater by Nanali which sent the match to extra time, gave the “red and whites” the necessary psychology, who found calm in a difficult period.
Indeed, although the team’s results have been far from bad, the accumulated injury problems and the two defeats by Barcelona and Armani they brought a… negative atmosphere, however against Partizan this “disappeared” in a dynamic way.
Now, o Olympic is asked to capitalize on this victory with one more, against a team that is also going through a “turbulent” period. Indeed, the Effects makes a new beginning, for the first time in years without the man who “giant” her, Ergin Atamanbut also the player who “carried” her, Vasilij Micic.
The sample that Efes has given in the first 4 games of the season is mixed. Emre Can’s side got off to a disastrous start, with two heavy defeats by Barcelona (91-74) and Real Madrid (80-103). However, in the next two more playable matches of the “devil’s week”, he recovered with wins against Villerban (89-84) and Valencia (77-73).
Efes continues to rely on the “old” Shane Larkin, Will Clyburn, Rodrigue Beaubois, Elijah Bryant and Tibor Plaisnext to which the excellent last year has been added Darius Thompson, but also some “question marks”, such as Tyreke Jones, Derek Willis and Justus Holage. They are certainly not a team that… scares, but they have players who can make them dangerous, especially if they find an attacking rhythm.
As far as racing is concerned, Effects does not face significant problems, which is not the case for him Olympicwho will line up without them Luke Sikma and Shaquille McKissick. On the positive side, the Isaiah Canaanwho was absent from training on Tuesday (24/10) due to flu, will normally be available to Giorgos Bartzokas.
The dietary triad consists of Juan Carlos Garcia, Mehdi Difala and Milos Koliencicwho will whistle the match.
