The match

Bad start from Aris, who allowed Cluj to lead 9-0 in the first three minutes. The “yellows” broke the… pomegranate in the game with a three-pointer by Toliopoulos and immediately reacted with individual scores of 1-11, for the overtake (10-11), in the 5th minute. Then, Galinat also entered the equation with the team of Kastritis going to +3 (15-18), but the bad defense in the last two minutes gave the Romanians the opportunity to close the first period in front (23-22).

Aris also started the second quarter with mistakes and wrong choices, with Cluj making individual scores of 11-2, for +10 (34-24), until 14′. The “yellows” responded with a 5-0 run (34-29), but from that point on, the Romanians were in control and steadily maintained their lead, going to the locker room with +7 (45-38).

The Thessaloniki team was “hurt” by the lost rebounds at the beginning of the second half, with the hosts escaping to +13 (55-42), at 23′. The sequel was even worse for Aris, as the Jones-Stipanovic duo did more “damage”, with Cluj reaching +22 (74-52) and thereby completing the third quarter (76-54).

Cluj even reached +24 (80-56) at the start of the fourth quarter and then relaxed. This was taken advantage of by Aris, who with Harrell and De Souza made a reaction and reduced the difference enough (85-74), in the 38th minute. However, nothing changed dramatically until the end and so he experienced the defeat with a score of 90-74.
