  • “Two keys to Kaunas”
    day We are already on our way to Kaunas where tomorrow we are to face Zlagiris In what is almost certain to be a full house arena in view of fans that both know and love basketball And versus a team which we faced during the first round a team with which we meet again at the beginning of the Top16 second round Zalgiris Kaunas competitive performance little has changed since the first round game It brings out lots of energy on the floor likes to opt for a fast game and is great at fast breaks finishing attempts either behind lay ups or three point shots It has an array of excellent shooters the likes of Popovic player to lead Top16 in three point range having at least one good three in 52 out of 53 of his last Euroleague performances It has sharp scorers such as Kaukenas while a very important part of its game are its middle size guys players such as the Lavrinovic brothers who can get game either close to or at a distance from the basket behind the equivalent agility The only difference between first round game and this one is that Jankunas is sidelined for our hosts but Robertas Javtokas will be present for the occasion He is an athletic big man to offer strength into the Lithuanian defense inside the house with the ability to tamper with his opponents shots Overall defensively it is a team which plays behind great energy aiming to enforce pressure by pushing its rival to commit a turnover Zalgiris comes up even more effective when playing at home it aims to enforce pressure intercept run and get to an easy bucket It is a pace which suits it Moreover it is a team also quite pleasing when

  • Roko on fire, Dimitris an example
    the game We have already lost one game at home so it s very important to get the win tomorrow I think it s a different game than the one in the first round They play probably better than when they played us and I think or better I know that we play a lot better than we did when we played them in the first round so it s going to come down to details like every game especially in Euroleague We have to stop what they do best We have to hear to whatever the coach has to say We are hoping for a different result this time and that s why we are working really hard this week We are all trying to do our best But you will allow me a special mention to two of my teammates Roko Leni Ukic and Dimitris Diamantidis First about Roko Oh man He is on fire right now Last month he has probably played some of his best basketball It was difficult in the beginning for him He had to try to play a certain way Roko is talented he just had to fix some things and now he is on fire and we hope he stays that way laughing I really enjoy that It s really good to see a player that was struggling during his first period with the team to play like that now About Dimitris There is not much you can say about him He is first in almost every category he breaks records I think the best part about him is that he doesn t play for his stats He is such a talented guy that you will never know It s great to play with him one of the best players ever played

  • “Not a piece of cake”
    other The game didn t even start because they run against each other on the court We left the court So unfortunately I am a veteran Speaking about basketball I must say that it was the first title in my career Losing against Olympiacos already twice this year it was no fun But we put together our game at the right time and we started from the beginning great They are a good team and we expected them to fight back And they did But we responded and it was a great game at the end and a great first title for me Even when Olympiacos got ahead by one we had the confidence needed We were feeling comfortable on the court Even when they made the run I don t think we felt pressure And I think that it showed I believe it was a very important factor Our confidence never went down That s the biggest thing Luckily we responded with a run on our own and we came back to win the game The two defeats against Olympiacos had hurt our ego No one wants to lose a rivalry especially one like this in Greece but at the same time we had to look at our mistakes and I believe that our biggest mistake in both games was our confidence so we got into the game believing in ourselves we got a big lead and everything got better We spend so much time with each other and I think it was important too that we have such a good atmosphere that we communicate that well with each other There is a great relationship with everybody in the team Greeks foreigners It makes coming to practice every day so much easier we are on the phone with each

  • Mike, a great athlete and a great man
    enjoy even more the fact that the team has started to role more pleasingly The main reason is that we have geared up the intensity in training the level of practice has reached a higher level so this aids us in performing better in the games despite the hard work that is being done and the exhaustion that certainly exists We are still faced with certain focusing issues during the games but the thing is that we managed to get to the most important factor victory in these very games Personally I believed in the team from day one belief which I did not hide neither in my statements For me the paradox is not that we are winning now rather the fact that we couldn t do so in the beginning I had not anticipated the start off we committed I had not expected that thoughts would exist at a point even concerning if we would manage to qualify at all But even this helped the team It helped us coil becoming better try harder The ensuing season is even tougher and we need the equivalent intensity and even greater concentration These are two elements we will be aspiring towards also in the clash versus Khimki Anything is possible for the team Winning is exactly what we are after travelling to Moscow We have already got through to the next phase but we long for the first spot In reality either finishing up first either third doesn t change much as far as the synthesis of our Top16 group while certain positions will be defined notwithstanding our actions Anyhow we want to win we want to give our best and do anything in our power Before I leave you allow me to make a little reference to the clash

  • “Competing for Panathinaikos creates responsibilities”
    We will be communicating from this page throughout the season Preparation has been taking place for a month or so and is going well Practice sessions of large time length have been committed with extreme intensity but also with great eagerness on a daily bases quite a positive aspect The team to a pleasing extent has bonded Already great relations exist amongst us even though many new faces found themselves in the team and the season has yet to begin We players have already established a common code sufficient to aid us in getting through tough trainings Apart from training we have committed only a single friendly game across from an opponent faced with many absences not ready entirely Even there we proved to be in the mood of helping each other out on the floor what I see as one of the most important elements For friendly game 1 things played out really well regardless of the rival s inability to pose a measurable threat We did well noticed things that functioned well as we did on the other hand spot parts of our game we need to work on There is room for much improvement In Sofia we are expecting to see issues versus stronger opponents try out certain things and see results provided from our efforts so far Personally what I have to declare is that I am well pleased to be back in Greece close to my family raising my son next to my wife after us being essentially apart all season long last year And I am well pleased to be in Panathinaikos too The team is doing good up to date great aspiration exists in all players to bring forward positive results to create a strong union The fact that I am from now

  • A goal pending
    Greek League having yet another goal ahead before season s out And first step towards it is made versus Kolossos Rhodes It is a team which I believe is not accordingly represented by the rank it has in the league at the moment It has good and experienced players It has maintained Hatten in its roster and alongside him it has a swarm of great Greek players with tons of experience the likes of Kalabokis Koubouras Kalaitzis Georgalis Also it is quite a full squad when it comes to big men Kolossos mainly opts to create in the fast lane chases after primary fast breaks which it will attempt either through lay ups or shots seeing that it has quite a few great shooters that fail to hesitate to execute Further on it is a pick n roll team main creators Kalabokis and Hatten The two try to create in order to implement the rest of their teammates in the game The team has defensive principals but it mostly performs according to its opponent s abilities It adjusts to these abilities and hence reacts The main thing we must request is that the players comprehend that Euroleague is over and

  • Tough team
    Manolopoulos No comments Good evening We are approaching the encounter versus Alba Berlin Yet another important game for us as far as advancing to the next Euroleague phase Alba Berlin is a very tough team It plays aggressively in defense and tries to control the game pace It is not a team to opt to run a lot It will prefer set offenses more organized ones instead of going for a more up tempo rhythm Its main weapon in defense is posting ups It posts up a great deal and not only behind one or two players It is not only Thompson but the guards too or even Morley at SF position or Foster They are all as effective in this kind of game Its players are very competitive in general as far as offensive rebounds All players go to the ball hence being granter second chance offenses So for yet another occasion it is a department we will have to keep an eye on It has changed few things in its tactics since all we saw in first round The greatest change is Traore player to offer it one more solution at low post position What we had done
