Olympiacos vs Baskonia Preview


Olympiacos is coming off an impressive campaign in the Euroleague where it placed third in the regular season and eventually finished runner-up to Fenerbahce. 

Several players return this season led by Greek national team mainstays Vassilis Spanoulis, Georgios Printezis and Kostas Papanikolaou. Also back are Nikola Milutinov, Evangelis Mantzaris, Vassilis Toliopoulos, Ioannis Papapetrou and Dimitrios Agravanis along with head coach Giannis Sfairopoulos. Spanoulis, however, has been ruled out of this game due to a knee injury.

Olympiacos lost Erick Green, Daniel Hackett, Matt Lojeski and Patric Young in the offseason but the Greek giants signed NBA veterans Hollis Thompson and Brian Roberts along with Jamel McLean, Kim Tillie, Georgios Bogris and Janis Strelnieks.

Baskonia also made the playoffs last season before being swept by CSKA Moscow in the best-of-five series. 

The Spanish club made some changes in the offseason. Former Argentinian playmaker Pablo Prigioni has been appointed as head coach to replace Sito Alonso while Tillie, Ricky Ledo, Adam Hanga and Jaka Blazic have switched clubs.

Left to carry the Vitoria-Gasteiz side are Rodrigue Beaubois, Tornike Shengelia, Johannes Voigtmann, Ilimane Diop and Tadas Sedekerskis. 

They will team up with new recruits Matt Janning, Patricio Garino, Jordan McRae, Jayson Granger, Marcelinho Huertas and Janis Timma. McRae, however, will miss the start of the season due to a shoulder injury sustained in a preseason game. Garino is also sidelined in this game.

Olympiacos won both meetings against Baskonia last season and has taken five in a row in the series.
