Bramos
Panathinaikos is still allive!! Traveling to Cantu without three of his players (Schortsianitis, Skordilis and Panko who were injured) and with the newcomer Marcus Banks (188-G-81, college: UNLV) with just a week in the team, Panathinaikos with an excellent Michael Bramos (197-G/F-87, college: Miami, OH) in his top career game (sank 7 three-pointers, including three in the final four minutes) in the Euroleague courts "escaped" from Pala-Desio with a dramatic 69-71 victory and is now with a 4-3 record closer to the Top 16.
The game was a derby from the early begining with Panathinaikos leading the first period with the poor 15-19. With Michael Bramos scoring his first three pointer to give the +4 at the end.
The second period the home team and more precise Alex Tyus (205-C-88, college: Florida) tied the game from inside the paint. On the other end, Michael Bramos and Dimitris Diamantidis (196-G-80) sank back-to-back triples and the visitors took a 21-25 advantage. After a timeout, Jonathan Tabu (184-SG-85) responded with a triple to make sure the hosts stayed within a single possession. Alex Tyus started to get hot as he twice traded layups with Marcus Banks, then had a fastbreak slam-dunk and finally got a lucky bounce on a hook shot to put Cantu up 32-30. Alex Tyus was also a significant defensive presence in the paint, causing a couple of turnovers and blocking 2 shots, which electrified the crowd. Panathinaikos still managed to get back in front due to a savvy steal from Banks and a layup from Ukic, while in the final seconds a layup from Jeff Brooks sent teams into halftime tied at 34-34.

Michael Bramos opened the third quarter with a triple, but Jonathan Tabu hit back-to-back shots from downtown on the way to 8 consecutive points for a 42-37 advantage. Panathinaikos wasted no time in responding and retaking the lead as Kostas Tsartsaris made a goal-foul and Ukic made a three-pointer. The seesaw battle continued with a long jumper from Brooks and a fastbreak layup from Aradori for 47-45. After Dimitris Diamantidis and Banks were perfect from the charity line, Aradori nailed a triple. Stephan Lasme scored inside and Michael Bramos beat the buzzer with a three-pointer to give Panathinaikos 50-54 lead going into the final 10 minutes.

The fourth and final period found Aradori cuting the Green lead with a floater as Cantu held the visitors scoreless for more than five minutes, including forcing turnovers on Panathinaikos's first four possessions in the quarter. Jonathan Tabu tied the game with a fastbreak layup, Maarten Leunen (206-F-85, college: Oregon) sank a triple and Alex Tyus capped a 9-0 Cantu run with a monster dunk. Banks ended the visitors' drought with a put-back-plus-foul and Michael Bramos sank a triple that cut the deficit to 61-60. With less than four minutes remaining, Alex Tyus made a jump-hook and Manuchar Markoishvili scored from downtown to make it a 6-point margin, but Michael Bramos and Dimitris Diamantidis answered with back-to-back triples to tie the score at 66-66. Dimitris Diamantidis then found Lasme for an uncontested dunk and a 2-point lead. Alex Tyus made a pair of free throws for anther tie. However, Michael Bramos hit his seventh three-pointer for 68-71, and it turned out to be the decisive basket. In the remaining 50 seconds, Jonathan Tabu split a pair of free throws to cut the deficit to 2, and after Cantu successfully defended the next Panathinaikos possession, Jonathan Tabu missed a potential game-tying jumper as time expired

Top scorers:
Cantu: Jonathan Tabu 22 with 8 assists, Alex Tyus 17, Maarten Leunen 14
Panathinaikos: Michael Bramos 21 points and 9 rebounds, Dimitris Diamantidis 15 with 4 rebounds, 7 assists and 1 steal, Marcus Banks 9 points, 2 rebounds, 3 assists, 2 steals

Interesting details of the game:

Panathinaikos without a real center dashed down 39 rebounds against just 22 for Cantu while and at the same time the Greens forced to 22 turnovers against only 9 of Cantu players
