Live from OAKA:

In a game which just ended Panathinaikos manage to win at the end the tough team of Zalgiris with 67-66 and succeeded its first victory in the Top-16. In a thrilling game, the home team of Panathinaikos in a crowded OAKA (14.800 fans) without Sofoclis Schortsianitis and with 3D - Dimitris Diamantidis playing only for 3 minutes, took a double digit lead at the mid of the second period and closed the half time with a +10. But in the third period, the Greens blacked out and the Lithuanians of Zalgiris balance the game in all the edges since they dominated in the rebounding area in both edges.

The tough defenses was the main element for both teams as they ended the third period with 11-16 for Zalgiris and Panathinaikos remaining in the game mainly due to the long shots by
Michael Bramos (197-G/F-87, college: Miami, OH) who was a pure killer from behind the arc (4 of 5 at that stage). With the score being 54-49, the Greens closed the third period with a +5 but with great issues in the defensive rebounds as the Lithuanians of Zalgiris were renewing their offences quite often.

The fourth and most stimulating period found the Lithuanians from an early stage not only to balance the game in total 7.59' before the end but being in the leading position since the Greens couldn't score at all for more than 4 minutes, so Zalgiris with Ksistof
Ksistof Lavrinovic (210-C-79) scoring a thrilling three pointer (the ball bounce twice in the iron) took the lead 56-59, 4.35' before the end, while with Popovic in one of his "without logic" three pointers increase the deficit to +4, 3.46 before the end (58-62) the remaining minutes were breathtaking since Jason Kapono (201-F-81, college: UCLA) scored both the free throws (earlier on Gist and Banks lost the 3 out of 4 from the charity line) and Ksistof Lavrinovic (the fatal player at the end, kept the deficit to +4 with his 13th point, 60-64 and 3.10' before the end. Banks, though scored the most crucial basket of the game since his three pointer found the target in a no time fro Greens offence to change the momentum and give a deep breath to the home team. Ibrahim Jaaber (187-PG-84, college: Pennsylvania) and Stephane Lasme (203-F-82, college: Massachusetts) scored a pair of baskets but Ksistof Lavrinovic missed an easy basket in the paint to give the chance to Banks to bring the game in balance as he scored the one of two free throws. The last 1.08' of the game, the two teams either due to their tough defense or because of lack of temper, lost many shots while Stephane Lasme was the one to score the last point of the game since he missed once more the 1of 2 free throws to reach the final 18 seconds and Popovic false ball, which Panathinaikos never took an advantage of since Banks called an offensive foul over Jaaber but the final shot by Ksistof Lavrinovic (with not real defense on the shot since Michael Bramos was at least a meter away) missed the shot and gave to the Greens the exciting victory.

Periods: 22-13, 43-33, 54-49, and the final 67-66

Top scorers:

Panathinaikos:
Jason Kapono 16, Michael Bramos 15, Stephane Lasme 14 while it is worth mentioned the 8 assist by Ukic
