Crvena zvezda vs Panathinaikos by Robert
Crvena Zvezda (CZ) will try to take first win in Euroleague. It will be more than tough to beat experienced Panathinaikos (PAO) team. PAO started the season slowly by losing to Lietuvos Rytas. Despite the loss, they are moving forward and they look better and better after every day. Surprisingly, PAO like to play attacking basketball. They do not control the ball for a long time, they just try to score the ball pretty fast. As CZ is pretty young team I think that PAO should try to outscore them.
CZ will play at home court which is insane. The fans are just great. I think that CZ has a great chance to try to win this game, first game in Euroleague. They will be fired up. It will be difficult for CZ to stop Bramos or Diamantidis, but for PAO it will more than tough to stop 220cm big guy Boban Marjanovic who is having double figures in his stats sheet in back to back games. Boban improved a lot since he left Zalgiris. He is quicker in offense and got some post moves. He knows how to use his height and it will be tough to stop him.
As PAO is favourites but CZ want to win more than anything I see this game nervous but well scoring one. CZ averaging 83 ppg, PAO averages 89 ppg, but today I expect them score more than 151 pts.
