Panathinaikos vs Kao Drama by Tullamore
The Greens didn't perform well, specially at the first half, but there were some spots that indicate this team's rock solid desire to achieve. I am talking about the newcomer Pappas, who is trying to convince everyone that he didn't come to astonish a seat on the bench, but be key part of the green machine. This guy, alongside with those who considered to be "second-role" players, proved the depth of this roster.
KAOD is visiting Athens with 2-1 record and will leave the capital with 2-2, no doubt. The team is playing good basketball, considering its roster virtues and after the defeat at the opening game by Aris at Drama, it rolled and took 2 important victories.
The stats tell us, that this will be a game with low score. Panathinaikos has scored just 74 points at the only home game it played and allowed 35. Pedoulakis was with foam at the mouth at the first half at Belgrad and many of you will suppose that the coach will push his players to improve their defense here.
I say, that this is not how thing work at basketball. Panathinaikos needs to enjoy it and leave the tense behind. The A1 games work as a mentaly treatment for these guys who have a protagonistic role at Euroleague. They will not slow it down today. They will try to win by as much as they can.
The line is fair, if you ask me. I expect Panathinaikos to score 90+ points here.
