PAOK BC vs Panathinaikos
Two teams that enter this game with quite opposite momentums; PAOK recorded another major win, 9th in their last 10 games, this time against Venezia at home (77-76) and improved their confidence even more ahead of this extremely tough game against the giants of the league. On the other side, Panathinaikos might have gotten the win against a much weaker Darussafaka side but once again their performance was far from solid, could have been in much bigger trouble in the last minutes of that game, as the struggle continues for their team.
PAOK is an extremely dangerous team and they have proven it time after time this season; they had an extra 2 days to rest and prepare for this one and they play at home, in a very hot arena which is expected to be very hostile today.
PAOK always starts his home games very strong, they have won the first quarter in every domestic game they played (4+2 cup).
PAOK faced Panathinaikos twice at home last season and they were leading after the first quarter in both games, which could very much happen once again, this time against a struggling Panathinaikos side while it's much-much safer with the extra 2 points of the handicap.
