Olympiacos vs Gran Canaria
Olympiakos in their last away game at Barcelona did what they did already few times this season on the road, slowed down the game, I see similar pattern to Fenerbahce, but at home they do not play that way and against Gran Canaria which started playing defense I still can't see Olympiakos be stopped under 85 points, they will shoot better and in the paint they have significant advantage in their men against the average ones of Gran Canaria, so 20+ points a QT from Olympiakos should be expected. I don't expect Real Madrid kind of pace but I expect preciseness from them where they all feel dominant, after all they already beat Efes Pilsen and Real Madrid at home. On other side will be Gran Canaria a team that suffered a hard defeat in their last game against Baskonia, they were simply not allowed to shoot much from 3pt and they missed lots of chances. Their coach was actually saying the right thing to them, "Go inside and draw a foul and go to free throw line", but Baskonia was too much in that game. But I do expect from Gran Canaria to perform better in this game, since Olympiakos allowed Efes to shoot three pointers I believe Gran Canaria will have their chances this way. Of course Ericsson and company should collect points, they proved they can do it in Milano so I believe them even after a bad game in last round. Since Olympiakos will probably be in the lead throughout the game I don't see them going into defense mode too much, I see a similar game like they had against Budućnost. It was 92:70 but only this time I see Gran Canaria score more, at least 7-8 points. I can see 91:78 result in this game and thus simply going over this line.
