Rob, Austin and George hadn’t caught up with reigning champions Fenerbahçe so far in this postseason, so it was about time that changed. Ruthless execution has so far overcome Baskonia’s rugged efforts. After going 2-0 up with some flawless late game action (a meaningless Sloukas travel apart…) can Fener close out the sweep in Vitoria-Gasteiz?
Elsewhere, Real Madrid put their blowout defeat in Game One in the rearview mirror, behind some creative post play from Reyes and Ayon and a gameplan to re-route the offense away from Luka Doncic, stifled in the opener by PAO’s physical defense. Do the Greens have the mentality to come back again or will Real close out at home?
1-1 is also the score between Olympiacos and Zalgiris, as the Reds shut down a large part of the Zalgiris offense that ran away with Game One. CSKA maintained their grip over crosstown rivals Khimki and are one game away from Belgrade. No Hines, no De Colo, so far no problem.
All of that, plus George commits mortal podcast sin and Austin calls out a studio gangster. Timestamps below….
