IT’S PLAYOFF TIME! Yes, it’s finally here, and the podcast crew is right with you, to preview everything that’s about to go down as eight teams look to book their ticket to the Euroleague Final Four in Istanbul.
This is Part One, where Austin, George and Rob break down #2 CSKA Moscow vs #7 Baskonia Vitoria-Gastiez and #4 Panathinaikos vs #5 Fenerbahçe, and of course give our stone cold certain picks for each series.
Look out for Part Two dropping soon after for #3 Olympiacos vs #6 Anadolu Efes and #1 Real Madrid vs #Darussafaka Dogus.
00:00 – 20:00: Intro and CSKA Moscow vs Baskonia
Can Larkin and Beaubois unsettle the unflappable CSKA backcourt? If CSKA has a weakness, is Baskonia the team to exploit it? Can anyone win in Moscow?
20:00 – 40:00: Panathinaikos vs Fenerbahçe
The last coach to win a playoff series for Panathinaikos was… the legendary Zeljko Obradovic, who happens to lead their opponent Fenerbahçe, who are looking to return to the Final Four for a third successive year, and in Istanbul no less.
Will homecourt advantage be decisive? Twitter beef, big game players, small ball, big balls….
