Anadolu Efes rallied past Olympiacos at home (75-65) and came closer to the home-court advantage in the playoffs (18-5).

The Turks made a better start (18-9), yet the Greeks went on an impressive 0-17 run to take the lead (18-26).

Since then, though, the hosts took control and conceded just 39 points in the remaining 28 minutes.

Even though the “Reds” attempted to turn things around (51-49, 62-59), the hosts stood tall, brought their lead close to double digits (68-59) and sealed the deal.

Five players scored in double figures for the winners, with Krunoslav Simon having a team-high 13 points.

Janis Strelnieks posted a game-high 14 points for the losing squad, with Nikola Milutinov adding 12 points and eight rebounds.

Anadolu Efes improved to 15-8 and now has the tie-breaker over Olympiacos. On the other hand, the visitors dropped to 12-11 and lost for the fourth straight time.
