“It will be a very difficult and challenging series. We have the home-court advantage, but this doesn’t matter so much. We saw what happened last year.

Panathinaikos had the home-court advantage, but we qualified to the Final Four,” the experienced power forward/center said.

“Sergio will not be available for the playoffs, but hopefully he will be back on time for the Final Four. He is not happy with that, but there is no need for pressure, as he may be sidelined for a longer period of time,” Reyes added.

EuroLeague playoffs will start next Tuesday, April 16.
