I don't see Olybiakos having a significant problem with Siena, just as long as they don't underestimate them, that's one of the biggest mistakes one can make in international competition.

Well.. Seems like there's a clear favourite but when is McCalebb coming back? Cuz I think that with McCalebb they can actually make it or at least go to 5th game..

If Bo McCalebb comes back for the series then it could be very close games. It will be harder for Siena to win without McCalebb

Siena broke PAO's home advantage in 2009 but later lost both home games and got knocked out of the F4...

Hopefully Siena will show their best but they are underdogs. Unfortunately Kaukenas and McCalebb could not be 100% ready for this, but Lavrinovic playing well and all Siena's team is still one of these very well fixed European teams in terms of communication. Olympiacos is huge favourite anyway.

McCalleb and Kaukenas are there two key-players. Everything will depend on the fact if they can stay healthy during the series. If they don't play a lot it will be more difficult to win for Siena even with Lavrinociv and Zisis playing well

Can't remember that one team scored only 4 points in 1st quarter. Terrible game for Siena. Even with McCalebb, they wouldn't have much chance against Olympiacos.

Half time score: 47-9...



What a joke...

Well Olybiakos was certainly setting the records tonight! <img src='http://www.talkbasket.net/forums/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/rofl3.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='Rofl3' />



I've never, ever heard of any basketball team scoring only 9 points until half time!!!!! We're talking about women's bball, lower categories, kids, you name it. Maybe in the 6-8 years age range, something like that may be possible <img src='http://www.talkbasket.net/forums/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/rofl3.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='Rofl3' />



Siena presented itself as an all-time greatest loser, what a downright ultra-embarassment. You can't go further down than the bottom of the barrel <img src='http://www.talkbasket.net/forums/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/blink.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='Blink' />

Just wow... if Siena actually pays for the players return tickets, they are idiots. They should fine the shit out of them.

Just watched the whole game... just wow... It was like there was a lid on the basket opening wherever Siena was attacking <img src='http://www.talkbasket.net/forums/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/rofl3.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='Rofl3' /> The game got shitty close to the end of the second quarter, but the subs were playing mainly. Featured bloopers was Papanikolaou's dunk fail, plus Katsivelis fouling and throwing down Lavrinovic like he was a sack of you know what <img src='http://www.talkbasket.net/forums/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/rofl3.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='Rofl3' /> And Jaric! Long time forgot about him, and what do I see upon him entering the court again? Once more getting smacked in the face, similarly like Garbajosa gave him a humbling lesson years ago in Eurobasket when Jaric was trying to get fresh <img src='http://www.talkbasket.net/forums/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/rofl3.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='Rofl3' />



My guess is tonight that Siena MUST pull off a much better game... If not, then as Black Urum says, fine the shit outta them <img src='http://www.talkbasket.net/forums/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/laugh.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='Laugh' /> <img src='http://www.talkbasket.net/forums/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/laugh.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='Laugh' />

That was a huge disaster for Siena. I wonder their reaction tonight. They bottomed out and they need to save their face. It's not easy to beat Oly at their home court but they still have potential. At least I expect a challenging game for tonight.

I think Oly regret because of the first game now. They roused the sleeping lion.

Well what do you do when you have just faced the most embarassing defeat of all time?



Still, that's no excuse for Olybiakos, today's game was extremely bad form, typical of the unsettled nature of the team, one day up there, the other day down there.

In first game Montepaschi was not that team and they was bad day.But in second game they played very well.And maybe this will decided who will go on F4.

The advantage is now with Siena, however if Oly plays the game like it knows how to, the wins shouldn't come with too much difficulty.

This is what happens when two psycho teams play against each other.
