THE TAKE

First place in Group D could be decided by this encounter between Round 1 winners. Olympiacos returns home after a strong game by its perimeter weapons, who were aided by the defensive toughness of the big guys. Laboral goes on the road after shooting great in its home opener. The game will be a test for one of the league’s best young point guards, Thomas Heurtel, who will, face former MVP Vassilis Spanoulis as well as Kostas Sloukas, Vangelos Mantzaris and Oliver Lafayette. Heurtel is joined by Fernando San Emeterio and former Olympiacos player Doron Perkins in the Labroal backcourt. Swingman Matt Lojeski could play a big role for the hosts, too. The visitors have lots of weapons at forward, including sharpshooter Davis Bertans, Toko Shengelia and Ryan Gomes, though a clear hierarchy has not yet been established. Othello Hunter and Bryant Dunston anchor Olympiacos inside, where they’ll confront Colton Iverson and DJ White. Both teams have confidence, depth and the great talent necessary to deliver an exciting game.

Quotes Head Coaches

CRESPI, MARCO
Laboral Kutxa Vitoria
"One of the keys to face Olympiacos will be being serious in defense. I think that my whole career, my teams always hadthe best defense in the competition. I think that more than technique, the key is the attitude of the players. To defend you don't have to adapt, you simply are serious or you aren't. Olympiacos has won two Euroleague titles recently and an even better roster than last season. Everyone looks at Spanoulis, in his offensive plays in the important moments and how he makes his teammates play better offense. However, he is also a great defender."

Players

CAUSEUR, FABIEN
Laboral Kutxa Vitoria
"We must look ahead. It's important that the team keeps its head high. We must work a lot, it's true, but in Olympiacos we have the chance to play a good game against one of the best teams in Europe. We want to play well. In the Euroleague and domestic competition everything passes by so fast and we cannot look for excuses. We want to win, there is no other option, and we are working for that."
