The Take

Panathinaikos Superfoods Athens looks to bounce back from its first loss in a month when it hosts AX Armani Exchange Milan, which has dropped three in a row. The Greens are undefeated at home this season and have not lost a regular season home game in over a year. Milan is 1-4 on the road and 1-5 against Panathinaikos in Athens over the past decade. Point guard and November MVP Nick Calathes (14.0 ppg., 7.5 apg.) keeps the Greens flying high by distributing the ball to wingmen K.C. Rivers (10.9 ppg.) and Nikos Pappas (10.7 ppg.) and big guys James Gist (10.0 ppg.) and Chris Singleton. Milan point guard Jordan Theodore (12.7 ppg., 4.8 apg.) and Curtis Jerrells (13.6 ppg.) are the main scoring threats for the visitors, who also rely on savvy small forward Vladimir Micov. Kaleb Tarczewski (7.0 rpg.) and Arturas Gudaitis (10.5 ppg.) are Milan’s chief threats in the paint. By the numbers, the teams are remarkably similar on offense, however Milan concedes more points (84.4 ppg.) than any other team in the league. Nevertheless, Milan’s defense has been moving in the right direction in holding its opponents to 73 and 62 points in two recent games and another top defensive effort could make the difference in the Greek capital.
