The Take

The stakes will be as high as ever on Thursday when Fenerbahce Istanbul (10-7) welcomes Panathinaikos Superfoods Athens (10-7) to the Fenerbahce Ulker Sports Arena. This will be the 20th time that these teams meet in EuroLeague competition; Fenerbahce leads the head-to-head standings to dte 13-6. The last game between them was in December when Panathinaikos won 81-70 thanks to 16 points, 8 rebounds and 11 assists star point guard Nick Calathes. For Fener, James Nunnally had 21 points. Both teams like to base their game on slow tempo and strong defense, as neither scores more than 80 points on average, but both defenses fare among the top five in the league. Coach Zeljko Obradovic has a trio of aces in Ekpe Udoh (12.2 ppg., 7.5 rpg.), Bobby Dixon (11.4 ppg., 3.2 apg.) and Kostas Sloukas (11.4 ppg., 4.9 apg.) while coach Xavi Pascual has a clear leader in Calathes (13.1 ppg., 5.0 rpg., 6.4 apg., 1.9 spg.), helped by Mike James (12.4 ppg.) and KC Rivers (11.9 ppg.). The visitors will try to repeat their performance from the game in Athens to try to turn their last win into another winning streak, especially with the recent addition of Alessandro Gentile, who already scored 15 points with the Greens last week. The hosts have lost four of their last six games, and are looking to turn things around. First, Bogdan Bogdanovic was finally back to action after a serious injury, and the team just brought in Anthony Bennett to help in the paint. He will find tough competition inside with the likes of Chris Singleton and Antonis Fotsis, but both Jan Vesely and Pero Antic will be the help that Bennett needs to adjust to the EuroLeague faster. There's no possible prediction for a game that promises to be one of the highlights of the week.
