The Take

Two teams looking to move up in the standings clash Friday when Panathinaikos Superfoods Athens welcomes Galatasaray Odeabank Istanbul to Olympic Sports Center Athens. The Greens enter the game in the middle of the standings with a 5-5 record, but are 4-1 at home. Galatasaray started the season with five straight losses, but has won three of five since to move up in the standings, though Coach Ataman’s men have yet to win on the road. Point guard Nick Calathes (13.0 ppg., 5.3 rpg., 6.9 apg., 1.4 spg.) has been Panathinaikos’ s most-dangerous player as he contributes in every area and he recently regained the services of backcourt mate Mike James when the latter returned from injury. Sharpshooter K.C. Rivers (11.1ppg.) and James Feldeine are also dangerous premiers scorers, while forwards Chris Singleton (11.3 ppg., 5.5 rpg.), Demetris Nichols and Kenny Gabriel join All-EuroLeague center Ioannis Bourousis up front. Galatasaray’s top scorers are also guards with Justin Dentmon (12.3 ppg.) and Sinan Guler (10.8 ppg., 5.6 apg.) leading the way followed by small forward and Vladimir Micov (9.9 ppg.) and Blake Schilb. Alex Tyus (9.2 ppg., 5 rpg.) and Tibor Pleiss play big roles inside, too. Though not known for its defense, Galatasaray has held opponents below 70 points in each of its last two games. For the season, Panathinaikos has limited the opposition to the fifth- fewer points (78.3 ppg.) in the league this season, so expect defense to play a major role this time.
