Did you know? Regular Season Round 27
Record day against Efes

The Buducnost squad has roots in Turkey
When Buducnost lands in Turkey for this game, several men on the plane will be returning to a country where they once lived. Coach Jasmin Repesa's first job outside his native Croatia was with Tofas Bursa back in 1997 and he won a pair of Turkish League titles. James Bell, Earl Clark and Devin Williams have all played for clubs in Istanbul, too.
Forging new rivalries
Before the start of the season, the Reds had won the only two games they had played against Bayern. This will only be their fourth duel.
Going back to Barcelona
Marcus Eriksson and Xavier Rabaseda both played for Barcelona in the past. Now they travel back to Barcelona with Gran Canaria to face their former team.
New foes despite the circumstances
Even though both teams participated in the EuroCup several times, they have not met since the 2000-01 season. This will be just their fourth game against each other.
Panathinaikos set three club records playing against Baskonia. In 2016 it was total rebounds, 51; in 2013, it was assists, 31, and three-pointers made, 18.
Switching roles for Saras
In December of 2004, Sarunas Jasikevicius hit 14 free throws, setting a Maccabi club record while playing against Zalgiris, the team he coaches now.
Real Madrid has won all of its EuroLeague home games against Milan this century, although the visitors were able to take a victory back from the Spanish capital in the 2003 EuroCup.
