The Take

Olympiacos hosts Fenerbahce in rematch of 2017 final

Olympiacos Piraeus (4-2) hosts Fenerbahce Beko Istanbul (2-4) at the Peace and Friendship Stadium on Thursday. Olympiacos remains undefeated at home, 4-0, led by Tyler Dorsey (13.8 ppg.), Sasha Vezenkov (11.8 ppg.) and Kostas Sloukas (10.3 ppg.). Fenerbahce is looking to avoid a third consecutive loss. Jan Vesely (12.0 ppg.) is its top scorer followed by Nando De Colo (11.0 ppg.) and Devin Booker (9.8 ppg.). It is a rematch of the 2017 Turkish Airlines EuroLeague Championship Game, in which Fenerbahce conquered its first - and to date only- continental crown. Fenerbahce is on a five-game winning streak against the Reds.

Marquee matchup: Olympiacos's Dorsey vs. Fenerbahce's De Colo

Tyler Dorsey leads Olympiacos Piraeus in scoring (13.8 ppg.) this season. In Round 5 against CSKA, Dorsey had 32 points and buried 7 three-point shots to tie a club record. He is also helping in other aspects of the game (3.0 rpg., 2.8 apg.) and has buried half of his 30 three-point attempts. Dorsey must use his athleticism, size and quick legs against Nando De Colo, a 2010-20 All-Decade selection and one of the best free-throw shooters in basketball history. De Colo is coming off the bench this season and averaging 11.0 points, 2.5 rebounds, 4.0 assists and 1.5 steals for a PIR of 13.5. They may have similar numbers, but Dorsey and De Colo are very different and can find advantages playing against each other.

Keys to victory: Olympiacos Piraeus vs. Fenerbahce Beko Istanbul

Olympiacos has been outrebounded in three of its four wins until now. In its most recent game against ALBA Berlin in Round 5, the German powerhouse pulled down 16 offensive rebounds. With Hassan Martin sidelines, Moustapha Fall and Livio Jean-Charles are expected to see extended playing time against a battery of Fenerbahce big men led by Jan Vesely, Devin Booker and Ahmet Duverioglu. As always, getting Sasha Vezenkov, Tony Dorsey and Kostas Sloukas involved on offense should be critical for the Reds.

Fenerbahce is allowing opponents to pull down 12.5 offensive rebounds per game. Part of that comes because Fenerbahce is holding opponents to just 27.2% shooting on their three-point shots, but the Turkish powerhouse must box out to get its transition game going through Pierria Henry and Nando De Colo. DyShawn Pierre has a size advantage at small forward and that may generate advantages against Dorsey and Shaquielle McKissic. Fenerbahce leads the league in turnovers forced (15.7 per game) and needs that kind of aggressiveness in this game.

Head Coaches

BARTZOKAS, GEORGIOS
Olympiacos Piraeus
“Fener is a very good team. They lost their last two games in the last possession to Barcelona and Real. However, I think that in those two games, they proved their dynamics and quality. They do have a full and quality roster. We will have to play with more intensity in defense. Last night, we might have had in mind that we were going to win anyway and our performance defense-wise was lacking. On offense, we had a pretty decent game. But, we should have played much more intense defense, harder and of course, this is what we need to do against Fenerbahce because they are a team with lots of talent, they have facilitation from the point guards, they have good scoring from their guards and very talented big players. Booker and Vesely are players at the ‘5’ and ‘4’ positions that play together and are very strong in rebounding, rim protection… Of course, they have weaknesses as well that we need to expose on the floor.”
DJORDJEVIC, SASA
Fenerbahce Beko Istanbul
"We expect our players to react, after the tough loss we had last night. In this back-to-back game against Olympiacos, recovering the physical energy and mental effort to keep fighting for the win is very important. So, I expect our players to do that. Olympiacos has leaders like Sloukas, Dorsey and Vezenkov and has been lifting up his game lately offensively. And we have to be really focused in understanding their strengths. Picking up our defense at the level of the last night again and understanding importance of some of their big men like Moustapha Fall, who is creating problems for the opponent teams at the beginning of the season. Olympiacos is a very experienced team, they know what to do especially in Athens, they play very strong. We have to expect our players to react and to have a good game tomorrow."

“Up until now our fans and our home court have helped us very much. We have made a good start. Tomorrow we play the fourth game in six days. Fenerbahce is a very good team with lots of talent. They are coming from a loss at the last second so they are definitely going to be determined. We need to leave fatigue behind, play a good game and limit the strong facets of our opponent, fastbreak being among them. They are a very talented team with a deep roster. I’m not going to focus on any individual player. I’m only going to say that we need to play as a team on both ends of the court. This is the most important factor so that you are able to beat teams like Fener.”
DUVERIOGLU, AHMET
Fenerbahce Beko Istanbul
"We are going to play against one of the toughest teams in EuroLeague to be played on the road. Olympiacos is a very good and experienced team. They have very solid and quality names in all positions. During the double-week games, they play both games at home and we, on the other hand, will travel to play this game after the tough Barcelona matchup. We played a good game against Barcelona but lost with a last-second shot. We need to keep our defensive toughness at the same level and fight in the same way. I believe we have been playing good basketball as a team and we want to start getting the results that we want to have. We will try to play our game and do our best to win this tough one in Athens."
