TIME OFF: Intensity of the playoffs makes it necessary for players to clear their minds, and there are not many better things to use your free time between the games than to visit the sights of the beautiful St. Petersburg.
THAT TIME OF THE YEAR: Milan guard Malcolm Delaney summed it up the best.
FINAL FOUR BOUND: CSKA Moscow clinched a spot in its ninth consecutive Final Four with a sweep of Fenerbahce.
ALL EYES ON THE PLAYOFFS: Apart from CSKA, the other three series are going into Game 5. So many current and former EuroLeague stars, from Luka Doncic and Bojan Bogdanovic, to Jordan Loyd and Peyton Siva, or even Barcelona soccer superstar Antoine Griezmann, enjoyed all the playoff drama.
GAME 3 CORNER: Barcelona re-gained home-court advantage with a win in St. Petersburg, while Bayern and Real kept the series alive, with Real mounting a historic late-game comeback against Anadolu Efes Istanbul
GOING INTO GAME 5: Real and Bayern had huge comebacks to force Game 5, while Zenit dominated Barcelona to send their series into a decider, too.
