Poor night for Olympiakos in Istanbul

Poor night for Olympiakos in Istanbul

 

By George Georgakopoulos

Olympiakos will have to try again on Friday to grab its third victory over Anadolu Efes in Istanbul as the Turkish side beat the European champion 83-72 on Wednesday to cut the Reds’ lead to 2-1 in this best-of-five Euroleague quarterfinal series.

The Greeks were a shadow of their usual selves, especially in the second half, as they were uncharacteristically error-prone and suffered significantly in rebounds.
