In the wake of Game 3’s contentious encounters at the SEF, where Olympiacos faced off against Barcelona, the spotlight now shifts to the officiating crew, Belosevic, Difala, and Nedovic. However, instead of returning to the familiar confines of Greece, they’re slated to oversee a pivotal clash between Panathinaikos and Maccabi in Belgrade.

The recent Euroleague playoffs have been rife with drama, with Greek teams like Panathinaikos and Olympiacos finding themselves embroiled in disputes over referee decisions. Following a wave of complaints and a formal objection from Panathinaikos, the Euroleague weighed in, addressing key incidents, including a debated step out of bounds by Josh Niebo and a 5-second violation during a throw-in phase by Satoransky.

Despite the contentious nature of recent matchups, the focus now shifts to the upcoming game in Belgrade, where Panathinaikos and Maccabi are set to renew hostilities. With the same referee trio from the Olympiacos-Barcelona showdown officiating this critical encounter, anticipation is high for another night of intense Euroleague action.
