Maccabi vs Panathinaikos: Game 3 Recap.

In a game that encompassed various dynamics, Maccabi emerged victorious with a final score of 85-83. Right from the onset, Maccabi displayed superior energy, establishing their tempo on the court. They seized an early lead of 23-11 in the first quarter, underscoring their determination to secure the win.

Conversely, Panathinaikos struggled, committing numerous offensive errors, particularly evident in K. Sloukas’s inability to score any points. It took them considerable time to devise effective strategies against Maccabi’s formidable defense.

Despite Panathinaikos’s subpar performance, trailing by as many as 18 points at one stage, they staged an impressive comeback in the final two minutes of the game. Led by the stellar performances of K. Nunn and I. Papapetrou, they managed to level the score at 83-83, erasing a prior 10-point deficit.

However, in the closing moments of the game, contentious calls by the referees sparked challenges from Panathinaikos, ultimately granting Maccabi an opportunity to secure the lead with two free throws from L. Brown, bringing the score to 85-83. With a mere 2.8 seconds remaining, Panathinaikos mounted one final offensive, with Kentrick Nunn attempting a three-pointer that unfortunately missed.
