Olympiacos advances to the Final Four after a significant victory against Barcelona.

Olympiacos achieved what few teams could and secured a victory against Barcelona with a final score of 59-63. The game unfolded at a sluggish pace, characterized by intense duels, resulting in a low-scoring affair consistent with previous matchups between the two teams, as we had predicted in our analysis. Barcelona initially established an 8-point lead, their largest of the game, but struggled to maintain it. Olympiacos once again found scoring solutions, with Nicola Milutinov standing out with 10 points and 10 rebounds. Despite Nico Laprovittola’s individual efforts against Olympiacos’ tight defense, contributing 17 points and 7 rebounds, Barcelona fell short of advancing to the Final Four. Alex Abrines also delivered an impressive performance, tallying 13 points and 7 rebounds. However, both Jabari Parker and Jan Vesely struggled under Olympiacos’ defensive pressure, resulting in a subdued output.

Olympiacos will now face Real Madrid, the team that thwarted their Euroleague title aspirations last year with a buzzer-beating basket by S. Llull. The matchup is scheduled for May 24, 2024, at 19:00 (UTC).
