Panathinaikos suffered a defeat against Maccabi in Game 1 of the Playoffs.

In an electrifying display of passion and intensity, Maccabi Tel Aviv clinched a hard-fought victory after trailing for the majority of the game. With outstanding performances from B. Colson and L. Brown, they orchestrated a comeback in the 4th quarter, securing a 87-91 win at OAKA. Panathinaikos now faces the challenge of reversing the situation, with the first step set for Thursday in the second leg. Adding to the narrative, the injury of W. Baldwin casts uncertainty on his availability for future games.

On the home front, K. Sloukas shone with a double-double, while M. Lessort asserted dominance beneath the basket. Here are the detailed player stats:
