Results of the 34th Euroleague Round: Day One Recap.

Results from the 34th Euroleague Round: Day One Recap.

Yesterday’s results didn’t offer anything particularly exciting; the favorites won, either comfortably or by overcoming challenges. While some matches brought heartbreak for fans of teams desperate for a win, like Panathinaikos and Monaco, others likely had an easier time against their rivals. All eyes were on Efes, who secured their entry into this year’s Euroleague play-in with an iconic 100-55 victory over Crvena Zvezda. Less attention was paid to the Maccabi vs Armani Milan game and the Zalgiris vs Real game, as the outcomes wouldn’t affect the final ranking of the teams.

Zalgiris vs Real Madrid.

The game held little significance for both teams; perhaps the home team, Zalgiris, sought a win for psychological and prestige reasons. However, despite the absence of F. Campazzo from Real, the visiting team secured a hard-fought victory on Kaunas’ turf. The match unfolded with a sluggish pace and resulted in a relatively low score. Real emerged victorious with a narrow 62-64 win.

Monaco vs Bayern Munich.

We previously analyzed the game in an earlier article, but for now, it’s important to note that Monaco began the game with considerable strength, building a 22-point lead by halftime. However, there appeared to be some slackness from the home team’s players, allowing Bayern Munich the chance to mount a comeback and narrow the gap to just 2 points with seconds remaining. Ultimately, Monaco clinched the victory with a score of 89-85, calming their fans’ frayed nerves after they had been on the brink of despair.

Efes vs Crvena Zvezda.

In the game between Efes and Crvena Zvezda, a scenario similar to Monaco’s match against Bayern Munich didn’t unfold. Efes asserted their dominance from the outset, demonstrating their determination to secure a spot in the play-in. They achieved victory by one of the largest margins witnessed in this year’s Euroleague, with a commanding score of 100-55.

Maccabi Tel Aviv vs Armani Milan.

A evenly matched game unfolded, with neither team feeling the need to aggressively pursue victory. Armani Milan had no opportunity to enter the play-in following Efes’ win last week, and Maccabi already secured the 7th place in this year’s Euroleague. Despite this, it was an enjoyable match, characterized by free-flowing play. The home team, Maccabi, ultimately emerged victorious with a score of 92-86.

Panathinaikos vs Alba Berlin.

Alba Berlin posed a challenge for Panathinaikos, especially with C. Koumadje dominating the frontline, causing headaches for the Panathinaikos coach. However, E. Ataman effectively contained him by deploying C. Atentokounmpo, who delivered an outstanding performance. Surprisingly, by the end of the 3rd quarter, Alba Berlin had taken the lead despite missing several key players in last night’s game. Perhaps underestimating their opponent, Panathinaikos mounted a comeback in the 4th quarter, led by Kendrick Nunn, who scored 28 points and emerged as the star of the game. They ultimately secured the win with a score of 84-75, securing 2nd place in the Regular Season and now await their opponent in the Playoffs.

Here are the results from the 1st day of the 34th Round.

  • Zalgiris vs Real Madrid: 62-64
  • Monaco vs Bayern Munich: 89-85
  • Efes vs Crvena Zvezda: 100-55
