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

The Regular Season of the Turkish Airlines Euroleague has concluded, and we have now entered the play-in and playoffs stages. There were no major surprises in the results of the 34th round, except for Baskonia’s significant victory at home against Virtus Bologna, securing the Spaniards 8th place while relegating the Italians to 10th. You can find the results and analysis of the matches from the first day of the 34th round here. Another noteworthy match from day two was Olympiacos’ clash against Fenerbahce at the Peace and Friendship Stadium. Both teams provided a formidable test ahead of the playoffs and demonstrated their readiness to confront any challenge.

Olympiacos Vs. Fenerbahce.

A small final took place at the Peace and Friendship Stadium, Olympiacos’ home ground, with both teams eager to secure victory while also testing their conditioning. The game was highly contentious, marked by numerous shifts in momentum on the scoreboard. However, in the end, the home team clinched victory in overtime with a score of 84-81. Isaiah Canaan showcased excellent form, and we witnessed the significant return of Nikola Milutinov for Olympiacos. On the Fenerbahce side, once again Nigel Hayes-Davis stood out, tallying 21 points. However, he was twice penalized for traveling violations during crucial attacks towards the end, essentially contributing to his team’s defeat.

Virtus Bologna Vs. Baskonia.

In the most thrilling match of the week, filled with several twists and turns in both the scoreline and emotions, Baskonia confirmed their strong physical condition by securing an away victory against Virtus Bologna. Markus Howard had a stellar performance, reminiscent of his showing against Real, as he once again delivered with 34 points, propelling his team to 8th place in the standings. They are now set to face Maccabi Tel Aviv in a single play-in game where the 7th place will be definitively decided. The loser of this match will then face the winner of Efes’ matchup against Virtus Bologna to determine the final 8th place position.

Meanwhile, Virtus Bologna finds themselves in poor form and struggling psychologically, marked by a negative streak of results that has inevitably led to their 10th place standing in the league.

Partizan Vs. Valencia.

Essentially, it was a match devoid of significance in terms of the standings. Both Partizan and Valencia had bid farewell to their hopes of qualifying for the play-in and playoffs following the previous Euroleague round, resulting in a relatively open game. Partizan dictated the pace from the third quarter onwards and clinched a comfortable victory with a score of 79-66. The focus of attention and speculation primarily surrounds Valencia for the upcoming season, as indications suggest they will be contending in the Eurocup rather than the Euroleague.

ASVEL Villeurbanne Vs. Barcelona.

Another game lacking interest for both teams ensued, with Barcelona having secured 4th place following Monaco’s victory, and ASVEL Villeurbanne lacking a clear target in the Euroleague for some time now. However, in their recent matches, they displayed noticeable improvements across all facets of play, emerging as a highly competitive team for the upcoming season. This was underscored by their performance against Barcelona, where the French team triumphed with a 76-72 victory.

Here are the results from the 2nd day of the 34th Round.

  • Olympiacos vs Fenerbahce: 84-81
  • Partizan vs Valencia: 79-66
  • Virtus Bologna vs Baskonia: 91-95
  • ASVEL Villeurbanne vs Barcelona: 76-72
