    Zalgiris Kaunas - Panathinaikos OPAP Athens Highlights | Turkish Airlines EuroLeague RS Round 19 Today 18/1/2018 , In a hard-fought battle, Zalgiris Kaunas rallied from a first-half double-digit deficit to down the visiting Panathinaikos OPAP Athens 82-69 at the Zalgirio Arena on Friday night


    To win this game, Zalgiris will have to refind their offence as defence has always been good for them this season. They will need to ruin Pao‘s attacks and try to organise some fast break points. Zalgiris roller over Siauliai 104-61 in King Mindaugas‘ Cup on Tuesday, playing very high tempo. I am sure Jasikevicius will try to play a bit faster than usual in this game, because offence is the key playing Pao.

     Since Pittino arrived, Panathinaikos have become predictable and boring as hell offensively, so if Zalgiris don‘t get involved into their slow pace game then they should nick this win. Jasikevicius is likely to be one of the most important factors for Zalgiris in this game, because he‘s an old hand guy in European basketball, while Pittino is only getting his feet warmed up and is still lacking consistency in his tactical decisions, which is normal for a newbie in European basketball.
    I believe Zalgiris may explode today and take a win by more than 2-point differencial.
