Hard group for Partizan but they always find a way, I think they'll win all home games plus 1 away game and advance.

Sasha pavlovic rumored to Partizan.

Caveat: supposedly waiting until january 11th to receive a contract from an nba team when the roster registration for euroleague top16 expire. More will likely be known a day from now.

Tomic had his strongest performance of EL season so far. 21 points and 7 rebounds in 27 minutes....very nice

Real, Barcelona and Olympiacos games were all very good. Papaloukas was phenomenal (Fener never understood how to stop him and at some point they just quit); Vesely, Mirotic and Tomic showed they can perfectly have a NBA future; Maccabi and Barcelona showed they are the 2nd best and best team in Europe - Barcelona's ability to resist to Maccabi's full-court pressure makes them clear favourites in a final between these two teams though.

Quarter-Finals:

Olympiacos vs. Montepaschi - Will McCalleb play? If so, Siena in 4 games. If not, Oly in 5.

Pana/CajaLa/Rytas vs. Maccabi Electra - Maccabi will beat any of these teams. Caja Laboral would be their toughest opponent. Maccabi in 4 or 5.

Real Madrid vs. Fener or Valencia - Valencia needs to beat Fener by at least 3 points. I think Fener lacks mental toughness and chemistry, but Claver's missing is a bigger deal for Valencia. Anyway, with HCA Real Madrid should beat any of these teams. Real in 5 vs. Fener, 4 vs. Valencia.

Barcelona vs. Pana/CajaLa/Rytas - Barcelona in 3 or 4.

CSKA beats Zalgiris in the first game of the season.

Kirilenko with 17, 15 and 5. Teodosic with 16 and 8, and Shved with 19 for CSKA.

This Maccabi Pao series was one of the best ever.

Really enjoy almost every game - and they saved the best for last, amazing game. refs are awfully inconsistent though - but the better team won in the end, Maccabi squized pretty much everything they possibly could tho.

Great two games !! Olympiakos is still surprising everyone. CSKA - Olympiakos will play the final.

Very very few NBA games can be better than CSKA - Pana game today.

Shved has come a long way. JCN and Spanoulis are awesome. (but that's to be expected)

Any word on the Acie Law injury?

Law suffered a bad ankle sprain and had to use crutches after the game. He says he wants to play, but the Olympiacos coach said that after his MRI result came back, that it is 99% certain that he can't play in the final.

I think Law just said he wants to play, holding out hope. But it seems extremely unlikely that he will play. They are saying that he probably won't even be able to play during the Greek League Finals either.

You never though, everyone heals differently. Spanoulis broke his ankle earlier this season, and he was only out for 3 weeks.

This year's Final can also be called "The Battle of the Titans" :D
