Led by Spanoulis, Printezis, and Lojeski, Olympiacos defeated Darussafaka 71-77 in Istanbul for the 10th round of the Euroleague Regular Season. The win moves Olympiacos up to 6-4 for the season.
Olympiacos bounced back after last week’s loss at home to Maccabi Tel-Aviv by defeating Darussafaka 71-77 in Turkey. The Erythrolefki took a 9-point lead into halftime (34-43) and comfortably held onto their advantage in the second half, increasing the difference to 12-points (40-52) midway through the third quarter. A push from the hosts midway through the fourth quarter brought the game within 2-points (61-63), but the Olympiacos defense came through when it was needed most as they went on to win 71-77 in their beloved city of Istanbul.
Printezis and Lojeski led Olympiacos with 15-points while Spanoulis added 13-points and Green put up 10-points. The win brings Olympiacos’ record to 6-4 after 10 rounds in this year’s Euroleague.
