Olympiacos came away with a rather comfortable 73-65 victory over their “Brother” club Crvena Zvezda in the 13th round of the Euroleague. The Greek Champions conserved their energy as they face many injuries problems, knowing that another Euroleague match awaits in a few days. The win brings Olympiacos’ record to 9-4.
After a rather even first quarter, that saw Olympiacos take a 4-point lead into the second quarter, the hosts began to build a comfortable advantage in the second period, where they went ahead by as many as 13-points (35-22). The first half ended with Olympiacos ahead by eleven points, 45-34.
The Greek Champions continued to increase their lead (up to 17 points) while holding the opposition to only NINE points in the third quarter. Although Crvena Zvezda brought the game within seven points, the match was well out of reach as Olympiacos marched on to 73-65 victory.
Lojeski led Olympiacos in scoring with 18 points while Green added 15 points. The win moves Olympiacos to 9-4 in the Euroleague Regular Season as they look to make it 10 wins from 14 games on Thursday against Bamberg.
