Brose Bamberg is back on track. After two defeats in a row in Europe's top league, the German champion has won the 21st matchday of the Turkish Airlines EuroLeague against Panathinaikos Superfoods Athens 95:74. At the break Brose already led with ten points (42:32), but lost the lead by a poor third quarter (15:23). In the final section, however, the hosts managed almost everything, so that the victory was also deserved in the height. Best Brose scorer was Augustine Rubit with 26 points.
Ilias Kantzouris: „I believe we are coming off a very difficult week, having one bad result and one really bad performance. I feel we bounced back as a team. We played a very good game for 40 minutes, with all the mistakes that basketball can include. We had a lot of energy, we fought for rebounds and loose balls, which is something that was missing in previous games. And I believe we had a really good result against a great team as Panathinaikos. Coach Trinchieri was glad about the result, but as a perfectionist, in the locker room he was commenting what we can do better.“
