In a heated rivalry game, the David Blatt-lead Olympiakos defeated Rick Pitino's Panathinaikos 79-65. It was Pitino's first loss with Panathinaikos after two straight wins.

The matchup pitted two of the biggest rivals in European basketball, with 50 Panathinaikos fans visiting a practice session before the game to urge them to beat their opponents.
