So this is a very dangerous team and Olympiacos will have huge troubles by trying to stop them. CSKA likes to run fast and score from fast break, also team has a lot of shooters and it makes even more difficult to guard every player who wants to shoot from long range.
Olympiacos started poorly this season and where considered to end the season in 15-17th place, but so far they are proving that they can fight. With 5 wins Oly are in 9th place and if they would manage to defeat CSKA, the team could go up to 6th place. However, CSKA is too fast and too many individual strong players having team. Olympiacos has Sloukas, Printezis, Spanoulis, but all these players are too slow to stop such athletic players like James, Hackett, Hynes. What Oly have to do is to make this game as slow as they can, because if CSKA players will not be able to score fast break points, it might be more close game and Olympiacos would have a chance to grab a win.
