Their main advantage became three-point shots and domination under the rim. As the game with Zalgiris has proven, if you cannot stop Olympiacos near the rim, it will be very difficult to win. Nevertheless, opponent today is not the one who is in the bottom, Olimpia is performing very well and is proving to belong among the elite of Europe.
Olimpia struggled at the beginning of the season but then decided to hire Etore Messina from San Antonio Spurs. Italian got very valuable experience and has turned Milano into a very different team. They started playing on defence and offence much better, and although they had some players injured, that did not stop them from remaining among the top teams and so far Milano lost only 3 times. At one point Milano won 6 games in a row, but in previous round surprisingly lost against Anadolu Efes. Nevertheless, this team is very dangerous and can play anywhere against anyone.
