The Take

The series reaches Game 4 on Thursday with Zalgiris Kaunas facing its first chance to make history and advance to the Belgrade Final Four. To do so, it must defeat Olympiacos Piraeus. The best-of-five series is currently 2-1 in favor of the Lithuanian champion and this would be the first Final Four trip for the club since it won the whole thing in 1999. In Game 3, Zalgiris made good use of the home-court factor and thrashed Olympiacos 80-60 in a defensive exhibition led by Brandon Davies (18 points) and veteran captain Paulius Jankunas (13). The loss was the worst playoff defeat for Olympiacos since 2008 as only Vassilis Spanoulis stood up with 14 points. The hosts outdid the visitors in assists (23-12) and also had the third-most accurate two-point shooting effort (72.7%) in playoff history, showing a reliability that was simply too much for the Reds to stop. An amazing atmosphere will provide to be a great stage again, but Olympiacos must ignore that if it wants to take the series back to Greece. The Reds are battling some untimely injury problems that have been preventing some key players, such as Georgios Printezis and Kostas Papanikolaou, from competing at full strength. Zalgiris is playing some of its best basketball at the right moment. Davies is averaging 19.7 points in three playoffs games, more than doubling his regular season figures, and Kevin Pangos is behind him with 12.3. History could be made on Thursday at Zalgirio Arena, and there's no doubt that Coach Sarunas Jasikevicius' warriors will give everything they have to achieve the feat on the first attempt. But the pride of Olympiacos is legendary, and one cannot count the Reds out until the final buzzer. Get ready for one of the most electrifying games of the season.
