I just finished watching the re-run of Olympiakos vs. Siena. I mean it was an exciting game right? A solid Marc Jackson with 23 points, 9 rebounds and even 5 assists. But it was Terrell McIntyre who spoiled Marc Jackson’s performance.
Everybody who watched the game saw his 3/3 three pointers in the last 3 minutes or so that gave Siena the deciding push to win this close game. I mean both teams are already qualified, fighting for a better spot won’t help since the groups will be mixed on Monday anyway. In the end Shaun “Krusty” Stonerook’s three buried all the hopes for Olympiakos to win the game.
But did anybody see Pini Gershon leaving the arena after shaking the referees and coaches hands? Two guards covering him and objects flying in his direction, even hitting him?
I might need some Greek person or even Olympiakos fan to explain this to me. I really don’t understand that at all. Even if I would be an insider and people tell me, hey, they don’t like what he did so far and Panathinaikos right now has the better record – I still would think: But hey – you are in the next round and Siena is a pretty good team this year.
So any kind of explanation is welcome.
