Panathinaikos had no problem against Prometheus and beat Patras with a score of 75-44.
Panathinaikos wanted to show signs of reaction after losing to Olympiacos in Oka in the Euroleague and they did in Patras, where they easily defeated Prometheus 75-44 in the postponed match of the fifth round of the Basket League.
A very good debut by Giorgos Kalitzakis on the “Green” side, which was disappointing for the Patrinos who never entered the competition.
From the start of the match, Panathinaikos left no room for Prometo to believe that they would be able to get something out of the match. On a quick 7-pointer from Derrick Williams, the Greens went 2-9, followed by a Bohorides 3-pointer that gave them their first double-digit lead, and from that point on it was basically over. The home team had no offensive solutions and saw the first quarter lose 17 (8-25).
In the second half, the difference increased dramatically, and remained stable at 20 points. Giorgos Kalitzakis was the protagonist of “Alfalfa” who played basketball very well, while Bonitka was also one of the highlights. For the Patras team, only Lithuanian Kolbuka had a good day, finishing with 16 points.
The final quarter was a very poor showing for both teams, as the home team gave up for a while and Panathinaikos lost its rhythm. The final 44-75 says it all about the picture of the match, as Panathinaikos hung on for a comfortable victory that only lifted them to second place in the standings with an 8-2 record. With 4-6 now Patrino, who was officially eliminated from the Final 8 of the Cup.
