Daryl Macon, Panathinaikos: 'I'm in love with it'
Panathinaikos also forced Fenerbahce to really low shooting percentages, and that was arguably the biggest key to this game. The hosts only hit 47.2% of their shots inside the arc and 27.3% from downtown. Panathinaikos was much more effective from two-point range, hitting 19-of-35 shots (54.2%). Ioannis Papapetrou and Georgios Papagiannis each scored 6-of-8 two-point shots. Papagiannis also finished the game with 11 defensive rebounds, one shy of the EuroLeague's season-high mark, shared by him, Nick Calathes of FC Barcelona, Vladimir Lucic of FC Bayern Munich, and Tyler Cavanaugh of Zalgiris Kaunas.
