Panathinaikos Athens (3-4) will aim to prove that last week's powerful win in Berlin could be the start of something special as its welcomes a struggling Zalgiris Kaunas (3-4), which has lost three in a row.
Green vs. green as Zalgiris visits Panathinaikos
Dinos Mitoglou has been the key player for Panathinaikos, averaging 16 points and 6 rebounds in more than 30 minutes on the floor. This week he faces a versatile paint protector in Rolands Smits, who averages 5.3 rebounds and also poses a scoring threat with an average of 13.3 points. Smits has made at least one three-pointer in each of his last six games. The hosts are entering a run of three consecutive games in Athens and will look to make that count against a Zalgiris team that has claimed two of its three wins on the road.
