2013 Turkish Airlines Euroleague Final Four semifinals
Big day for all Euroleague fans in Europe and worldwide. Turkish Airlines Euroleague Final four tournament will start today with two semifinal games after we will find out which two teams will fight for 2013 Euroleague title.
Showdown start today at 18.00 CET with Semifinal Game 1 where CSKA Moscow and Olympiacos Piraeus will face each other and try to reach Final game.
Olympiacos rallied from a 19-point deficit to edge CSKA Moscow 61-62 in the 2012 final in one of most memorable comebacks ever seen in professional sports. Naturally that game will be on the back of both teams’ minds.
Vassilis Spanoulis was named as MVP of 2012-13 Turkish Airlines Euroleague and it will be interesting to see if he will be the key player in this Match-up.
At 21.00 CET, Semifinal Game 2, clash between archrivals, FC Barcelona Regal and Real Madrid. Both teams hungry for Euroleague title.
Madrid and Barcelona have faced each other more than 200 times over more than seven decades, but this will be just their second matchup in a Final Four environment.
Barcelona faces severe injury problems, with Pete Mickeal out for the season, Nate Jawai having only a small chance to take the court and C.J. Wallace questionable after being sidelined for two weeks.
