Panathinaikos won Euroleague title

And that’s it. We have champion for 2010/2011 Turkish Airlines Euroleague.

It is Panathinakos Athens. They beat Maccabi Electra in final game with 78:70.

This was real clash of titans, two powerhouses fought for this trophy and I must say that better team at this moment won this trophy. Yes, Panathinaikos is better team, and they proved that on the court.

In fantastic atmosphere in Palau Saint Jordi in Barcelona, players of Panathinaikos were better, played better and deserves this trophy. What to say about Coach Zeljko Obradovic. It is his 8th Euroleague title and now, he is the most successful coach in Europe.

Mike Batiste scored 18 points, Dimitris Diamantidis added 16 and Drew Nicholas 14 in Panathinaikos.

In Maccabi Electra, Chuck Eidson scored 17 and David Blu 14.

Just to add, in game for 3rd place Montepaschi Siena won against Real Madrid 80:62 and finished this very successful season.

I must say too bad that Euroleague season is over, me and probably the rest of Euroleague basketball fans will miss those games.
