26-04-2017 18:30 BST - Anadolu Efes v Olympiacos Piraeus - Euroleague Playoffs Tips

Anadolu Efes Istanbul v Olympiacos PiraeusWith the series tied at 1-1 as we move into Game 3, we should be in for a fantastic evening of basketball action in Turkey on Wednesday night. The opening two games in Greece were very different, which makes it harder to predict but you know for sure that this is going to be a physical clash with a very noisy and passionate crowd roaring the hosts on. When it comes to exciting Euroleague Playoff action, this is likely to be one of the biggest ties of the week.

With a win placing the victors on the brink of the Final Four and the losers on the edge of their European season ending, this is a game that both teams will be desperate to win. The Greeks won the first match in style but the second game was a nail-biter and in the end it was the Turkish team that the game by two points:

  • Game 1: Olympiacos Piraeus 87 v Anadolu Efes Istanbul 72
  • Game 2: Olympiacos Piraeus 71 v Anadolu Efes Istanbul 73

While the defeat at home was a big issue for the Greek side to deal with, there is also the fact that Nikola Milutinov limped out of the game late on and he has to be classed as a doubt heading into this third game. This is one area where the quick turnaround between intense games doesn’t always help because players often need more time to bounce back from injury.

Olympiacos need to get back on track in Euroleague Playoff games

Tyler Honeycutt has played a key role in the two games so far, offering 32 points and 19 rebounds in the two games of the series so far. Honeycutt is likely to line up against Georgios Printezis, who remains a key player for Olympiacos. At this stage of the season, individual battles can decide games and the way these two players engage is likely to be a big factor of the game.
