oh holy crap!!!

Efes Pilsen lost to Climamio Bologna 72-74 and the away team, coached by Turkish headcoach Ergin Ataman, got its very first win in the Euroleague..

Efes Pilsen, coming from a monster win over Olympiacos last week, led all the way until 1 min 15 seconds when Climamio took its second ever lead in the game 65-68 with a Shumpert 3pt. Efes increased the gap to 11 pts at the end of third quarter (59-48) but fell agonizingly short and is now 3:3.

Ataman replaced Fabricio Frates two weeks ago as Climamio headcoach after the team fell to 0:4 in the Euroleague and 2:5 in Italian League.

Mehmet Okur have taken over the leading role at Utah Jazz in the last two games of the team as he poured in a combined 50 points against Grizzlies (20 points 9 rebounds) and Hawks (30 points 10 rebounds 4/5 3pts).

in addition, in the game against Bobcats, Memo played his 208th consecutive match for the Jazz, making him the fifth player in that list in Jazz franchise history (1. Stockton 2. Havlichek 3. Malone 4. Russell). Jazz lost 89-101 to Bobcats as Memo had 19 points and 9 rebounds. Boozer led his team with 22 points and 14 rebounds.

quite off topic, but what the hell is Krilenko doing?? he was supposed to be the star of this team, not Memo, not Boozer! :blink:

Efes kept their asskicking tunes on as they came back from 8 points with 2:50 to go to beat Climamio 76-74. Horace Jenkins had 7 of his 15 points in the last 2:43 and led the way. Efes' long-time injured sharpshooter Antonio Granger also made his return and had just 1 rebound in his 1:35 minute-stint.

Fenerbahce Ulker's Latvian center Kaspars Kambala has been tested positive for a doping substance. His samples were taken after the Aris game at Abdi Ipekci. He has been left out of the squad for the game against CSKA Moskva...

"The Prime Time Spurs Killer" (what Steve Kerr calls him) Mehmet Okur has yet another time killed the Spurs with his 31 points and 12 rebounds. He had 14 points in the final quarter and the Jazz, without injured Carlos Boozer, ended a two game slide.

In the absence of Boozer, rarely used reserve players also got their fair share in the win as Brazilian power forward Rafa Araujo had 8 points 7 rebounds 3 steals and the rookie Paul Millsap had 15 points and 9 boards.

Jazz came up with 50 rebounds against the Spurs, tying their season best which wa also against Spurs in November.

After a monster win against the Spurs two days ago, the Jazz have now beaten the Suns 108-105, with the finishing touches comingn again from Mehmet Okur. The center who was not selected among all-star reserves dominated the second half of the game with putbacks, jump shots, 3 pointers and inside scoring as he had 19 of his 29 points in the second half. He had 12 boards to go with his points. "This is Memo.. This guys loves clutch play!" said his teammate point-guard Deron Williams, who had 28 points and 10 assists. The Jazz are now 2-1 since the Boozer injury.

Mehmet Okur's name is now written with golden letters (too turkish style, ain't it? :P ) in Turkish basketball history. He has been selected as "THE PLAYER OF THE WEEK IN WESTERN CONFERENCE" as he carried his team to 3:0 in the absence of Carlos Boozer. He had 26.3 points 11.3 rebounds and 2.6 assists in the Jazz's three key wins over San Antonio, Phoenix and Chicago respectively. :nw:

He sent his respectful greetings to stupid NBA coaches who didn't select him as a reserve center for the all star game.. <_<

Papaloukas of CSKA Moscow signed a 3 year deal for 3 millions euros per year. That makes his contract the highest based on a combination of money and length of contract...

Your front line looks deadly for Euro- what are the guards like - do you have a reasonable point guard and any gritty players

I think our rotation shall be like..

PG - Ender Arslan(Panionios)-Engin Atsur(Benetton)-Hedo Turkoglu *

SG - Serkan Erdogan(TAU)-Ersan Ilyasova(Barca)-Ibrahim Kutluay(Fenerbahce)

SF - Hedo Turkoglu - Ersan Ilyasova - Omer Onan (Fenerbahce) *

PF - Ermal Kuqo (Efes) - Kerem Gonlum (Efes) - Hedo Turkoglu *

C - Memo Okur - Semih Erden (Fenerbahce) - Fatih Solak (Galatasaray)

Tanjevic likes to give all the players a share so it can be said we will see Memo, Hedo and maybe Ilyasova playing up to 28-30 mins and the rest of the team shall be at around 15 to 25 mins. What we lack in this team is a scoring playmaker as neither Arslan nor Atsur seem to be consistent with their shooting. Both can drive in to the lane and dish well but our scoring from these two players will rarely exceed 10-12 points which is bothering.

One advantage we have is players covering the same positions having different skills, such as Ersan who is an athletic winger and a sharp shooter and Hedo who is not such a good shooter but a better defender on one-v-ones. Same goes for Ermal and Kerem; the former likes to post up around the low post while the latter has a better overall game and is a threat with his intimidating blocks.

* - will cover that position if needed

gs - thanks for the update

You have a tough group, like us, but have a decent chance of doing very well.

Like I said on another forum, I think that Turkey is a darkhorse that has a great chance of winning the championship.

Best of luck
