The Take

Krasny Oktyabr Volgograd (1-4) is at home against AEK Athens (3-2). In their opening-round clash five weeks ago, Loukas Mavrokefalidis had one of the greatest individual performances in competition history when he scored 42 points and finished with a performance index rating of 55. Mavrokefalidis not only earned weekly MVP honors for that performance, but he was also a co-MVP of Round 5 last week. On the other side, Oktyabr's D.J. Cooper leads Eurocup with 10.6 assists, the only player in double-figures in that category. Galatasaray Odeabank Istanbul (5-0) hosts Neptuans Kleipeda (2-3). The hosts are not only unbeaten, but also have Eurocup's second best scoring offense with 89 points per game. Galatasaray's Errick McCollum scores 21.2 points per game, second best in the competition. The two teams played in Euroleague regular season last year, splitting home victories. Hapoel Bank Yahav Jerusalem (2-3) and the Round 5 co-MVP E.J. Rowland welcome Nizhny Novgorod (2-3) in what looks like a key game for both teams. Jerusalem leads the competition with 19.4 assists per game, and the team has two wins in as many home games this season. The visitors won the Round 1 clash by a 21-point margin, but now are looking to snap a three-game losing streak that includes a pair of dramatic last-minute losses against Neptunas and Galatasaray in the past two weeks.

Neptunas stops Galatasaray's winning streak in Group F

Neptunas Klaipeda sent a message that echoed all around the competition by downing previously undefeated Galatasaray Odeabank Istanbul 76-82 on the road in Group F on Wednesday.

Blake Schilb found his first points early in the fourth quarter, igniting an 8-0 run which he capped with another basket for a 66-68 Galatasaray deficit. Ewing stepped up with back-to-back layups but Dorsey scored down low for a 68-72 score. Grant and Ewing gave Neptunas plenty of fresh air, 68-76. McCollum made free throws and a layup by Micov kept Galatasaray within 72-76 with under 3 minutes left. Grant took over with a backdoor layup and fed Bader for a corner triple that sealed the outcome, 72-81, as Galatasaray never recovered.
