Schilb, Green lead Paris to quarterfinals

Paris Levallois made it to the Eurocup quarterfinals for the first time in Eurocup history by downing PGE Turow Zgorzelec 78-87 in Poland on Wednesday. Paris swept the series and will keep fighting to win the competition. Blake Schilb paced the winners with 24 points and 5 assists. Mike Green added 21 points and 6 assists while Dionte Christmas had 15 points for Paris. Vlad Moldoveanu led Turow with 19 points and 10 rebounds. Damian Kulig added 16 points and 9 rebounds, Michal Chilinski had 11 points while Tony Taylor got 10 for the hosts. Kulig and an outstanding Moldoveanu gave Turow a 22-16 lead late in the first quarter. It didn't last long, however, as Schilb had 8 points in a series-changing 0-18 run which allowed Paris to get a 22-34 margin. Schilb and Christmas kept the guests way ahead, 34-44, at halftime. Turow improved its defense after the break and a three-pointer by Kulig brought the hosts as close as 44-46. Schilb and Sharrod Ford stepped up for Paris, giving the guests a 48-59 margin after 30 minutes. Paris boosted its margin to 57-69 soon after that and relied on Schilb and Green to keep their team ahead until the final buzzer.

Kulig got Turow going with a free throw and Chylinski added a layup for a 3-0 lead. Moldoveanu hit a running hook and struck from downtown but Schilb and Green kept Paris within 8-5. Green kept pacing the guests with a jumper and a triple but Kulig and Chris Wright put Turow back ahead, 12-10. Schilb and Green kept finding easy baskets but Kulig kept his team in front, 16-14. Moldoveanu shined with a six-meter jumper and a bomb from downtown to boost the hosts' lead to 22-18 after 10 minutes. Schilb took over with back-to-back three-pointers early in the second quarter. A layup by JBAM soon gave Paris a 22-26 edge - and a seven-point lead in the series. Christmas hit free throws and a put-back layup by Ford made Turow call timeout at 22-30. Schilb hit a one-handed running shot and added a catch-and-shoot jumper to cap a 0-18 Paris run. Taylor split foul shots and Mardy Collins hit a triple but Louis Labeyrie and an unstoppable Schilb kept Paris way ahead, 26-38. Christmas took over with back-to-back triples but Moldoveanu and Chylinski kept Turow within 34-44 at halftime.

Ford scored in the low post immediately after the break. Taylor tried to change things with consecutive layups which Chylinski followed with a three-pointer to give Turow hope at 41-46. Paris called timeout but Kulig hit a triple for a 44-46 deficit. Giovan Oniangue and Ford stepped up with back-to-back baskets and free throws by Green gave the guests fresh air at 46-52. Collins hit his second three-pointer but Maleye Ndoye quickly answered from downtown and Schilb nailed an eight-meter bomb off the dribble to beat the shot clock buzzer for a 49-58 Paris lead after 30 minutes. Christmas followed a three-pointer with free throws and Green added a three-pointer to boost the guests' lead to 54-66 early in the fourth quarter. Moldoveanu nailed a triple but Schilb and Christmas restored a 57-69 Paris lead with under 6 minutes left. Taylor and Moldoveanu fueled a 6-0 run which Aleksander Czyz capped with a dunk but Schilb found Labeyrie for an alleyoop layup and rounded his great game with a wild four-point play. Turow never gave up for Paris swept the series and stayed alive in the competition.

"Our adventure with the Eurocup is finished. I am proud of my players because tonight they gave their maximum. Paris looked fresher, more athletic than we did tonight. Now it is time for me and my players to concentrate on the Polish league and to try to give the team energy and direction in the upcoming games."
BEUGNOT, GREGOR
Paris Levallois
"We have to underline the fact that we played against a Euroleague team that beat another Euroleague team to find themselves where they are now. They had experience coming from the best league. Yet what I told my players is to stay focused because we have to play good in defense to win and so we did."

CHYLINSKI, MICHAL
PGE Turow Zgorzelec
"We are really tired at the moment as we have more than 50 games behind us and still the most important in front of us. Paris was more eager tonight on the court not because they wanted to win more than we did. We really did our best to win, we badly wanted that win, however we lacked freshness and energy. Now it is time to get it back."
