The Take

After consecutive road games Nizhny Novgorod (2-1) plays at home against Neptunas Klaipeda (1-2). One negative streak will have to give in this one, as Nizhny is yet to beat a team from Lithuania in an official game, while Neptunas has not won a game in Russia in European competitions. Krasny Oktyabr Volgograd(1-2) and Eurocup leading scorer Tony Mitchell host group leader Galatasaray Odeabank Istanbul (3-0). The host team comes off a pair of losses, while undefeated Galatasaray looks to improve its record on Russian soil, where it is 1-8 all time. It is a clash of top-five offenses, as Galatasaray is tied for third with 90 points per game, while Oktyabr is fifth-best with 86.3 on average. AEK Athens (1-2) welcomes former champion Hapoel Bank Yahav Jerusalem (1-2). The two teams have not met in 16 years, with AEK holding 7-1 all-time record. AEK big man Loukas Mavrokefalidis leads the competition in index rating (35.7). Both of Jerusalem's losses this season have come on the road, and club has lost 10 of its last 11 Eurocup road games dating back to 2013-14 campaign.

Galatasaray escaped from Russia with perfect record intact

Galatasaray Istanbul remains unbeaten atop Group F after escaping from Krylatskoye Sports Palace with a 72-88 win over Krasny Oktyabr Volgograd on Wednesday. Galatasaray improved to 4-0, while Krasny Oktyabr fell to 1-3. The hosts got a slim 24-18 margin early in the second quarter, but Galatasaray took the lead at 34-37 on an Errick McCollum three-pointer. A crucial 11-0 run in the third quarter gave it a comfortable margin and Galatasaray never looked back. McCollum starred for the winners with 21 points, 8 rebounds, 4 assists and 4 steals for a performance index rating of 36. Blake Schilb added 19 points and 9 assists, Caleb Green scored 12, while Stephane Lasme and Joey Dorsey chipped in 10 apiece in victory. JaJuan Johnson had 19 points and 8 boards for Krasny Oktyabr, Jordan Hamilton contributed with 16 and 7, DJ Cooper netted 14 and dished 7 assists and Dmitry Sokolov scored 10.

Back-to-back three-pointer by Cooper gave a 13-5 margin to Oktyabr at the midway point of the first quarter. Caleb Green from mid range and Lasme in the paint fueled the guests, but Andrei Mateiunas scored 4 points in a row gave a double digit cushion, 20-9, to the home team. A 9-2 Galatasaray run to finish the quarter highlighted by Schilb from downtown and McCollum from mid range made it 22-18. Cooper extended the margin to 24-18 to start the second quarter. Sinan Guler from beyond the arc and Green inside cut the difference to 27-26, then the score was tied three times before McCollum from the three-point line and Dorsey with a reverse layup put Galatasaray in front 34-39. Schilb and Johnson exchanged buckets before Dorsey scored again underneath for a 37-43 Galatasaray lead at halftime.

Lasme capped a 6-0 run to get a double digit margin, 37-49. Hamilton and Johnson tried to fuel the hosts, but an 11-0 run for Galatasaray made it a 15-point game. Sokolov and Johnson contained the difference by scoring late in the quarter, 53-67. Sokolov pushed the home team to within 57-67, but Green hit from downtown and rejected Krasny farther. Schilb added a deep three, while Dorsey made it a 20-point game, 61-81. Dmitry Korshakov and Igor Zamansky tried to cut the margin in the final minutes, while Safak Edge’s shot from long distance with three second left for the winners fixed the final at 72-88.

"We started pretty good, but step by step Galatasaray took control of the game. Today we lacked sharpness in offense and Galatasaray has a much deeper bench."
