Olympiakos faces Nizhny for the first time ever and his coach, Giannis Sfairopoulos, believes that it's going to be a difficult match for the Reds.
“Nizhny is in excellent form lately and they play very well in front of their fans. They prefer an up- tempo basketball and that means that we have to keep our aggressiveness and energy up. We need to stay focused on the defensive end. I expect nothing less than a hard game”, said Sfairopoulos.
As for Brent Petway? “He went through a full practice yesterday and today, but we have to wait for tomorrow's practice in Russia”, was Sfairopoulos' comment.
