After 68-66 defeat to ALBA Berlin for the Euroleague Top 16, Panathinaikos owner Dimitris Giannakopoulos expressed his support to the players and the coach.
"We will try to win the first trophy of the season on Sunday", he said, referring to the Greek Cup final against Apolllon Patra. "It is the only thing in our minds. It would be nice if you could play after having qualified for the last 8 of the Euroleague. However, I trust the team and the coach and I believe that we will make it next week".
