Panathinaikos guard Nikos Pappas admits that CSKA is the favorite in the Euroleague playoffs, but says that his team will not go down without a fight.
"CSKA has the edge, however that doesn't mean we will not try our best", he said before the trip to Moscow. "We do not care if we come back with a 2-0 or a 0-2, if we make it in the fifth match. We just want to qualify for the Final 4. It is a big opportunity for the three guys who are under 18 to prove that the team can count on them. It will be a unique experience for them. We know how tough CSKA is at home, but we will fight".
