Every times we have the control the games, under the control the games, during the games we had the some possibilities, some big chances, some big okazyons, something like that but what can I do, sometimes?

Bloody hell, always basically the same teams reach this competition.

This is much more predictable than football.

Lazio midfield 1999: ** Nedved - Veron - Simeone - Conceicao

Lazio midfield, 13.12.2009: ** Kolarov - Firmani - Del Nero - Lichtsteiner

In Final Four it's not necessarily the case, given that it's a sudden death format.

well, Olympiakos who won the previous two titles didn't even make it to the semis this time...

Yeah, Olympiacos winning the last two titles was a huge surprise. Real Madrid have been the best European team in recent years, so I predict they will win that missing title. I am going to support Barca though, because they have two Slovenian players.

CSKA lead against Maccabi, the first quarter ended 19-16. Both teams have a terrible shot for 3 points.

Real proves their worth and utterly destroys Barcelona. Surprised that Maccabi reached the finals, thought they were by far the weakest team in the final 4.

final today...RM clearly a favourite

didn't see the semis but Real Madrid annihilating Barca by 38 points definitely seems shocking...what happened there I wonder?

Real is definitely the favorite, next year the Final Four games will be play in Madrid and that's their chance to win it again.

4th quarter has begun and still it's all equal...Maccabi has played well and whenever Baby Shaq has been on, Real struggles to contain him

73-73...it goes to OT

Maccabi was closer to the victory, having a 4 point lead with a minute to go

Maccabi has pretty much won it after Ty Rice entered god mode in the clutch minutes. gotta say it's the former second rate college players schooling the European finest whitey here

the Maccabi 5 on court in the deciding times of 4th quarter and OT:

Tyrese Rice, Boston College, 2005-2009 undrafted by NBA
Ricky Hickman, UNC Greensboro, 2003-2007 undrafted
Devin Smith, Virginia 2002-2005 undrafted
David Bluthenthal, USC 1998-2002 undrafted
Alex Tyus, Florida 2007-2011, undrafted

bloody Muricans p

Biggest shocker in Euroleague history

Don't waste your time on jealously; sometimes you're ahead, sometimes you're behind.

The race is long, and in the end - it's only with yourself.
