Montepaschi almost pulls off a feat in Piraeus, ceding in the end to home team Olympiacos, 78-73.

The green-and-whites, who have to do without Hackett who’s the victim of a hip contusion, start off strong with a 3-8 break. The Reds come close from the line, but Green responds in kind. A 3’, Siena leads by two points (9-11). Nelson hits one off the backboard, but Olympiacos has a ready responds. Carter keeps Montepaschi ahead. The Greeks tie it up at the end of the quarter, but Rochestie’s basket at the buzzer puts Siena up 15-17.

Montepaschi stays in control, but the Reds’ reaction comes quickly to trail by 5 at mid quarter (61-66).
