Led by a great Mike James, author of 24 points, Monaco got rid of Olympiakos this Thursday evening (85-77).
Monaco beat the Greek team Olympiakos (85-77), its pet peeve who eliminated it in the semi-finals of the competition last season, and at the same time moved ahead of its opponent in the rankings. the Euroleague after 11 days.
With seven victories, including, now, two in a row, for four defeats, the Roca Team remains in standards close to those of last season, where at the end of November, Sasa Obradovic’s team accumulated seven victories and three defeats in ten days.
Despite this, the Monegasques know that the future will be complicated. They now enter a series of three consecutive trips to Belgrade, against Partizan, in Kaunas and in Istanbul against Fenerbahçe over the next two weeks. In the meantime, Monaco can savor its very good victory against a great European player. And she owes it, once again, to her star, Mike James, 24 points who was especially decisive and dominant in +money time+ (10 points and an ist in the last two minutes).
