The Greek side scored only 6 points in the third quarter, their season-low, while Fenerbahce, led by Jan Vesely, who was the leading scorer of the team at the end of the quarter with 19 points, reacted with a 12-0 run in the final 5 minutes of the quarter to lead at the end of the third by 5 points (49-44).

In the third quarter, though, Fenerbahce started to find some groove offensively, while Panathinaikos lost the flow found in the first half. Sant-Roos remained in the locker room after feeling discomfort in his right leg. 

Panathinaikos' offense continued to work efficiently in the second quarter. Captain Ioannis Papapetrou led the way with a great shooting performance, helping the Greek side to reach a 7-point lead (34-27). Coach Priftis' side finished the first half with a solid lead (38-32).

Panathinaikos began the first quarter better than Fener, showing more energy and aggressiveness, reaching a 7-point lead in the first half of the quarter (14-7). After a timeout in which coach Djordjevic gave some energy to his players, Fener reacted in a good way, and behind Pierria Henry's 10 points they were able to finish the first quarter only down by 2 points (20-22). 

Ioannis Papapetrou was the top scorer for Panathinaikos with 21 points (6/8 2PT, 2/6 3PT, 3/3 FT), 6 assists, 3 rebounds, and 22 PIR. 

For Fenerbahce, on the other hand, the top scorer was Jan Vesely with 20 points (8/12 2PT, 4/7 FT), 7 rebounds, 1 steal, 2 blocks and 29 PIR.
