It was kind of an easy afternoon for AX Armani Exchange Milan, who dominated in their first game of the "Paris European Games" against the host Paris Basketball 95-64. The team coached by Ettore Messina was able to win easily thanks to their performance from beyond the three-point line (13 for 29).

Already in the first half, Milan built a comfortable lead, finishing the first 20 minutes of the game up by 15 points. Malcolm Delaney, in his first pre-season game, dished 7 assists in the first half, finding his teammates easily. 

In the third quarter, it was the Troy Daniels' show. The former NBA guard had 17 of his 19 points in the third, with 4 straight 3-pointers, showing how good of a fit he can be as a shooter coming off the bench. In the final period, Milan kept the game under control, leaving Paris with no hope of producing a comeback. 

The French club was missing one of its main additions of the summer, former NBA and Fenerbahce big man Kyle O'Quinn. Troy Daniels finished with 19 points, Shavon Shields had 15.

For Paris, the only player in double-figures was Barbitch with 15 points.
