Once again, Fenerbahce Istanbul came one possession away from winning. Alas, as it happened in Madrid vs. Real and Istanbul vs FC Barcelona, Olympiacos were able to cross the finish line first in one more game that went down to the wire.

That's when Kostas Sloukas, a familiar face for the Turkish powerhouse, appeared, stealing the show and snatching victory from the jaws of defeat for the hosts.

After the game, Fener's coach Sasa Djordjevic referred to his team's lapses during the contest, which ultimately caused them their fifth loss of the 2021-22 season.

"Congratulations to Olympiacos. It was a great game, but losing the fourth game in the last seconds is not easy for my guys," the Serbian coach said before focusing on the good (the effort), the bad (mistakes), and the ugly (Pierre's injury) aspects of the game for the 2017 EuroLeague champs.

"I am proud of my player's efforts. We lacked concentration at the start of the second quarter, defensively we made many mistakes. In the second half, that changed. We played with heart.

I am worried about Dyshawn Pierre's injury. We could have won the game, we played with heart. Jan (Vesely) played great defense against Sloukas in the last possession.

As soon as we controlled the rebounds, we had some good looks. We just have to keep going," Aleksandar Djordjevic concluded.
