The game went neck to neck in the first half, with Milan being in front by 4 points going into the break (33-29). Nevertheless, Ettore Messina's squad went off at the start of the third period, arranging a 12-0 run to gain a solid 16-point lead (45-29). Kyle Hines, Malcolm Delaney, and Devon Hall were raining buckets.

Even though PAO answered with an 8-0 spurt on their own (37-45), Armani Exchange pushed the accelerator pedal again (53-37) behind Sergio Rodriguez and Kyle Hines' successful stretch.

The Italians' advantage reached 18 points (69-51) in the mid-fourth quarter and Panathinaikos could not bring any intrigue into the duel. Milan celebrated a comfortable 21-point victory.

Devon Hall posted team-high 19 points (5/7 2PT, 3/4 3PT). He also added 2 rebounds, 1 block, 1 drawn foul, and 19 PIR to his performance.

"It's a lot easier to play on offense when you're getting stops, you've got more confidence and you're not worried about missing shots. We did a really good job on the defensive end and securing possessions with rebounds," told Devon Hall.

Kyle Hines aided him with 14 points (6/7 2PT, 2/2 FT), 4 rebounds, 1 assist, 1 steal, 1 turnover, 2 drawn fouls, and 17 PIR.

"We moved the ball more, we made some big plays with Devon and Kyle, who created shots also for the other players. We kept our solid defense and I think we got a well-deserved win. Now we can think about the next one. We had a lot of great contributions from many players tonight," said Ettore Messina post-game.

Daryl Macon was a top scorer for PAO, registering 14 points (4/6 2PT, 1/5 3PT, 3/3 FT), 1 rebound, 2 assists, 5 turnovers, 6 drawn fouls, and 7 PIR.

"We played a very bad second half. We started without concentration in the third quarter. We made some stupid mistakes, they opened the difference, and then the game was very tough for us," spoke Dimitris Priftis after the big-margin blow.

Armani Exchange: Devon Hall 19, Kyle Hines 14 (4 REB), Nicolo Melli 9 (3 STL), Troy Daniels 9, Shavon Shields 9.

Panathinaikos: Daryl Macon 14, Kendrick Perry 7, Leonidas Kaselakis 6 (4 REB), Okaro White 6 (6 REB, 10 PIR).
