Olympiacos arranged an 8-2 run at the end of the first quarter (20-10) to start their domination. Just like in the first 10 minutes of the game, Olympiacos went on a mission at the end of the second period. Georgios Bartzokas' men, led by Tyler Dorsey, organized an 8-0 spurt to gain a solid 18-point lead (39-21), going into the break.

They did not release the accelerator pedal in the second half, creating a massive 31-point advantage (65-34) in the third quarter. Sasha Vezenkov was flying on the court and nailing shots.

The last 10 minutes of the duel were a mere formality as Olympiacos' lead reached the apex of 36 points (79-43). They remained undefeated at home with a style.

Tyler Dorsey was a top performer for the Greek powerhouse, registering 19 points (2/3 2PT, 3/6 3PT, 6/6 FT), 3 rebounds, 2 assists, 1 turnover, 3 drawn fouls, and 20 PIR.

"It was a good win for us, we got two blowout wins but we got a big one next week [against Panathinaikos]. We know how important that is and we know that we lost that one in the Greek League. We have a lot of motivation for the next week. We know how important a Greek derby is, and we cannot disappoint the fans again. We are going to be ready," said Dorsey.

Sasha Vezenkov added 15 points (6/7 2PT, 1/3 3PT), 4 rebounds, 3 assists, and 19 PIR.

"I think it was a great show from our players. The atmosphere was great one more time, so I want to give credit to everybody for this win. It was really important to get the win. We don't underestimate anybody, ASVEL is a very good team but our defense today was really solid," told Bartzokas post-game.

Dylan Osetkowski was a top scorer for ASVEL, posting 13 points (5/8 2PT, 1/4 3PT), 5 rebounds, 1 steal, 2 turnovers, and 8 PIR.
