Nick Calathes had an unbelievable game in Italy, leading Panathinaikos OPAP Athens to a huge win against AX Exchange Armani Milan. Currently, the ‘Greens’ are favorites for qualifying to the playoffs, after winning their sixth straight game.

The 30-year old star filled up the stat-sheet with an unreal line of a season-high 27 points (12/17 2FG) (1/5 3FG), 14 assists, eight rebounds, and two steals. He took a breather for only 39 seconds, playing hard on both ends of the court. Besides, his game-high 27 points and 14 assists, Calathes scored 39 points in the PIR ranking.

“It’s a great win for us,” said Calathes after the final buzzer. “To come in here and win is a very important game for our team. Hopefully, we can keep it going. For our fans to come here, they made it happen for us, gave us energy on the court and we never gave up.”
