Panathinaikos’s Jaka Lakovic (r) and Michael Batiste (c) try to stop Efes Pilsen’s Ender Arslan in last night’s Euroleague Group G match in Athens. The Turkish club won 76-73, reducing Panathinaikos’s hopes of a Final Four berth next month. The Greek club also lost its previous two group games. With three games to go, it needs at least second place for a quarterfinal berth.
