Panathinaikos Basketball Club has ended a three game losing run in the EuroLeague Championship thanks to clinching a much needed 94-78 win over Khimki.
The Athens based club recorded the important win in its Nikos Gala Arena over the Russian side late on Thursday, January 21. The win is Panathinaikos’ seventh in 20 games and moves the team to 14th place.
Ghana Forward Ben Bentil played 22 minutes in the contest off the bench and registered six points, four rebounds, an assist and two steals.
Bentil scored two of five attempts from two point range and scored none of his two shots from three point range. He scored two of four attempts from the free throw line.
Compared to his blistering 14 point and 10 rebound double double in 14 minutes in a league win over Aris this past weekend, the Sekondi native’s performance was quite subdued.
Panathinaikos leads the Greek League and takes on Ermis Agias on Sunday, January 24 at 15:00 GMT.
