Bentil goes into this game on the back of a strong performance in a 78-80 loss to Promitheas in the Greek Super League this past weekend.

The former Dallas Mavericks player scored 12 points in 13 minutes off the bench in the loss which was Panathinaikos’ second of the season in the domestic league.
