Olimpia had its best game since many weeks in  but came up short. The score was tied with two minutes left and before a huge Nunnally’s three Milan was still down by only one point. Given the circumstances including Rakim Sanders injury, Kruno Simon just back from a two-week absence plus Davide Pascolo last-minute illness, Olimpia did a great job that was not enough to win but should be labeled promising for the rest of the season. Olimpia had a six-point lead in the third, never gave up and kept coming back. Mantas Kalnietis had a fantastic first half, Jamel McLean played with great energy and Miro Raduljica had his best game in a long time. Besides Simone Fontecchio did a great job playing both forward position.  86-79 was the final score.
