Besiktas won its first Eurocup game after three losses (but the game against Gottingen has to be replayed) against ASVEL (80-74 the final score). Allen Iverson was on the court for 25 minutes scoring 9 point but was benched in the final quarter when his temmates rallied ASVEL.
Iverson before the game, on Twitter, wrote that he was going to dedicate the victory to the memory of Phil Jasner (a famous journalist from Philadelphia who covered Sixers for several years and who died few days ago).
My teammates and I are about to go into war, in a very important game. I am dedicating tonights game to the memory of Phil Jasner. If I considered by some to be one of best to have played the game. He clearly was the best to have ever. covered one. This one is for you Phil. God Bless!
