Default Re: Nick Galis: "Euroleague Scrub" That Scored 50 points In A Game Against Michael Jordan

Galis led Greece to a victory over USSR and Sabonis at EuroBasket 1989. The SAME Soviet Union team that won the Olympics gold medal by beating Team USA in 1988. They beat the defending Olympic champions, that not even Team USA could beat.

Greece 1989 > Soviet Union 1988 > USA 1988

During the game, Sabonis had 19 points, while Galis had 45 points.


Box Score: Greece 81 - USSR 80 - Galis 45 Points - Sabonis 19 Points

Sabonis, "the greatest European player of all time", averaged 16.4 points per game during the tournament, while Galis averaged 36.5 points per game.


Sabonis: 16.4 PPG

Galis: 36.5 PPG
