The Turkish Airlines EuroLeague is the premier basketball competition on the Old Continent, where the level of the game has always been high. That being the case, it’s nearly-impossible to register a perfect record, even for the biggest powerhouses in this distinguished competition.

Naturally, however, some teams have better records than others and we have grown accustomed to seeing them compete in the latter stages of the EuroLeague. At Eurohoops, we took a look at the modern era of the competition and dissected all the teams’ win-loss records since 2000.

Even though the level of the competition surges when it matters most (i.e. in the playoffs and the Final Four), the regular season also presents us with a variety of breathtaking games and finales. Considering the fact that all games played on the way to the ultimate goal have become much more important with the new format, one cannot underestimate the significance of any one particular game, even during the regular season. To put it briefly, teams have to work harder than ever before to clinch a spot and get home-court advantage in the playoffs.

CSKA Moscow is a great example of what we’re trying to describe. The Russian powerhouse has had an uninterrupted presence on the biggest stage and in the playoffs. Moreover, it is among the teams that have played the greatest number of games in the regular season as a result of their continuous presence in the competition, and this makes its win record even more impressive. CSKA has nothing to prove…

Apart from them, Spanish teams dominate the Top 10 since each season they manage to be contenders. Considering the number of titles and victories they have in the competition, one cannot be surprised at any of these teams’ records.

As for the Greek teams, just take a quick look at the number of championships they’ve won and Final Fours they’ve been to in the last 10 years. And it’s the same situation again this season. Each of the two teams has played 30 games and together they have a sum total of 38 wins between them. Surprised? Not at all.

An interesting fact about Zalgiris Kaunas: the Lithuanian champion is the only team in the Top 10 with a losing record, but that is just an illusion since they are one of the best and steadiest contributors in the EuroLeague. This season, Coach Sarunas Jasikevicius’s players have shown how strong they are with 18 victories.
