With just 8 games to go, 6 teams still have hope for the last 3 playoff spots. However, only 2 of these teams can simply say “win and we’re in.” The rest have to hope for results in other matches to go their way as well. 4 teams also still have hope for their Euroleague season to continue in the playoffs with a loss but they will definitely need certain contentions for that. For example, Baskonia could lose their game against CSKA Moscow and still be the sixth team to qualify if Anadolu Efes beats Milano in the next game. All the situations that each team needs are laid out below. The live projections will also be updated up until we have all 8 teams set.

Win and you’re in

Lose and you’re in UNLESS Milano and Olympiacos win and Panathinaikos, Zalgiris and Maccabi all lose
