The schedule ramped up for Anadolu Efes recently and the result was a trio of tough losses.

Efes lost a hard fought battle with Valencia Basket last Thursday, 76-74, despite 13 points and 6 assists from Shane Larkin.

They attempted to bounce back on Tuesday but got blitzed by CSKA Moscow in a 100-65 defeat. Their most recent effort on Thursday saw them get back in contention, but a late comeback by AX Armani Exchange Milano sent the Turkish team to their third consecutive loss.

Next up is a battle with the No. 2 team in the Euroleague, FC Barcelona. A win at home over Barca could get Efes right back on track. Tip-off from Sinan Erdem Sports Hall is scheduled for 8:30 p.m. local time.
