The 2004–05 Euroleague was the fifth season of the professional basketball competition for elite clubs throughout Europe, organised by Euroleague Basketball Company, and it was the 48th season of the premier competition for European men's clubs overall. The 2004–05 season featured 24 competing teams, from 13 different countries. The final of the competition was held in Olimpiisky Arena, Moscow, Russia, with the defending champions, Maccabi Elite, defeating Tau Cerámica by a score of 90-78.

Regular season[edit]

The first phase was a regular season, in which the competing teams were drawn into three groups, each containing eight teams. Each team played every other team in its group at home and away, resulting in 14 games for each team in the first stage. The top 5 teams in each group and the best sixth-placed team advanced to the next round. The complete list of tiebreakers was provided in the lead-in to the Regular Season results.

If one or more clubs were level on won-lost record, tiebreakers were applied in the following order:

  1. Head-to-head record in matches between the tied clubs
  2. Overall point difference in games between the tied clubs
  3. Overall point difference in all group matches (first tiebreaker if tied clubs were not in the same group)
  4. Points scored in all group matches
  5. Sum of quotients of points scored and points allowed in each group match

Top 16[edit]

The surviving teams were divided into four groups of four teams each, and again a round robin system was adopted, resulting in 6 games each, with the two top teams advancing to the quarterfinals. Tiebreakers were identical to those used in the Regular Season.

The draw was held in accordance with Euroleague rules.

The teams were placed into four pools, as follows:

Level 1: The three group winners, plus the top-ranked second-place team

Level 2: The remaining second-place teams, plus the top two third-place teams

Level 3: The remaining third-place team, plus the three fourth-place teams

Level 4: The fifth-place teams, plus the top ranked sixth-place team

Each Top 16 group included one team from each pool. The draw was conducted under the following restrictions:

  1. No more than two teams from the same Regular Season group could be placed in the same Top 16 group.
  2. No more than two teams from the same country could be placed in the same Top 16 group.
  3. If there was a conflict between these two restrictions, (1) would receive priority.
