Reds and Greens stroll in league before trips to Spain

By George Georgakopoulos

Panathinaikos and Olympiakos hardly broke a sweat during their Sunday games for the Greek league against relegation-threatened opposition, but third-placed Panionios suffered another loss and is now threatened by PAOK.

A few days before their crucial matches for the Euroleague in Spain, Panathinaikos beat Ikaros 85-64 at Halkida and Olympiakos thrashed Panelefsiniakos 94-64. They both struggled in the first half of their matches, but then put an end to their struggling opponents’ aspirations for an upset.

Later this week Olympiakos visits Unicaja Malaga and Panathinaikos travels to Barcelona.

The upset did come on Rhodes though, where local Kolossos took a… colossal step toward safety with its 75-64 win over Panionios on Saturday. The result means that the Nea Smyrni club is now just one point ahead of PAOK, that defeated the season’s surprise package, Nea Kifissia 92-83.

In other weekend games AGO Rethymnou saw off KAO Dramas 77-72, Aris beat bottom club Ilisiakos 63-51 in a game far tighter that the score reveals, and Trikala stunned Apollon at Patras with a 74-67 win.
