Peristeri prevailed by a single point…

Panionios guard Giorgos Diamantopoulos scores two of his game-high 28 points beset by two Peristeri players. Despite Diamantopoulos’s efforts, in his last match with Panionios, Peristeri prevailed by a single point (86-85) to grab fourth place and home-court advantage from Aris and Maroussi, which finished fifth and sixth in the regular season, with the same points. In the first round of the play-offs that will determine the new Basketball League champion, first-place Panathinaikos plays eighth-place Ionikos, AEK (second) plays PAOK (seventh), Olympiakos (third) plays Maroussi (sixth) and Peristeri (fourth) plays Aris (fifth).
