Huge win for Olympiakos over Greens

Olympiakos has already got the upper hand in the fight for the Greek title as it managed to defeat archrival Panathinaikos 64-60 away from home on Monday.

The Reds played a composed game against a rather disorganized home side and deserved their win that puts them on the driving seat in their effort to retain their domestic title.

Olympiakos led throughout the game at the Olympic Sports Hall with great shooting rates all around, while Panathinaikos tried to turn things around with a late rally in the game that slashed its deficit from 14 points (40-26 just before half-time) to just four in the end, but could not do any better.

Along with Olympiakos, Kolossos and Panionios have also made it two out of two in the league, with the Rhodes team seeing off Ilisiakos 65-49 away and Panionios beating Peristeri 79-65 at home.

In other games over the weekend KAO Dramas defeated Apollon Patras 92-89 away, PAOK thrashed Ikaros Kallitheas 71-48 and AGO Rethymnou downed visiting Aris 68-50.

Finally, newly-promoted Panelefsiniakos scored its first ever win in the top flight, beating Kavala 87-74.
