Panathinaikos and Olympiacos continued their dominance of the Greek Basket League as the giants of Greek basketball posted double-digit wins away from home.
On Sunday, Panathinaikos improved to 6-0 on the season with a comfortable 90-73 win over lowly Kymis at the Tassos Kambouris Indoor Hall.
Chris Singleton led Panathinaikos with 35 points as the American enjoyed a strong shooting night, including 6/8 shooting from three-point range.
Panathinaikos took control early with a 30 point first quarter, but Kymis provided one of their better offensive frames of the season to post an impressive 23 points on the Greek Champions. A 14-10 run by Kymis in the second frame teed up an interesting second half, but Panathinaikos would prove their steel with a 31-17 run in the third quarter before managed to keep their lead intact in the final frame.
On Monday, Olympiacos cruised to a comfortable win themselves as the Piraeus giants thrashed Kolossos 72-54.
Hollis Thompson led the Erythrolefki with another solid performance as Olympiacos continue to be without influential leader Vassilis Spanoulis. Thompson’s 16 points and 8 rebounds were matched by Kolossos’ Marvin Jones, but the scoring depth of Olympiacos’ bench would prove overwhelming for Kolossos.
Olympiacos made a strong start with a 26-17 run in the first quarter, before extending their lead to double digits by halftime. Kolossos made a push for a second half comeback in the third frame, but they could only cut the Olympiacos lead by two. That would prove to be devastating for Kolossos as Olympiacos only added to their lead in the final frame.
