ATHENS – The two traditional powers in Greek basketball, Olympiakos’ Reds and Panathinaikos’ Greens, won tough games but are still behind upstart PAOK of Thessaloniki.

Olympiakos overcame Apollon, 67-56 in Patra while Panathinaikos defeated host Nea Kifissia, 72-66 while PAOK was beating AGO Rethymnou, 79-71.

Usually, the Greek league is superflous as virtually no other teams have a chance to catch the big-money spenders at Olympiakos and Panathinaikos so this season has seen a surprise with PAOK.

In other games, Aris defeated Panelefsiniakos, 79-61 and AEK ripped Korivos Amaliadas 76-67. Last place Panionios fired coach Vangelis Alexandris, replacing him with former player and assistant coach Chris Hougaz.

The only league game to take place next weekend will be the Thessaloniki derby between Aris and PAOK that had been abandoned in October for crowd trouble, but the sports judge ruled it must be replayed.
