Olympiacos Piraeus has won its second consecutive Greek League title with a 3-1 series win over the arch-rival Panathinaikos Athens. Olympiacos had a 35-63 lead with 2:46 left in the third quarter in Game 4 of their best-of-five final series on Thursday night when the game was suspended, and never continued, due to fan violence. Sasha Vezenkov and Alec Peters scored 11 apiece, and Thomas Walkup scored 10 points for Olympiacos, which made 11-of-17 three-pointers in the game. Olympiacos completed this season's domestic double, having won Greek Cup title back in February. This is the Reds' 14th Greek League title, and second consecutive after a Panathinaikos' run of five straight league titles between 2017 and 2021.

Basket were few and far between for Panathinaikos, and Olympiacos closed the half with a 2-11 run, taking 26-48 lead into halftime. Olympiacos went on to score the first 7 points of the third quarter, increasing the margin to 31-63, before the game was suspended.
