Olympiacos outlasts Monaco in Game 5 thriller, 94-88

Olympiacos Piraeus is heading to the Final Four after downing AS Monaco 94-88 in a memorable Game 5 thriller at the Peace and Friendship Stadium to win their series 3-2.

The early stages were low scoring, but both offences exploded in the second quarter, with a partial score of 30-35 over those ten minutes giving Monaco a 41-48 interval lead. Olympiacos rallied after the break, and there were several lead changes as the game moved towards a thrilling conclusion. Kostas Sloukas inspired Olympiacos through the latter stages, and the Reds held on to spark scenes of joyous celebrations.

Kevin Durant has a lot of fans around the world. Greek basketball fans aren’t among them.

Durant found that out the hard way on Wednesday when he attended a Game 5 EuroLeague playoff matchup between Olympiacos Piraeus and AS Monaco in Piraeus, Greece — and was met with a healthy serving of jeers.

It is presumed Durant was booed because he was there in support of former teammate Mike James and was seen cheering for James in Game 4.

Emma Stone was spotted at the game. She is in Athens to promote her upcoming short, BLEAT, which premieres this Friday.
