Anabumboula in the final at SEF, with Giorgos Bartzokas calling for a technical penalty before Walkup was reinstated to Fal.
Thursday night (9/11) was another one of those heart-breaking nights at SEF. Olympiacos was +10 in the first period, fell to -18 in the second, in the second half they made an extra effort and touched the victory, but a basket by Cody Miller-McIntyre at 0.7″ gave Baskonia a huge double in the 7th game of the EuroLeague.
But what happened in the time left after Miller-McIntyre’s shot, with Piraeus having possession in half the field and the chance for the winning shot? Isaiah Kanan heard the whistle and started his move before referee Belosevic warned Baskonia’s player (Mike Kochar) for the touchline, resulting in Olympiakos’ play being “broken” and Bartzokas being informed that the Basque tall man had fallen violation. In other words, that he stepped on the line, which he did not step on, as can be seen from the video.
The red and white coach complained to the referees, asked for a technical penalty, it was also said that Belosevic was late to pass the ball to Walkup and in all this commotion we needed a mini-break to calm the spirits and finish the match with Walkup’s pass and poor finish by Fal near the basket.
