Giannakopoulos reacted on Instagram right after the game and today he released the following written statement.

“Basketball, especially the way it’s played during the last few years, is a sport which unfortunately became increasingly based on the so-called physical game.

It is perfectly natural for the referees to miss some calls. My concern is that they are repeatedly missing calls at the expense of Panathinaikos.

I am sure that in the high levels of the competition there’s concern on this matter and there will be exemplified punishments for the culprits for these ongoing outbreaks of injustice”.
