Despite missing Nikola Milutinov, Olympiacos was in charge in Round 5 of Greece’s Basket League Regular Season.

The Reds defeated PAOK mateco, 77-63, in PAOK Sports Arena on Sunday.

In dominating fashion, Moustapha Fall posted a triple-double, the 9th registered in the history of the Greek League, leading his side to 4-1 at the domestic level. The French center went for ten points, 11 assists, and ten rebounds, lasting 35:33 in Thessaloniki. He became the ninth player to register a triple-double in any game of Greece’s top-flight division.

Dealing with knee discomfort, Serbian center Milutinov was ruled out for the trip. Luke Sikma (Achilles) and Shaquielle McKissic (knee) stayed on the injury list for the team coached by Giorgos Bartzokas.

Kostas Papanikolaou logged a team-high 17 points behind 7/9 field goals. His contribution extended to six rebounds, three assists, and two steals. Nigel Williams-Goss followed with 16 points for the defending champions of the Basket League.

PAOK played without Jamuni McNeace, practically for the entire game. Recently recovering from a separate injury, the 27-year-old center lasted only 41 seconds before suffering an injury in his right knee.

Lithuanian import Laurynas Beliauskas dropped a game-high 20 points for the Basketball Champions League outfit coached by Fotis Takianos.
