It is “only” a qualification for the Final 4 of the Euroleague, but the supporters of Olympiacos celebrated it as a title. This Wednesday evening, the Greek club overcame AS Monaco in match 5 of their Euroleague quarter-final, after an unbreathable money time (94-88). The atmosphere of the Salle de la Paix et de l’Amitié, described as unique in the world, did honor to its reputation.

Incandescent throughout the meeting, the Greek room exploded even before the buzzer when she realized that her team was going to win. With six seconds left to play and the Monegasques were therefore logically still on the pitch, dozens of supporters entered the court. After a long moment of hesitation, the game was able to resume to let the last seconds slip away.

Durant: “The Apocalypse”

The following? Deafening noises of agricultural bombs, smoke bombs by the dozens and crazy Greek supporters on the floor, this time rid of the Monegasques. Present in the stands, as during match 4 in Monaco, to support his former teammate Mike James, NBA superstar Kevin Durant could not believe it.

“The apocalypse”, wrote the Nets winger on Twitter in the caption of a video showing the atmosphere at the end of the meeting. Before putting on a layer of it a few minutes later: “Bring a smoke bomb in a NBA room if you want it and you could end up at the Rikers”, laughed the double NBA champion, in reference to Rikers Island, which houses the largest prison in New York.

On the ground, Olympiacos, second in the regular season, therefore snatched their qualification for the Final 4, in Belgrade. On May 19, the Greeks will face Efes Istanbul in the semi-finals, while the other poster of the last four will pit Barça against Real Madrid.
