Greece earned another victory as well as a minor scare.

Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 25 points in 19 minutes before departing the game midway through the third quarter with an ankle injury in Greece’s 90-69 triumph over Estonia in the EuroBasket tournament’s Group C finals on Thursday.

Antetokounmpo was definitely hobbling after the game, but he was able to participate in the on-court postgame celebration and exchange handshakes with Estonia’s players and coaches.

Greece coach Dimitrios Itoudis stated that Antetokounmpo received ice and treatment but did not appear concerned.

“Everything is fine,” Itoudis remarked.

Antetokounmpo shot 9-for-10 from the floor and averaged 29.5 points on 58% shooting in 26-12 minutes per game in four group-stage games.

Greece’s Kostas Sloukas scored 11 points (5-0).

With 19 points, Siim-Sander Vene led Estonia (1-4). Kerr Kriisa and Janari Joesaar each got 12 points, while Kristjan Kitsing had 10.
