ATHENS, Greece (AP) -- Panathinaikos withstood a furious rally by host Olympiakos to win the fourth game in the best-of-five Greek league playoff finals 67-65 Sunday.

Stephane Lasme led Panathinaikos with 17 points and nine rebounds, but also gave Olympiakos the chance to win the game when he missed one of two free throws with 2.5 seconds to go.

Olympiakos could not find an opening for a winning 3-pointer, and Vassilis Spanoulis' try for a tying basket bounced off the rim.

Panathinaikos led throughout most of the game, and was ahead 66-53 halfway through the final quarter, but a series of missed shots gave Olympiakos a chance at a comeback.

Bryant Dunston led Olympiakos with 15 points.

The deciding game will be played at Panathinaikos' Athens Olympic Arena on Wednesday.
