Olympiacos plans to file a complaint against a Panathinaikos fan for racist behavior towards Isaiah Canaan during the fourth match of the finals.

The incident occurred 9.5 seconds before the end of the third game, when a fan sitting opposite the Olympiacos bench at the OAKA allegedly made racist remarks against Canaan. The Olympiacos player noticed this and responded with sarcastic applause.

Olympiacos will use the footage to support its complaint, citing the new sports law that penalizes both the individual and the host team for such actions. The rivalry between Canaan and Kostas Sloukas has reportedly increased tensions among fans.

Canaan finished Game 3 with 14 points and two assists. The game report for the third game was unfavorable for Panathinaikos, who now face possible sanctions.
