Basketball turned into basket-brawl at the Arcopolis-Eurobank Tournament in Athens.
The final game of the tournament, between Serbia and Greece, came to an early end Thursday at the Athens Olympic Arena when an ugly, bench-clearing brawl broke out.
Players from both sides exchanged punches and kick before a handful of spectators joined the fray. Videos of the scrap show chairs being thrown.
Greece was up 74-73 in the second half when the brawl broke out. Officials decided to end the game rather than have the fight flare up again.
The brawl started when Greek forward Antonis Fotsis took offence to a hard foul by Serb guard Milos Teodosic. Serbia's Nenad Krstic, who plays for the Oklahoma City Thunder, intervened and grabbed Fotsis by the throat.
Krstic then threw a chair at Greek centre Sofoklis Schortanitis and hit Yannis Bouroussis.
When the players moved into toward the locker rooms, they fought in the tunnel under the stands.
Trouble started six minutes after Serbia coach Dusan Ivkovic was ejected after picking up his second technical foul.
