Barcelona made a dominant performance on both ends of the floor and decimated Olympiacos in Piraeus (55-76).

The “Blaugrana” led from start to finish and cruised to an easy victory on the road that helps them maintain a top-four push.

The Catalans made an excellent start (6-27), but the “Reds” turned things around and cut the deficit to six, behind a 15-0 run (21-27).

The visitors, though, brought their advantage back to double digits at halftime and never looked back (28-38). They led by as many as 23 points (49-72) and triumphed over their opponents.

Chris Singleton led the winners with 18 points, with Adam Hanga and Ante Tomic adding 11 and 10 points, respectively.

Nikola Milutinov and Janis Strelnieks scored 13 points apiece for the losing squad.

Both teams now have identical records (12-9), but Barcelona has the tie-breaker.
