ATHENS, Greece (AP) -Guards Kyle Hines and Vassilis Spanoulis scored 19 points apiece Friday to lead Olympiakos to a 76-69 victory over Italy's Montepaschi Siena and a berth in the Euroleague Final Four.

Guard Nikos Zisis and forward David Andersen scored 15 each for Siena.

Olympiakos won the best-of-five series 3-1 to join Barcelona and CSKA at the Final Four, to be played in Istanbul on May 11-13. Panathinaikos and Maccabi Tel Aviv are tied at 2 games apiece with the decider to be played in Athens next Thursday.

The match was tied at 61 with less than five minutes to go, but Olympiakos used an 8-0 run to take the lead for good. Siena closed to 72-69 on three free throws from Zisis 59.5 seconds from time but could get no closer.

It's the sixth Final Four trip for Olympiakos.
