Barztokas played professional basketball in the Maroussi club, before some serious knee injuries (torn right knee ACL and later torn left knee ACL) ended his career at age 27.
Bartzokas began working as a basketball coach at the age of 22, while he was still also playing club basketball. He was the assistant coach of Panagiotis Giannakis for several years in Maroussi. In 2006, he signed on as the head coach of Olympia Larissa. That same year with Olympia, he managed to reach the playoffs of the Greek Basket League for the first time in the club's history. The team finished in 7th place, and repeated their playoffs qualification the next year, during the Greek Basket League 2007–08 season.
In 2009, Bartzokas became the head coach of Maroussi. In 2010, he was named the Greek League Best Coach. He became the head coach of Panionios in 2010.
Bartzokas became the head coach of the Greek EuroLeague club Olympiacos, in June 2012. With Olympiacos, he won the 2012–13 season championship of the EuroLeague, becoming the first Greek coach in history to win this title. He was also named the EuroLeague Coach of the Year in 2013. He also won the 2013 FIBA Intercontinental Cup with Olympiacos.
On July 5, 2015, Bartzokas signed a 2-year deal with PBC Lokomotiv-Kuban of the VTB United League and the EuroLeague. In the EuroLeague, he coached the team to a first-ever Final Four appearance, after beating FC Barcelona 3–2 in the EuroLeague Playoffs.
On July 8, 2016, he signed a three-year contract with the Spanish team FC Barcelona of the Liga ACB. After one season, Barcelona parted ways with him. On June 30, 2017, Bartzokas returned to the VTB United League, in order to be the new head coach of the Russian club Khimki. He signed a two-year contract.
