Valencia emphatically achieved 2/2 in the Euroleague, “dissolving” the “ghost” of Real, with 93-77 away from home.
Bojan Dubljevic was the absolute MVP, after scoring 24 points (1/3 triples, 6/9 doubles, 4/4 shots) and safely leading his team to a great victory. Close were both Toby with 14 points and Kalinic, who had 10 points from a very early age.
For the losers, Cabasso and Tavares escaped from general mediocrity. The Argentine guard scored 14 points, while the second stopped at 15 points and 7 rebounds. Rudy Fernandez and Trey Tombkins were in double figures with 12 points each.
The game was very balanced in the first minutes, the two teams went point-by-point, with Real maintaining a short header. The Madrilenians reached the first period twice in the first period with five points (12-7 in 4 ‘and 19-14 in 8’) with Cabasso completing the ten minutes with 8 points.
The players of Pablo Lasso entered the second half with a bang and reached the difference of seven points in the 13th minute (29-22). From there, however, everything changed. Valencia ran a 15-3 run and led 32-37, a difference they maintained until the break (39-44), thanks to Dubljevic, who had 14 points at halftime.
The Montenegrin center entered the second half with a bang and with the help of Klemen Prepelic they gave a double-digit difference to the “bats”. Valencia took the lead with 17 points twice, just before the final of the season, however Real found points from the free throw line and at the end of the third quarter found both teams at 53-68.
In the last period it has not changed. On the one hand the psychology was at its peak and on the other at the heights. Valencia did what they wanted and kept the difference over 20 points. Real just reduced to 77-93 in the end.
The ten minutes: 19-17, 39-44, 53-68, 77-93.
