The first cup of the year in Spanish basketball was lifted by Real Madrid!
The “Queen” took the “classic” with Barcelona, which they defeated 72-67 in the final of the Spanish Super Cup, held in Tenerife.
Starring for the winners were Cabasso (21 points, 4 rebounds), Abalde (13 points) and Deck (11 points). Rudi was decisive, who made an excellent defense shortly before the final and dropped the rebound after a misplaced three-pointer by Hanga.
On the other hand, for the Catalans, Mirotic was distinguished (22 points, 7 rebounds), while Nick Kalathis had 11 points, 5 rebounds and 3 assists, but in the last minutes he remained on the bench with 5 fouls.
Real won the Spanish Super Cup for the 3rd consecutive season, but also for the 7th in its history (polynomial of the institution)!
The quarters: 18-14, 31-32, 50-49, 72-67.
