Madrid were the ones who they started keeping the rhythm of the meeting with a Barça in tow for practically the entire first half. Mainly it was their outside players who scored the points with a great performance by Campazzo, Deck and an exciting Abalde that it was more and that the white color did not seem to weigh.
Nor did the newcomer need much integration at Barça Nick Calathes who was the great orchestra conductor of the Catalans, supported by the Mirotic’s tireless work on painting, with great details from the perimeter. Barça suffered with the rotations of Jasikevicius, but managed to detach himself to reach the break with one point advantage.

The third quarter still left more equality between the two teams that could not get off the scoreboard, victims of inaccuracies on the part of both. The defenses were the culprits number one that the last period was reached with a low 50-49 for those of the capital. Blood and pure passion also on the benches between Jasikevicius and Laso, a duel between enthusiasm and seniority on the benches of the ACB.
Barcelona started by taking off in the last quarter with a 0-7, but the advantage did not last long, since Campazzo’s entrance revolutionized the Madrid game, while Calathes and Mirotic were diluted at Barça. Almost all the points of the whites bore the signature of the Argentine, and that added to a essential defensive improvement Laso’s men ended up giving victory to Real Madrid.
