Real Madrid enjoyed a superb win over Fenerbahçe at one of the Euroleague’s most demanding venues (65-94). The Whites were in Istanbul just four days on from winning their 28th Copa del Rey, and despite significant injury problems, they still managed a convincing performance. Based around a solid defense, Laso’s team gradually added to their lead quarter by quarter, to run out comfortable winners against the Turkish side. Carroll (20 points and PIR of 19) and Tavares (16 and 19) were the standout performers in the nineteenth Euroleague win which puts the madridistas on the edge of a play-off spot. Nakic made his competition debut.
