83-92: All the way to the EuroLeague final

19 May 2018

Real Madrid has booked its place in the 2018 EuroLeague final. Nobody said it’d be easy and everyone was fully aware that the team faced a big challenge in the shape of none other than this season’s leading team, the formidable CSKA Moscow. And to make the challenge all the greater, the Whites had to come back from being 30-20 down in the first quarter. Madrid overturned CSKA’s lead in an impressive 20-minutes spell between the 10th and 20th minute in which it recorded a 43-26 run and produced some excellent defending. However, the contest wasn’t settled until the dying stages, when Madrid displayed character and produced the sort of performance reserved for the biggest occasions.

Doncic (16 points, seven rebounds), Ayón (12 and 11 rebounds) and Thompkins (12 and 6), who all recorded a PIR of 18, took their places alongside  Llull (16 points) to lead an attack that saw six players end the game with double digits on valuation. The final hurdle lying in Madrid’s way is the holders, Fenerbahçe on Sunday.
