Real Madrid have drawn level with another record which seemed almost unattainable, and they’ve done so in the most hotly-contested Euroleague campaign in living memory. With a win over Zalgiris Kaunas at the WiZink Center, the Whites picked up a thirteenth successive win, matching their streak from 2013/14.
Rudy was the key man with a memorable second-quarter performance that saw him post 17 points and 5/7 triples. Faced with the significant absences of Llull, Randolph and Deck, the man from the Balearic Islands came to the fore for Laso’s side once again, assisted by Thompkins (20 and 21 PIR) and another 3 players managing double figures (Campazzo 12 and 8 assists; Mickey 13; and Tavares 10). The madridistas finish the night as sole leaders.
