Real Madrid got the better of Herbalife Gran Canaria in the first Group B game of the League ACB Final Phase, currently underway in Valencia. Laso’s men marked their return to competitive action with a superb display that left Herbalife Gran Canaria with no chance. A spectacular start saw the Whites race to a 37-16 lead in the first quarter, with 8/11 triples to boot, setting the game firmly in their favour despite a late surge from the opposition. Llull, with 19 points and a PIR of 20, led from the front, while a further 3 players finished in double figures: Carroll, 19; Randolph, 11; and Laprovittola, 11. Causeur made his 100th league appearance for the madridistas.
