91-78: Real Madrid secure EuroLeague playoff spot

23 Feb 2019

The team’s first objective of the EuroLeague campaign: to clinch a playoff berth has now been accomplished and that now makes it seven seasons in a row. Real Madrid closed out the month of February with a win, the team’s 18th in the competition, against Bayern Munich at the WiZink Center, where the team hadn’t played in the competition since 24 January. Five days on from the controversial Copa del Rey final and without Rudy and Thompkins, the Whites managed to switch their focus in a tough contest that swung in the hosts’ favour thanks to a tremendous third stanza (29-13). Several players chipped in to help in offense, with Llull (15 points), heading up five players on double digits. Deck recorded the highest PIR on 18, whilst Tavares ended the match one rebound short of a double-double (10 and 9).
