Real Madrid have taken a huge step towards finishing the Regular Season in the Euroleague among the top four. The Whites overcame a direct rival in Panathinaikos, also bettering their basket average. Causeur was magisterial in what was his best Whites performance (26 points and PIR of 29), and more than made up for the absence of Europe’s best player, Luka Doncic. The Frenchman and Campazzo, who also recorded his best Euroleague figures (28), led from the front for the Whites in a tight game that was broken following an 18-5 in the third quarter. Tavares (14 points, 7 rebounds, 3 blocks and 23 PIR) was also superb.
