92-89: Comeback to secure victory over Olimpia Milan

21 Mar 2019

A win clinched with a stunning comeback, third place in the bag (already assured following Efes’ loss), and a tribute to Felipe Reyes as he overtook Navarro as the Euroleague’s all-team appearance record holder (342). It was a fantastic night at the WiZink Center for Real Madrid, who overcame Olimpia Milan despite the Italian side racing to an 18-point lead in the second quarter, the European champions’ hunger proving too much alongside their wonderful second-half defense, restricting their opponents’ to just 33 points.

The Whites’ interior was crucial: Tavares (9 points, 9 rebounds and a PIR of 21), Ayón (11, 10 and 18), Randolph (13) and Thompkins (9), assisted by 14 points from Llull, who becomes the Euroleague’s sixth-highest all-time scorer. Win number 21 ensures that next time out, the Whites could reach second place as Fenerbahçe and CKSA are set to lock horns.
