Real Madrid have completed a stunning turnaround in the Euroleague play-off in the space of 48 hours, winning the fourth match against Anadolu Efes at the WiZink Center to level the tie and force a fifth and deciding game in Istanbul (Tuesday 4, 7:30pm CEST). The team showed what they were made of once more, proving that the greater the challenge, the higher they rise. They were forced to produce a heroic comeback yet again, overturning a 13-point deficit in the final 7 minutes thanks to a 23-4 run.
The madridistas had started the game strongly but fell behind as the minutes ticked by, only for an inspired Garuba to pick them up with his best performance in a Whites’ jersey (24 points, 12 rebounds and PIR of 30). Carroll was another key man, with 20 points of his own. A place in the Final Four will be decided in Istanbul.
