Real Madrid runs a 2-1 record so far. They have entered the match against Monaco in a wild mood (they led 44-19 in the second quarter), but in the last 5 minutes, they almost let the game slip through their hands. The Madrilenians won 94-86 at the end, inside Wizink Center, with Yabusele, Rudy and Llull stepping up when (around the 35th minute) the team from the Principality was leading the score by 2 points (83-81).
Three players had double-digit scoring performances for the team of Pablo Laso: Yabousele (18 points), Heurtel (13 points, 5 rebounds, 7 assists) and Causeur (12 points). At the same time, some valuable solutions came from center Tavares (9 points, 6 rebounds).
Panathinaikos (record 1-2) came very close to a significant victory in Vitoria but in the end the ball got «stuck» in their hands and lost the game 81-79. Playmaker Kendrick Perry was very positive this time (9 points, 2 assists, 2 steals in 15 minutes of play), while Papapetrou (22 points) was the leading scorer for the “Greens”. Makon, with 13 points, was the only other double-digit scorer. Okaro White showed some positive signs (7 points, 5 rebounds, 2 steals) but will need to try harder.
Big Man George Papagiannis came from the bench injured but contributed 2 points and 8 rebounds in just 14 mins on the court. Papagiannis felt some intense discomfort in his lower back and is highly doubtful for tonight’s game. Nedovic played 10 mins and had a relatively low flight with just 5 points.
