Madrid ends Zenit's road streak

Madrid ends Zenit's road streak
A choral play, with 5 players scoring 10 or more points, gave Real Madrid a new win, first Zenit's defeat on the road in the Euroleague.

Tavares reached double figures both in scoring (11) and rebounding (13), adding 3 blocks and making it very complicated for the visitors to find good options in offense. Laso's men should have gotten to halftime with a bigger advantage (36-31 min 20) but Real was not accurate enough.

Real's run in the third quarter had no answer from Zenit and the deficit for the visitors reached a new max by mid period, 56-34 min 26. A visitor's last effort gave them a 3-8 run late in the quarter (59-42, min 30).

Zenit's best minutes were about to come: Hollins signed 9 consecutive points for a score of 62-51, while Abalde and Thompkins kept scoring for Real. Despite Pascual's men efforts Madrid managed its advantage for a good victory at home (79-72).
