Musa and Hezonja combine and lift Real in Milan

Musa and Hezonja combine and lift Real in Milan
Real was back to winning ways in Milan, thanks to an excellent offensive game by Dzanan Musa, who scored 25 points with a 64% field goal percentage, and a 31 PIR.

Real Madrid was off to a good start (5-12, min 5) but Milan was able to get into the game thanks to the newcomer Mitrou-Long. The first quarter finished with a 3 point advantage for the visitors, 20-23.

The local's point guard kept accurate from the distance for Milan's advantage (29-26, min 12), but Hezonja was already on fire, as he scored 12 points in the second quarter. Pangos took Mitrou-Long's baton for Olimpia Milan crowning the period with a buzzer beater three, going to the locker room with 14 points. The locals led 50-47.

The third quarter was for Real and for Musa, who scored 9 points for a total of 17 at the end of the third period. The run of the 10 minutes was 11-20 for the Whites who faced the crucial last 10 minutes leading 61-67.

Messina's squad made efforts to come back at the scoreboard but Real's defense was tighter and Milan was not as accurate from the long range as during the first half. Tavares was huge on defense and again Musa kept scoring in the most important moments, finishing with 8 more points.

Valuable win for Real, 77-83, on a difficult Arena for a 3-3 balance in Euroleague so far.
