Real leaves Tenerife as the leader
It was the third game of the week for Real, all of them as the visiting team. The Whites' last contest resulting in an unexpected loss in Lithuania, Chus Mateo's men were extremely concentrated in Tenerife.

Tight defenses on both ends brought the game to the end of the first quarter with a minimal advantage for the visitors (15-16) despite Tavares' dominance. The game was again even in the second period (29-29, min 17) but the Whites scored two threes by the end reaching halftime with a good lead, 31-38.

Real Madrid tried to extend the advantage while Tenerife made its best to come back. The visitors threatened to brake the game twice, but Vidorreta's squad was holding on thanks to Huertas, Shermadini and Fitipaldo (45-50, min 30).

Madrid's bets minutes of the game were about to come, as the Whites scored five consecutive three pointers (2 Cornelie, 2 Hezonja, Causeur), opening an 8 point gap. Tenerife tried to fight back but Real was more accurate than the locals, and the Whites succeeded to come out on top, 67-80.
