Real Madrid runs over Valencia in the last quarter for a valuable win

Real Madrid runs over Valencia in the last quarter for a valuable win
It was a great clash in Valencia from the very first minute: Real's best player was Alberto Abalde and the locals guide was Hermannson who would be the game's top scorer at the end (20 points). Peñarroya's men were able to take the first 10 minutes with a 3 point margin, 23-20.

During the second period Rivero took Hermannson's relief for Valencia while Poirier (5 rebounds during the quarter) and Sergio Llull (10 points) helped Real complete a 16-22 run for Laso's men who held the lead by halftime (39-42, min. 20).

Real stepped up coming off the locker room: Heurtel and Rudy scored from the distance and Tavares and Poirier teamed eventually in the frontcourt locking up Real's defense, but Hermannson and Dimitrijevic's talent was enough for keeping their team afloat facing the last quarter (60-64, min. 30).

But the Whites fourth quarters this season proof to be excellent: again Rudy and Heurtel started a 0-9 run (60-73, min. 32) that definitely knocked down Valencia's hopes for the game. Real cruised until the end of the contest ever since for a valuable victory in Valencia (79-93, min. 40).
