Real wins its 36th Spanish championship on a Finals series dominated by the Whites
Real Madrid got its 36th Spanish Championship after wining at the Wizink Center the 4th game of the Finals in front of FC Barcelona. Edy Tavares' display in Real's victory was overwhelming as the Catalan squad found no tools to stop the center.

Both teams were inaccurate from the start which was eventually beneficial for a lost FC Barcelona. The first 10 minutes finished with a poor 13-10 for the Whites. But the second quarter launched with an 11-0 led by Llull and Rudy Fernández that threatened to brake the game for the first time (24-10, min 13).

Jasikevicius' men recovered their long range accuracy right on time and 5 threes from the red and blue leveled the score as the game reached the hafltime (34-33, min 20).

Real was again better in the third period, still ruling on both paints and grabbing offensive rebounds, Causeur and Tavares were Real's bastions but FC Barcelona kept scoring from 6,75 meters and the squad succeeded to overturn the score (55-56, min 29) even though Poirier with 2 free throws got Real leading again entering the final quarter (57-56, min 30).

The visitors ran out of ideas and accuracy in the last period while Real's players knew everyone's role on court: Hanga, Yabusele, Deck and specially Tavares and Causeur. The French guard scored 8 points in the quarter and Tavares was unstoppable and omnipresent.

Real Madrid led by 8 (69-61) with 4 minutes to go, and Barcelona showed no energy (and no accuracy) for coming back. The locals got the final victory 81-74, and the Spanish Championship to crown a very tough year.
