Third consecutive European win

Third consecutive European win
It was a thrilling game in Monaco, between two of the best European teams, as none of the squads ever lead by more than 7 points during the contest.

Real's 14/31 threes (9/17 between Hezonja, 6, and Llull, 3) compensated the Whites' 18 turnovers. On the other hand, Monaco's poor 4/18 three point field goals were too much taking into account that Real grabbed 10 more rebounds than Mónaco (36 for the Whites).

Monaco and Real exchanged leads during the first half of the game in which Hezonja scored 20 points. The visitors were able to get to halftime with a 4 points advantage, 46-50.

Real went through its worst minutes in the game during the first 6 minutes of the 3rd period: a 14-3 (60-53) run for the French team due to the Whites turning over the ball easily too many times. With Real's big men in foul trouble the visitors decided to play small-ball, and the scoreboard rewarded their adjustments (71-70, min 30).

The Whites good work on the long range and keeping control of the boards even with a small five on court were pivotal for the game's development. One of Hanga's threes in the final quarter was a statement from Real (82-87, min 37).

As Monaco made a last effort through Hall and Blossomgame, Hezonja scored his last 3 of the game, and Real's last 5 points came off the free throw line, for the final 91-95.
