Fenerbahce Beko Istanbul used a big fourth quarter to roll to an 83-62 victory over fellow Turkish side Turk Telekom Ankara at the Cevat Soydas Tournament in Bursa. Fenerbahce jumped ahead early but could not really pull away as it led 33-26 at the half and the score was just 54-50 after three quarters. Fenerbahce finally broke through in the final frame, taking the last 10 minutes 29-12 for the comfortable win. Marial Shayok was leading scorer for the winners with 18 points while Nando De Colo collected 13 points and 7 assists.

The other two Turkish Airlines EuroLeague teams playing on Thursday lost their games. Reigning champion Anadolu Efes Istanbul dropped an emotional friendly against Partizan NIS Belgrade 92-85 as the Serbian side bid farewell to one of its former greats Novica Velickovic and paid tribute to the legendary coach Dusan Ivkovic, who died earlier in the day. Partizan led 22-12 early on but Efes raced back into the game with a 1-11 surge to knot the game. It was a tight game throughout after that, the score being tied 23-23 after 10 minutes and Partizan up 46-45 at halftime. Partizan led 66-64 after three quarters, and the home side pulled away 78-71 before Efes trimmed the gap to three points. But Rade Zagorac hit a three-pointer with 1:14 minutes left and Zach LeDay added a triple of his own with 33 seconds remaining to decide the game for good. Efes, who was playing without Shane Larkin, Chris Singleton, Tibor Pleiss and Krunoslav Simon, was paced by Vasilije Micic with 16 points while Filip Petrusev had 15 points and Adrien Moerman scored 11 points in the loss.

Maccabi Playtika Tel Aviv meanwhile played its first game of the preseason after a series of COVID-19 cases, and the team lost 77-83 to Bnei Herzliya. Maccabi fell behind early and was down 15-26 after the first quarter. The second quarter was slightly better and the score was 37-43 at intermission. Maccabi was able to tie the game 43-43 but Herzliya went on a 0-14 run and led 50-63 after the third quarter. Maccabi fought back once again and actually pulled ahead 77-76 with under 2 minutes to play. But Andy Van Vliett drained a three-pointer to switch the momentum. James Nunnally was Maccabi’s leading scorer with 18 points while Keenan Evans and Jake Cohen both scored 11 points.
