Movistar Estudiantes knew that Wednesday night was going to be an important game and that the rival was going to demand maximum concentration. For this reason, the people of Madrid went into the game highly psyched, thus marking a high defensive level and knowing how to run the court to be able to impose their style of play. A start that once again had the presence of Javi Beiran in the starting five to sign a solid partial in just a few actions (10-2). Palmer AM Palma stopped the game, but his rival did not seem willing to relinquish control, repeating the partial again to fly in the fastest lap at the end of the first quarter (33-11). The game began to break down and there was little a Balearic team could do now that, despite scoring the first basket of the second quarter from 6.75, continued to give up in each action until they were 33 points behind on the scoreboard (60- 27). In this way, the second half became a mere formality in which the inside game of Movistar Estudiantes knew how to maintain the differences against a rival that was gradually recovering some of its offensive virtues. Thus, between Felipe dos Anjos and Kevin Larsen they were able to close a clash with which they once again reached the top of the table (105-71).
