Pablo Laso continues to enlarge his legend at Real Madrid. Close to the 10th anniversary of his signing, he became the coach with the most wins in the club’s history on Thursday. He added 595, tied with Lolo Sainz and with the victory in the third match of the semifinal against Valencia Basket, he already leads the statistics alone.
The victory also served Madrid to qualify for the final of the Endesa League. Since Laso arrived, his team has participated in 40 tournaments (not counting the suspended Euroleague last year) and has been in 29 finals, of which he has won 20. An extraordinary efficiency. In the ACB only the one of the previous season was lost, when the competition in the bubble of Valencia was resumed.
The Whites have reached the final of the Endesa League in a very convulsive season. Facundo Campazzo’s marches to the NBA and numerous injuries have damaged a team that has never lowered its arms. He won the Endesa Super Cup at the beginning of the course, lost the Cup final and stayed at the gates of the Final Four after a colossal effort against champion Efes.
The Endesa League final will begin next Sunday at 6.30 pm at the WiZink Center. Madrid’s rival will come out of the third clash between Barcelona and Lenovo Tenerife, which takes place tonight at the Palau.
