Real Madrid outplayed Obradoiro in the fourth quarter to grab a 78 – 68 win and register its third straight Spanish ACB League victory.

Obradoiro was up 48 – 51 at the end of the third period until Sergio Llull, who was scoreless until that moment, dropped six points in a row to give Real Madrid the lead. The Blancos proceeded to dominate and even go up by double figures when Llull sealed the win for his team with a 3-pointer for the 74 – 60 with three minutes to play.

Llull finished with 12 points while Vincent Poirier had 13 points and eight rebounds. Fabien Causeur added 11 points.

Henry Ellenson scored 20 points for Obradoiro.

Earlier, Joventut Badalona beat Baskonia 72 – 61 behind Vladimir Brondziasky’s 17 points and seven rebounds. Baskonia (that was minus Rokas Giedraitis due to a sprain) needed a lot more than Wade Baldwin’s 25 points and five rebounds.
