A set of the match between Real Madrid and Red Star.

The Real Madrid surpassed (79-67) this Thursday the Red Star on matchday 11 of the Euroleague, held in a WiZink Center where the white box only adds victories, the latter with a good third quarter to make a difference and take the lead with 9-2.

Those of Pablo Laso They started well and they remembered the way with the exit of changing rooms so as not to fail against a rival with a couple of victories in recent years at the Palace. The Serbian threat lost integers with a 25-14 in the third quarter, and because of a good game in defense of the locals, plus the good numbers of Walter Tavares (15 points, 4 rebounds and 4 blocks), Vincent Poirier (14 and 8), Thomas Heurtel or Adam Hanga (11 and 6) .

The award was juicy, being in command of the Euroleague after the demand for a double day in a fight with Armani Milan and Barça, but it was difficult to get it out after a first part of breaking stone. Those of Laso started with good defenses from Hanga but it was necessary to put them to the other side. Tavares marked differences against Kuzmic and distributed blocks for a 14-5, the visitors only scoring through Dobric.

The entry of Zirbes in the Serbs changed the script that many attendees placidly predicted. The powerful German player could with Tavares and was left with gasoline for Poirier. The Madrid pavilion cooled as well as his team and at the beginning of the second quarter the light ended (16-16). The little success of three in both teams kept hostilities low.

Poirier scored points in the paint and Rudy Fernández came in with a couple of good plays, although on the bench Laso was already thinking more about solutions for the break (32-32). He needed to uncover a lot in attack on the premises, more mobility, more searching for the basket (only four free throws in the first half) and put Heurtel, Causeur, Llull or even Yabusele into a game.

Much important name, more with the five casualties of Laso, without contributing but who was encouraged in the second half. Tavares returned very grown, wanting to remove the resentment of his expulsion against ‘Fuenla’ on Sunday, with 11 points and another pair of blocks. Heurtel scored nine points and Causeur another five, all with the defense of the first minutes, the first stone always.

With a pair of triples, Estrella Roja clung to the match when the income was already past ten, but from the rebound Madrid started to run in the last quarter. There, the mattress was final, between Poirier and Rudy’s sharesThe only thing pending is a triple by Llull to round off the night of an unbeaten crowd.
