Rudy gives Real Madrid air and puts it in the playoffs (70-58)

The triples of Rudy Fernandez at the end of the third quarter and at the beginning of the last period they have given air to a Real Madrid thick in attack but ended up beating the Asvel Villeurbanne by 70-58 for mathematically qualify for the playoffs of the Euroleague basketball.

Real Madrid dominated from the first minute on the scoreboard, but could not break the match against Asvel Villeurbanne, who suffered their eighth consecutive loss and is an atypical team that plays with a 2.20 meter forward as Victor Wembhamyama. The physical exuberance of Kostas Antetokoumpo and the killer Elie Okobo are another of the mainstays of TJ Parker’s team, but everything was confused in the good defense of Real Madrid, which continues to have problems with its outside shot, although it tries to remedy it behind. The Walter Tavares’ domain and Gaby Deck’s scoring it served Real Madrid to close the first act with an advantage: 20-14.

in the second room the forces became more equal. 16-16 in the second ten minutes. With Rudy Fernández and Thomas Heurtel among the highlights on the Madrid side, while Okobo, with 6 points, did not particularly stand out. Real Madrid was on the brink of reaching double-digit leads on several occasions, but the French team made the rubber and managed to make it to the break alive at 36-30, although with Antetokounmpo and Youssoupha Fall threatened with three personal fouls.

Without too many ideas in attack and with the outside shot unaccounted for, Real Madrid saw how Villeurbanne came back on the scoreboard after the restart (39-36, m.23.30), but without taking the final step. Until a triple by David Lighty gave the French team the first advantage (41-42, m.26).

Sergio Lull He was the first, with a three-pointer, to react in a match enveloped in a haze of offensive play that did not convey anything to the fans. At the end of the third act, 51-47 and everything to be decided. Rudywho had already made a triple at the end of the third quarter, scored another at the start of the final act, 54-47 (m.31), and one more (57-49) giving air to a Real Madrid that gave the sensation of little verve in his offensive actions.

Guerschon Yabusele and Vincent Poirier added to reach a 12-point lead, 61-49 (m.23.40), with Villeurbanne equally thick on offense. Rudy’s triples woke up Madrid, lulled Villeurbanne to sleep and the advantages grew, 68-52 (m. 36.30), to have a quiet ending. Real Madrid ended up winning by 70-58.
