Fenerbahce was unstoppable for 40 minutes and decimated Real Madrid at home (100-78), being only one victory away from qualifying to the Final 4, whereas the Spaniards now are on the brink of elimination.
For the winners, Ekpe Udoh was tremendous, with 18 points (on 7 of 9 shooting), as four more players scored in double figures. On the other hand, Sergio Rodriguez had 15 points for the losing squad.
Fenerbahce took control of the game from the beginning and never looked back. Executing perfectly on both ends of the floor, they closed the first quarter in front by 13 (27-14).
Later, the hosts simply exploded and went on a 19-5 run to extend their lead to 27 points (46-19), ending the first half with a 25-point advantage (54-29).
In the second half, Real Madrid tried to respond and cut the deficit to 17 points, behind a 12-4 run of their own (58-41), however the Turks easily retained their double-digit lead, after 30 minutes in the game (76-48).
In the fourth quarter, the situation remained the same, as the visitors were playing very badly, both defensively and offensively (85-58, 95-67).
Consequently, Fenerbahce claimed an easy victory, which brings the team closer to the Final 4, whereas the Spaniards now need to prevail over their opponents three straight times in order to eliminate them.
