Real Madrid and Joventut Badalona will face each other in the Liga Endesa semifinals, after the 89-81 road win of the EuroLeague Champions against Gran Canaria in Game 2.

Dzanan Musa was Real Madrid‘s top scorer with 22 points, followed by Sergio Llull who scored 14.

But, once again, it is necessary to highlight the key presence of Sergio Rodríguez who scored 13 points in the last six minutes. Edy Tavares had a double-double with 12 points and as many rebounds against his team.

AJ Slaughter was the top scorer of Gran Canaria with 17 points, while Olek Balcerowski had 12 goals. Aleksej Nikolic’s 8 points in the fourth quarter helped them stay close until the final minutes.

It was a close game with the guests leading by two (39-37) at halftime, which seemed to be over at the start of the fourth period when Real Madrid got a 16-point advantage (77-61, 33’).

However, Gran Canaria came back with an 18-2 run (79-79) and finally, Madrid sealed the deal by making the right plays in crunch time.
