Returning to Spain’s Liga Endesa, Real Madrid restored a double-digit lead after the break and built up a 23-point advantage at MoraBanc Andorra.

Punching in a win, 89-70, retained the top spot of the domestic league on Sunday. A solid showing countering the home loss to Panathinaikos Aktor in Round 27 of the Turkish Airlines EuroLeague Regular Season on Thursday.

Guerschon Yabusele delivered a team-high 18 points. Walter Tavares posted a 14-point, 12-rebound double-double, Facundo Campazzo threw in 14 points, eight assists, and four rebounds, and Gabriel Deck had 14 points for the reigning EuroLeague champions and most recently Copa del Rey winners in Malaga. Leading scorer Dzanan Musa sat out Round 23 of the ACB Regular Season along with Rudy Fernandez.

For the losing side, Jerrick Harding produced a game-high 19 points. Jean Montero paired 14 points with ten assists. The team guided by Natxo Lezkano sits two games safe from the relegation zone.

After three Spanish EuroLeague sides emerged victorious, the fourth fell as Baskonia couldn’t find a way against Gran Canaria on the road, losing 98-80.
