Real Madrid was almost defeated at home by Murcia, but Trey Thompkins was there to save the day.

The final score was 87-85 as Thompkins made the biggest shot of the overtime with two seconds left and then with a block secured the win of the “Whites”.

Still, the most important play of the two was by far this amazing shot.

With Facundo Campazzo hurt almost at the start of the game the limited due to injury roster of Madrid which almost got no rest after the overtime defeat on Friday night at Piraeus against Olympiacos, survived a close call after forcing overtime thanks to this amazing shot also by Trey Thompkins who finished the contest with 13 points.

Murcia managed to get the 85-84 lead after a three by Sadiel Rojas with 13 seconds left for the final buzzer. However, Thompkins had the answer while the duo of Luka Doncic (16 p. 7 r.) and Jaycee Carroll (17 p.) also kept Madrid alive. Charlon Kloof with 19 points was the best player on the losing side. Madrid with a 10-1 record remains on top of the Liga Endesa standings.
