Baskonia prevailed over Valencia with a 77-56 victory at home, in the final game of Day 7 in Liga Endesa.

Tornike Shengelia (14 p.) and Luca Vildoza (13 p.) led the winners to their sixth victory of the season in a game that started with a high pace (29-20 at 10′), though soon both teams toned things down.

Notably, Valencia attempted 35 shots from the three-point line, with only eight hitting score, four of which by Matt Thomas (16 p.).

No team was left intact in this round, as Barcelona fell to Fuenlabrada on the road, while Real Madrid suffered defeat from Andorra and Dylan Ennis’ hands.

Baskonia, Real and Barcelona all count a 6-1 record in the top three spots of the standings, followed by Unicaja (5-2) and Iberostar Tenerife (4-3).
