From the first minute to the end against Valencia, Fenerbahce was dominant in front of the yellow-and-blue fanbase, breaking a new EuroLeague record for three-pointers made (24/38) and winning 118-88.

The backcourt duo composed of Scottie Wilbekin and Tyler Dorsey was amazing, showing glimpses of their run together at Maccabi Tel Aviv.

The former shot 6/10 from beyond the arc for 20 points, and the latter was the Turkish team’s highest scorer with 28 points with 8/9 on three-pointers.

“We kept our foot on the pedal. My teammates were finding me in great spots, we need to continue protecting the home-court advantage during these games. We have a lot of shooters on our team”, the former Olympiacos shooting guard commented.

Nigel Hayes-Davis was also on fire, scoring 21 points with 3 rebounds and 4/7 from three-point range and he was not the only one making a three.

A new record

Fenerbahce broke its EuroLeague All-Time scoring record for the third time this season (!) by putting up 118 points.

“Offensively, we were very good. We were sharing the ball very well, we found very solutions when finding our second or third options”, Sarunas Jasikevicius commented after the win. “Unbelievable, everything is so easier when you’re hitting shots”, he added about the new All-Time record.

On the losing side, Brandon Davies had one of his best performances since joining Valencia, ending with a losing effort of 18 points and 5 rebounds. Jared Harper and Justin Anderson added 12 points each in the defeat. “We needed to control their three-point shots, we didn’t compete”, Alex Mumbru commented.

In next week’s double-game action – the last one of the season -, Fenerbahce will start it by hosting Barcelona (20/03 at 18:45 CET) and then visiting Milano (22/03 at 20:30 CET), while Valencia will play at home against Bayern Munich (20/03 at 20:30 CET) and then travel to Monaco (22/03 at 19:00 CET).
