Efes, that missed Shane Larkin and Tibor Pleiss, put on some reaction on the floor following back-to-back EuroLeague losses and extended its unscathed record to 11-0 in Turkey. In the meantime, Tofas dropped to 5-7.

Tofas started the game in control by taking a 14-point advantage by the end of the first quarter and leading 27 – 16 early in the second period. Efes‘ response was quite strong as Ergin Ataman’s players rallied to go up 37 – 53 at halftime, stayed in charge and even took a 25-point difference in the fourth period.

Coming off four straight losses in all competitions, Fenerbahce Beko made short work out of Frutti Extra Bursaspor landing a 90-54 win and improving to 11-2 at the domestic level.

Ahmet Duverioglu registered 23 points. Nando De Colo finished with 14 points and also dished out seven assists.

The visitors missing four players testing positive for coronavirus suited up ten players, including newcomer Lamar Peters. The former Mississippi State standout posted 11 points. Kenny Kadji went for a team-high 23 points.
