Rodrigue Beaubois had 27 points, Vasilje Micic added 23 and also seven rebounds and seven assists, as Anadolu Efes got the 95-73 win and the 2-0 lead in the Turkish BSL finals. The EuroLeague champions need one more win in order to secure the Turkish League title.

It was a hard fought game with Fenerbahce trailing just by two (73-71) with five minutes left on the clock. However, the answer of Efes was a 7-0 run that ended with Fenerbahce‘s Melih Mahmutoglou having an altercation with Chris Singleton. Both of the were ejected, plus Alex Perez, Ahmet Duverioglu, Yigit Onan, assistant coach Radovan Trifunovic, plus team manager Cenk Renda and one trainer because they left Fenerbahce’s bench and entered the court.

Fenerbahce had already lost due to five fouls – one of them a “T” – Jan Vesely at the start of the last period.

Singleton added 15 points for Efes before his ejection, Shane Larkin scored 11 and Nando De Colo with just 14 points was the top scorer of the losing side. The two teams will meet again on Monday at Fenerbache’s home court for Game 3 that might end up being the last of the series.
