Fenerbahce Beko beat Tofas Bursa 82 – 72 to improve its Turkish BSL League record to 12-1 and remain in the top spot in the standings. It was the eighth consecutive victory for Fener in the domestic field.

The trio of Jan Vesely (15 points, 10 rebounds, five assists), Pierria Henry (14 points, six assists) and Dyshawn Pierre (10 points) scored in double figures for Fener that was minus Nando De Colo (rest). Their team led by double figures for the most part of the game, pushing back every effort Tofas made to get at a shooting distance and actually become threatening.

When Tofas made it 68 – 61 three minutes into the fourth period, Fener responded with a 12 – 2 run to practically seal the outcome.

Pako Cruz scored 16 for Tofas while Berk Ugurlu posted 12 points plus six assists and Elgin Cook scored 12. With this result, the Bursa side dropped to 7-6 and is now tied with Besiktas at the seventh place.

Thanks to Vasilije Micic, Efes overcame Bursaspor on the road to stay in pursuit of Fener with one win less.
