Elijah Bryant scored 28 points and grabbed seven rebounds in one of his top performances with Anadolu Efes‘ jersey to lead his team to a 73 – 62 away win over Bahcesehir in the Turkish League.

Apart from Bryant, Vasilije Micic and Shane Larkin dropped 12 points apiece. Conor Morgan (11 points) and Langston Hall (10 points) scored in double figures for Bahcesehir.

This was the sixth straight victory for Efes in BSL and a strong kind of “warmup” prior to an important set of home games for EuroLeague. The reigning back-to-back champions, currently 10th in the standings, face Real Madrid Tuesday (14/3) in a postponed match and then play against Partizan Belgrade two days later.

Efes had asked the Turkish Federation to postpones this game vs. Bahcesehir but their request was declined. Now, the team is essentially playing two straight double-game weeks in EuroLeague and giving six matches over 12 days.
