Vasilije Micic scored 27 points and dished out six assists while Elijah Bryant had 25 points, nine rebounds and five dimes as Anadolu Efes defeated Fenerbahce Beko 87 – 78 in Game 4 of the Turkish BSL League semifinals to win the series 3-1.

Bryant hit a big floater to put Efes up 83 – 78 with 47 seconds to play after scoring also the basket off an offensive rebound for the 81 – 72. Scottie Wilbekin took a quick triple but the ball went in and out the rim. On the other end, Micic sealed the win for Efes with a pair of free throws.

Fenerbahce had made it a one-possession game after trailing 79 – 69 with 5:03 remaining. Team captain Melih Mahmutoglu, who hadn’t taken a shot until then, made three triples over less than two minutes to cut the deficit to 81 – 78 but that was the last the visiting side scored in the game.

Wilbekin finished with 18 points and Johnathan Motley had 16 points plus nine rebounds for Fener. Marko Guduric also dropped 16 points including a buzzer-beater from beyond half-court at halftime for the 45 – 41.
