Real Madrid is no longer undefeated in the Emanuele Molin Era. Madrid fell to Unicaja Malaga, 69-68, in overtime on the road this Saturday, March the 19th, and now stands at 20-6 but remains at second place in the ACB standings.
Utah Jazz’s Ante Tomic started and logged 29:30 of playing time. Tomic scored 18 points on 6-of-9 shooting from the field and 6-of-8 from the foul line, grabbed six boards, blocked a shot and drew eight personal fouls.
Tomic played really, really well. He shut down Joel Freeland, who needed 12 shots to score his 11 points. On offense, he was unstoppable on the post, displaying his skilled back to the basket game.
The loss snapped Real Madrid’s three-game winning streak after Ettore Messina’s departure. They tip-off the EuroLeague’s quarterfinals against compatriot Power Electronics Valência at home next Tuesday, March the 22nd.
