Power Electronics Valência tipped-off the EuroLeague’s quarterfinals with a loss, 71-65, on the road this Tuesday, March the 22nd, to Real Madrid, falling behind to a 0-1 series deficit.
San Antonio Spurs’ Nando DeColo came off the bench and logged 21:47 of playing time. DeColo scored 15 points on 5-of-9 shooting from the field and 4-of-4 from the foul line, grabbed three boards and turned the ball over twice.
It was a close tilt throughout. Real Madrid was down one after three quarters and needed to outscore Valência 19-12 in the final period to secure the win. 20 year-old Nikola Mirótic hit a huge three-pointer and some clutch free-throws that gave Real the edge to pull this one out.
