Real Madrid wins in Kaunas and further enhances its legend by becoming European champion for the eleventh time in the history, the third in eight years (2015, 2018 and 2023).

They defeated Olympiacos, as they had done previously in 1995 in Zaragoza and in 2015 in Madrid, in an amazing final in which they completed another feat and outperformed themselves.

At the Zalgirio Arena, our team first came back from 12 points before the break and then, with seven down at minute 35, they got back up, true to his DNA, and turned a very uphill game around. They did it in style, with a magical basket from Llull with 3.1 seconds remaining, which took us to the title in a heroic season.

Sergio Rodriguez was outstanding, scoring 8 of his 15 points in the final 5 minutes (he also had 9 assists for 23 PIR) and, of course, MVP of the Final Four, Tavares, with another double-double (13 points and 10 rebounds).

great job
