With 1:45 left in the match, Rudy Fernández scored his fourth three-pointer without missing, securing Real Madrid's second victory in the Endesa League final against UCAM Murcia.

Eleven seconds later, Chus Mateo substituted him, and what followed at the WiZink Center was magical. The entire arena stood up to honor Rudy in an impromptu tribute to a legend of both the club and world basketball. The ovation continued for the remainder of the match and for 15 minutes afterward. During this time, Rudy kissed the club's crest, received a commemorative plaque, shared an emotional hug with his children, and was interviewed by Movistar.

In the background, fans chanted Rudy Fernández's name continuously until the legend finally headed to the locker room.
