”With its top player this season sidelined and its home court under threat, Real Madrid relied on their teenage sensation to squeeze out a 96-91 home win on Friday against feisty Zalgiris Kaunas. Luka Doncic, all of 17 years old, drilled back-to-back three-pointers and insurance free throws for 8 of Madrid’s last 10 points to lift his team’s record to 8-3. His late heroics gave Doncic a career-high 17 points. Gustavo Ayon followed with 13, Anthony Randolph 11, Jonas Maciulis and Othello Hunter 10 each, while Rudy Fernandez dished 7 assists. Zalgiris got 19 points from Kevin Pangos, 17 from Brock Motum, 13 from Paulius Jankunas, 12 from Edgaras Ulanovas and 11 from Arturas Milaknis in defeat. Madrid now has a 14-1 record this century against Zagliris, whose record this season dropped to 3-8.” More..
