Real Madrid makes Euroleague history with epic 4-overtime victory against Anadolu Efes

Posted : 06 January 2024

In a historic Euroleague showdown, Real Madrid secured a remarkable 126-130 victory over Anadolu Efes after an unprecedented four overtimes, marking an extraordinary spectacle in basketball history. The match set a new combined Euroleague scoring record with 256 points, surpassing the previous mark of 232. The contest also shattered the previous record for the most points in a single Euroleague game, held by Maccabi Tel Aviv and Panathinaikos at 123 points.


Dejan Moussa stole the spotlight with a career-high 40 points, becoming the first Real Madrid player to achieve this milestone in the modern Euroleague era (since 2000). His exceptional performance included setting club records with 15 successful field goals and 13 2-point shots.


Mario Zugna contributed significantly, throwing 17 three-pointers and 24 field goals, establishing a new all-time record for Real Madrid. The game also witnessed a rare feat as three players from the same team—Moussa (40), Zugna (31), and Facundo Campasso (25)—each scored 25 or more points in a single game.


The contest featured several notable achievements, such as Shane Larkin and Tibor Place playing over 50 minutes each, a first in franchise history. Reflecting on the historic game, Mario Zugna expressed his awe, stating, "Basketball is the most beautiful sport in the world. It was amazing to be part of history, and I'm so glad we won."


Real Madrid's head coach, Chos Mateo, acknowledged the exceptional nature of the match, praising both teams for their relentless efforts, while Anadolu Efes' coach, Erdem Chan, expressed pride in his players despite falling short, emphasizing the impact of small details in deciding the game's outcome.
