Another Ballespin triple had the champs ahead 45-32. Maccabi tried to stay in it with Zoosman scoring off a steal to make it 45-36 and two Zoosman three-balls helped close the deficit to 49-43 after 30 minutes. Madrid scored the first 5 points of the fourth quarter to push the lead to 54-43. Zoosman temporarily got the deficit to 9 points but Madrid turned defensive plays into points for a 60-45 advantage with less than 4 minutes to play. Maccabi would not get closer than 13 points the rest of the game.
