Sergio Llull and Real Madrid rallied past Khimki at home (94-85) and earned their first win in the 2020/21 EuroLeague.

Llull had 21 points (7/9 shooting) for the winners, while Nicolas Laprovittola added 19 (on 5/7 from beyond the arc).

Devin Booker led Khimki in scoring with 22 points, while Vyacheslav Zaytsev posted 21 and nine assists.

A 45-32 run between the second and third quarter was enough for the “Whites” to take a double-digit lead (70-57) and never look back. The Russians never recovered after that and suffered their third straight loss (0-3).

On the other hand, Real Madrid improved to 1-2.

Khimki had only eight players available, due to several issues with injuries and the coronavirus.
