Real Madrid saw FC Barcelona come back from a double-digit deficit, but stood tall and earned the victory in the sixth El Clasico of the season.

The “Whites” took the lead early in the game (15-20, 33-42, 61-74) and were in front by seven with one minute to go (74-81). The Catalans, though, fought back and went on an 11-3 run to come close to the win (85-84).

Nicolas Laprovittola made the three-point play in the final seconds of regulation and handed Real the big road win over FC Barcelona (85-87).

This was the first victory of Real Madrid over FC Barcelona after fourth straight losses. FC Barcelona are 4-2 over Real this season.
