Real Madrid showcased their dominance in the opening game of their playoffs series against Baskonia, securing a commanding 90-74 victory at WiZink Center on Tuesday, taking an early lead in the series.

Led by Dzanan Musa’s 16 points and Vincent Poirier’s dominant performance inside with 10 points and 7 rebounds, Real Madrid wasted no time in asserting their authority, establishing a double-digit lead early on and never looking back.

Facu Campazzo also contributed 10 points, while Sergio Llull made history by becoming the competition’s all-time leader in three-pointers made with 624.

Despite a strong effort from Baskonia, led by Markus Howard’s 15 points, Real Madrid’s balanced scoring attack and stifling defense proved too much to handle, setting the stage for an intriguing Game 2 matchup.

With the series shifting back to WiZink Center for Game 2 on Thursday, Baskonia will look to regroup and make adjustments in a bid to even the series, while Real Madrid aims to maintain their momentum and extend their lead.
