Thanks to a 13-26 run in the fourth quarter, Fenerbahce cruised to an easy victory over Gran Canaria on the road (64-82).

The Turks had control of the game from the opening tip and led by 12 at halftime (32-44). The Spaniards reacted, though, and went on a 19-12 run to cut the deficit to five, after 30 minutes in the game (51-56).

Yet, the visitors improved their overall performance and brought their lead back to double digits (56-71) to seal the deal.

Nikola Kalinic led the winners with 16 points, while Jan Vesely had 13 points and seven rebounds. Kostas Sloukas posted 11 points, six assists and three steals and Ali Muhammed 10 points.

Kim Tillie contributed a career-high 21 points for the losing squad, with DJ Strawberry adding 11.

Fenerbahce improved to 16-2, whereas Gran Canaria, which lost for the fourth straight time and sixth in the last seven matches, dropped to 6-13.
