Anadolu Efes outscored Gran Canaria 50-28 in the second half and cruised to an easy victory at home to remain fourth in the standings (93-74).

The Turks made a better start to the game (26-19), yet the Spaniards took control in the second quarter and closed the first half in front by three (43-46), behind a 17-27 run.

Since then, though, the hosts were unstoppable and never looked back. Playing excellent on both ends of the floor, they took a double-digit lead (75-60, 87-72) to seal the win, as Gran Canaria never came closer than eight points.

Krunoslav Simon led the winners with a career-high 25 points, with Shane Larkin adding 18.

Clevin Hannah scored 16 points for the losing squad, with Marcus Eriksson posting 13 and D.J. Strawberry 10.

Anadolu Efes improved to 14-8, whereas Gran Canaria dropped to 6-16.
