Galatasaray was unstoppable and dominated Fenerbahce in the Turkish derby (83-64), handing their rivals their first loss in the league (4-1).

A 25-9 run in the fourth quarter was enough for the hosts to help them triumph over their rivals, who scored just five points in the first eight minutes of the fourth quarter.

Greg Whittington had a game-high 20 points (on 8/12 shooting) for the winners, while Tal Webster and Aaron Harrison added 17 and 14 points, respectively.

On the other hand, four players scored in double figures for the losing squad, with Nando De Colo posting a team-high 16 points.

Both teams now have identical records (4-1).
