Anadolu Efes, as a guest, beat Kirolbet Baskonia 102:77 in the 12th round of the EuroLeague and Shane Larkin again had an excellent night.
Another amazing game for Larkin and his Anadolu Efes for the 10th win and leading position after 12 rounds (10-2). The Turkish team is the only one with ten victories in the EuroLeague, leaving behind Barcelona and Real Madrid (both teams have 9 wins).

In the first half, Efes built the lead and during the second part the visitors were protecting it.
The leader and the best player was Larkin, who finished the match with 24 points and 8 assists (index rating of 37). Sertac Sanli added 18, both Vasilije Micić and Chris Singleton 13, Rodrigue Beaubois 12 and Alec Peters 10.
