Real Madrid overcame the injuries and a double-digit deficit and stunned Armani Milano on the road (73-78).

The “Whites”, who entered the game without five players, came back twice from a double-digit deficit (25-11, 45-35) and sealed the deal, as Vladimir Micov missed from beyond the arc with a chance to tie the game and force an overtime.

Rudy Fernandez led the winners with 16 points, while Riccardo Moraschini paced Milano with a career-high 21 points.

Real Madrid, which has already qualified for the postseason, improved to 21-6. On the other hand, Armani dropped to 11-16 and its playoff hopes now are in jeopardy.
