Real Madrid came out of trouble in Belgrade with a win over Estrella Roja (67-73) and that may have been the only good news for the Whites.
The third straight win in the Euroleague brings them closer to the playoff spots, but to save it they needed Campazzo to play the entire second half without a break.
A week after the NBA opens the market and can get its hands on the Argentine, the lows without him on the court worry for the too near future.

As always, the reaction came in the third period and as almost always, from the defense, where in addition to recovering Tavares and having Campazzo as the spearhead,

shone after the break
It was that improvement, together with the scoring of Thompkins (14) and
(13) that allowed Real Madrid to leave Belgrade with a victory and, for the first time in the Euroleague, treading on playoff positions.
