There was no rounder way for Real Madrid to seal their defeat against Khimki than with a turnover, number 23, in the last attack of the match (78-77).

It says everything about the image that the whites gave, perhaps the moment they are going through, that they suffered such a hemorrhage against the worst defense (by far) in the Euroleague.

A team that has only won 3 matches out of 26, and that for three and a half months only collected defeats (16 in a row) and serious financial problems.

And almost more than this setback, the calendar that looms should worry: Zenit, Barça and CSKA.

It would have been extremely difficult to explain a Real Madrid victory after an afternoon collecting merits to fall.

Starting with those

23 turnovers

(and the endless number of easy baskets they caused);

following the difficulty to stop




(44 points, 15 assists between them);

and ending with the damage of an old acquaintance,

Jordan Mickey


The American, back in Moscow after a year in white, cocked the white ring from middle distance, away from the influence of

Edy Tavares

, and finished as MVP of the match.

19 points, 6 rebounds, 4 steals.

24 valuation.
