"Clean the mind", Pablo Laso had warned in the previous before the return to reality after the elimination in the Euroleague against Efes.

Since that league final in 2017, 12 consecutive defeats in national competitions
Damn broken this Sunday, among other things for Mike Tobey's terrific display in the first half.

At halftime, those of Jaume Ponsarnau commanded solidly: 27-33.
There was no reaction to return.
At least not enough to disturb the taronjas, who add six career victories and stalk the fourth place of Baskonia.
Even Hermannsson was hitting it from midfield.
Despite Llull's five triples, Madrid stayed at 69 points and that says almost everything: it is their lowest score this season in ACB.
"We had a lot of whiplash,"
Laso confessed later.
