Real

Madrid

fell (68-47) on their visit to

Zalgiris Kaunas

on matchday 27 of the

Euroleague

, a performance of mourning after the defeat in the final of the Copa del Rey against Barça, which also meant

their third loss in a row in Europe

.

Pablo Laso's men suffered from the emotional stick against the eternal rival and, above all,

the casualties of Causeur, Heurtel, Rudy Fernández and Carlos Alocén

.

The Basque coach played the last six minutes with

Núñez

as point guard, already 20 points behind.

Madrid did not compete in Kaunas, a bottom team that was motivated.

"Are we still in depression?"

That was Laso's question to his team in the first time out (18-8), but the Whites' team did not improve much.

Madrid did not enter as the stage requested, a united stadium in Kaunas, in sports as always and especially due to the invasion of Russia and the situation in Ukraine.

Zalgiris, brand new champion of the Cup in their country, and Madrid, still with the sting of the final lost against Barça.

The Lithuanian team entered very involved in defense and Madrid missed the baskets of tranquility.

The game was easy for Zalgiris, with no connection behind Madrid and no outside success (1 of 15 in triples was the harsh reality at the end).

Poirier

and

Tavares

were among the few that Laso's team scratched, punished in the transition.

With a couple of steals accompanied by baskets, the Whites seemed to warm up at the start of the second quarter.

With

Llull

and

Thompkins

they came close to a couple of baskets, but the Lithuanian arreón once again showed doubts.

local domain

Lekavicius

and

Strelnieks

, but later

Cavanaugh

and

Lauvergne

gave a local dominance that could have been greater (38-29).

The lap after changing rooms went to Tavares and the direction of Llull, but the success of three remained elusive and Zalgiris did not sleep.

The locals did not open the door to the comeback and returned to the charge with good defenses and enough success to continue expanding their lead.

With the rest of Tavares at the beginning of the last quarter, a bad partial blew up Madrid's options (58-39).

Laso's men confirmed their slow surrender in a bad game.

There were six minutes left, enough time but not for this Madrid touched.

Lauvergne, Lekavicius and

Ulanovas

sentenced without losing that twenty and the locals kept their fifth victory, insufficient to stop being last.

Madrid can see Barça escape from the lead, but this day the azulgranas will not play due to the postponement of their match in Saint Petersburg due to the conflict.
