Real Madrid Milan Form


Real Madrid kept their season alive by winning Game 3 on Tuesday night.

However, they are in poor form with eight defeats in their last 14 games and four loss in their last seven at home.

Sergio Lllull put up 20 points in Game 3 as he filled the void left by the absence of Walter Tavares.

Tavares leads the team with 11.5 points per game, while Trey Thompkins is averaging 10.2 after a quiet Game 3.

Anadolu Efes Istanbul Form


Anadolu Efes Istanbul are one win away from a place in the semi-finals.

They have won 17 of their last 22 games and hold a 2-1 lead in this best-of-five series.

Vasilije Micic racked up 29 points in a sizzling Game 3 display and he continues to lead the team in points per game (16.4). 

Shane Larkin (15.0 points per game) will be looking to bounce back from an underwhelming display in Madrid.
