Real Madrid dropped the first two games against Caja Laboral, leaving them against the ropes and in need of sweeping the next three games if they want to make the finals. On the other bracket, it was business as usual as Barcelona seized a 2-0 lead against Unicaja. Below are quick summaries on the performances of the [...]
