FC Barcelona - Spanish League championFC Barcelona Regal is once again the Spanish League champion! Barcelona successfully defended the title and lifted the Spanish League trophy for the 17th time in club history by downing Real Madrid 73-69 in do-or-die Game 5 of the best-of-five final series at Palau Blaugrana on Saturday. Pete Mickeal led the winners with 17 points. Fran Vazquez added 16 while Erazem Lorbek got 10 and was chosen as the Finals MVP. Jaycee Carroll led Madrid with 16 points. Kyle Singler and Sergio Llull each added 12 while Nikola Mirotic had 10 for the guests. Mirotic stepped up early with a tip-in and a dunk. Lorbek and Mickeal allowed Barcelona to tie it at 6-6. Free throws by Felipe Reyes put Madrid back ahead, 9-10, but C.J. Wallace struck from downtown, Chuck Eidson sank a jumper and a close basket by Vazquez gave Barcelona a 16-12 lead after 10 minutes. Reyes tied the game with a layup, 16-16, but three-pointers by Ingles and Victor Sada sparked an 8-0 run that forced Madrid to call timeout at 24-16. Mirotic and Sergio Rodriguez stepped up in an 2-14 run that Singler and Carroll capped with back-to-back triples to restore a 26-30 Madrid edge. Juan Carlos Navarro downed a three-pointer and Vazquez had 8 points, including consecutive dunks, late in the first half to give Barcelona a 39-34 edge at the break. Vazquez kept pacing Barcelona after the break and a jumper by Mickeal made it a nine-point game, 43-34. Madrid managed to get within 46-45 on a three-pointer by Singler but Mickeal led an 8-0 run that gave Barcelona some fresh air, 54-45, enough for the hosts to keep a 56-47 margin after 30 minutes. Llull and Mirotic brought Madrid within 56-53 early in the third quarter. Barcelona found a go-to guy in Lorbek, who had two critical baskets to give his team a 62-56 edge with 3 minutes to go. Mirotic and Carroll made it a two-point game, 64-62, with a minute left. Mickeal scored in penetration with 48 seconds left, Singler missed at the other end and Lorbek seemed to seal the outcome, 68-62. Three-pointers by Carroll and Singler gave Madrid a slim chance, 70-68. Rodriguez drew a foul and missed the second attempt on purpose but Barcelona got the ball back and free throws by Wallace allowed all Barcelona fans at Palau Blaugrana to start celebrating a historical win.
