The Take

Strasbourg’s second home game of the season will see reigning champion Real Madrid come to town. Strasbourg won its home opener against Fenerbahce in convincing fashion, but three road losses have it tied for last in Group A. Madrid survived a tough test to beat FC Bayern Munich last week, but has lost both of its road games so far by double figures. Despite its struggles, Madrid’s high-powered attack is fourth in the league in scoring (83.8 ppg.), fifth in assists (20.3 apg.) and first in rebounds (41 rpg.), with guards Sergio Llull, Jaycee Carroll and Rudy Fernandez and Round 4 MVP Felipe Reyes all averaging double digits in scoring. Strasbourg ranks third from last in scoring (68.3 ppg.) and has drawn the fewest fouls in the league (67). Guard Roddy Beaubois, forward Kyle Weems and center Vladimir Golubovic have been Strasbourg’s best offensive weapons so far. The backcourt duo of Mardy Collins and Jeremy Leloup has not shot well from downtown thus far for Strasbourg, but if they heat up and join Louis Campbell and Beaubois at a higher success rate, Strasbourg will increase its chances. Madrid has great depth with an 11-man rotation, which could wear on Strasbourg by the end of what promises to be an exciting duel.

Quotes Head Coaches

"Real Madrid is good in all areas of the game. It's a team that plays very quickly and is very smart. Playing against one of the best teams in Europe is very exciting. The players are very motivated. We know that this game will be very tough. We won't just sit down and watch them play, but we will give everything on the court. Being good will not be enough, it will be important to be present from the start to the finish and over 100 percent."
Real Madrid
"We had a good week worth of work and after two tough appointments at home, we hit the road again to play against a team that played great against Fenerbahce at home. Strasbourg has strong, athletic players on all spots and in France the fans push hard from the stands. They have a great frontcourt with Golubovic and Fofana, and open players like Weems, Travis or Campbell. In general, they are a solid team that will require us to play good basketball if we want to win. The most important thing for us now is gettingo ur touch back and feel better every day because, from there, wins will arrive. Getting some road wins would put us clsoer to the Top 16. The team is fine, but Thompkins has some knee issues. He practiced on Tuesday, but he didn't yesterday. Let's see how he evolves, but everyone will travel."


"We are motivated for this game, but also by the fact of playing twice at home. Our last two games were not good. The long trip we had to do to go to Khimki must not be an excuse. So we are motivated not only by the fact of playing against the best team in Europe at home, but also to play better than we have done in recent games. If we play together as a team, we can do great things as the victory against Fenerbahce."
Real Madrid
"We have a very important game in a difficult gym against a dynamic team, something different than what we are used to in the Euroleague. French teams have fast play, with mobile players that run a lot. Fenerbahce collected a loss there and we must be ready because it will be a hard game that could leave us in a good place in the group. The win would be good for us to keep working with tranquility. The team is practising well but that has not yet been reflected on the court. It's normal because many of the players had a busy summer with national teams, and you can tell the difference between those who played during the summer and those who didn't."

Strasbourg stuns the champs!

Strasbourg made a statement win by upsetting reigning champion Real Madrid 93-86 at home on Friday night. It is second win in as many home games for Strasbourg, while Madrid is still searching for a road win. The result gives both teams 2-3 records and part of a four-team share of the third place in Group A. Strasbourg jumped to a big early lead, but Madrid rallied with a 0-16 first-quarter run. But the hosts continued with a great offensive display in the second, and took a 51-44 halftime lead. The 51 points Strasbourg scored in the first half is the most points for the club in the Euroleague in a half, surpassing its previous record of 50. After a fine first half, Strasbourg never trailed in the second. A 13-0 run early in the third quarter opened up 64-46 lead, and the margin reached 83-63 early in the fourth. Madrid rallied after that, but Strasbourg avoided any drama for a win in which Louis Campbell paced the team with 23 points on 4-of-5 three-point shooting. Roderigue Beubois scored 16 with 6 assists, Mardy Collins had 14, while Kyle Weems netted 12 for Strasbourg. On the visiting side, Jeffrey Taylor scored 21 points, Sergio Llull had 20 points and 6 assists, while Rudy Fernandez had 17 points in defeat.

First quarter: The hosts start quick, Madrid answers with 0-16 run

Kyle Weems hit a triple on the opening possession. Bangaly Fofana added a put-back for the hosts, and Beubois drove for a dunk in the lane and a quick 7-0 lead. Jaycee Carroll answered with a three-pointer to open Madrid's account, but Beaubois answered with one of his own from downtown, and Vladimir Golubovic made a hook shot to give the hosts a 12-4 lead. Fernandez drove to the hoop for the visitors, but Beaubois had a three-point play that extended the margin to 15-6 after 3 minutes of play. There was more to come from Strasbourg, as Collins raced for a fastbreak layup. After free throws by Llull, a triple from Weems and a short baseline shot from Golubovic extended the difference to 22-9. Taylor scored inside for the visitors, snapping a 10-1 run, then Llull nailed a long jumper. Now, Madrid was on a run. After free throws from Fernandez, Lull added a triple, and Fernandez raced on a fastbreak dunk, cutting it to 22-20. After a Strasbourg timeout, Fernandez added a triple, then finished another fast break with a dunk for 22-25. It took Madrid only three minutes to make a 0-16 run, which Beaubois snapped with a layup to make it 24-25 after 10 minutes.

Second quarter: Strasbourg takes halftime lead behind Campbell’s triples

Nocioni had a put-back and Beaubois answered with a long jumper to start the quarter. Romeo Travis hit a jumper, 28-27, before Sergio Rodriguez made a fadeaway shot. Travis scored inside, but Taylor’s big dunk put Madrid back on top, 30-31. However, Strasbourg had all the answers. Travis scored again inside, and after Rodriguez fed Willy with a behind-the-back pass for a three-point play, Campbell nailed a corner triple, 35-34. Collins had a fastbreak basket to extend Strasbourg's margin, and Campbell hit his second triple, making it 40-35. After another big dunk from Taylor, Campbell nailed his third shot from downtown. Taylor drove to make a tough runner, but Romain Duport nailed a jumper, before a tip-in from Golubovic and a jumper from Paul Lacombe jumper opened 49-41 margin. After a Madrid timeout, Llull nailed a triple, but Collins made another basket from close range that gave the hosts 51-44 halftime lead.

Third quarter: The hosts pull away

Free throws by Llull opened the second half, but it was all Strasbourg after that. Collins and Leloup found ways to score inside, before Weems nailed a triple, 58-46. The run continued with a Leloup facilitating a fastbreak that Beaubois finished, then Leloup dished a pass to Campbell for an easy layup that made it 62-46. After a timeout, a jumper from Beaubois made it an 18-point affair, before Reyes free throws snapped a 13-0 run. Reyes added a put-back, but a driving layup from Campbell helped the hosts open 71-52 margin. Fernandez made free throws and drove to the hoop for a basket, but Campbell nailed a long two. Taylor scored on a fastbreak to cut it to 73-58, and after Leloup made a cut in the lane for a layup, Rodriguez first banked in a runner then hit a runner on a fast break that got Madrid within 76-63. However, Beaubois made a runner to finish the quarter, giving Strasbourg 78-63 advantage.

Fourth quarter: Madrid rallies, but Strasbourg easily holds on

Duport made an easy layup to open the quarter, followed by a triple from Campbell that broke the 20-point barrier, 83-63. Rudy free throws were the only baskets in the next three minutes, as the scoring slowed down. Campbell’s basket restored an 18-point lead. After a Pablo Laso timeout, Taylor nailed a triple, but Weems scored an easy basket on the other end. Llull banked in a runner, and Taylor made a tough baseline jumper. Reyes drew an unsportsmanlike foul, and Taylor made a back-door cut for reverse dunk that made it 87-78 with 2:05 to go. After a timeout, however, Collins made a reverse layup that extended the margin back to 11 points. Reyes scored foul shots, and Llull hit a triple to get Madrid within 89-83 with 48 second left. But Campbell fed Collins for an easy layup on the ensuing possession, sealing the deal.

Head Coaches

"The key moment of the game is, in my point of view, the third quarter. Madrid came back strong after halftime and yet even at that time we responded. All of my players have made an impact on the game. It was necessary for everyone to be good tonight to be able to compete. This is exactly what happened. This victory is a pleasure. The win leaves us alive in this pool. The game against Belgrade will be very important."
Real Madrid
"It's not a surprise to play against a team of Strasbourg at this level. We had seen their game against Fenerbahce here. We were warned, but Strasbourg dominated us. And I had warned my players ... Maybe we would not be sufficiently prepared. When trying to come back, it was too late. Congratulations to Strasbourg for this victory."


"This victory is a team victory! We've had exceptional energy and determination. The energy the guys had was phenomenal. It was a big opportunity tonight and we did not want to pass it up. We decided to play hard and prepared for a real battle. We responded ... Each player has responded. I am proud of the team."
