A Corovic three-point play made it 61-67 and then Rebic knocked down a corner three-ball as the lead grew to 62-70. Madrid knew it only needed to win to get into the final but the champs could not score as Simanic blocked Radoncic twice in one possession. But Zvezda ran out of time to get the necessary 13-point victory it needed to secure a definite spot in the final as Ballespin and Radoncic combined for 3 free throws in the final 34 seconds.
