Real Madrid remained one of two unbeaten teams in Group C, of just three in the whole Euroleague, after downing visiting Ulker 70-58 in Group C on Thursday. Real Madrid continues sharing the top spot in Group C with Panathinaikos, both with a perfect 4-0 records, two wins ahead everyone else in this group. Meanwhile, Ulker dropped to 1-3 and ties for the sixth place in the standings. Marko Tomas led the winners with 18 points on 4 of 5 three-pointers. Louis Bullock added 15 points and 5 assists, Mickael Gelabale had 14 points and 8 rebounds while Axel Hervelle scored 10 points for Real Madrid. Mirsad Turkcan and Marcus Haislip scored 10 points apiece for Ulker. Jeff Trepganier led Ulker on a 2-10 opening run, but the guests only managed to keep a 20-21 edge after 10 minutes on a buzzer-beating jumper by Haislip. Bullock and Gelabale shined in the second quarter to put Real Madrid in charge, 39-35, at halftime. Tomas took over in the third quarter, nailing 3 triples in a 20-5 run which sealed the outcome as Madrid's excellent zone defense maintained full control of the game.

Cuneyt Erden opened fire with a quick three from the top for the key for Ulker, but Bullock immediately answered with a long two-jumper. Trepagnier gave Ulker the momentum with a five-meter jumper and a big three, to which he added a basket off a steal for a 2-10 lead. Hervelle came to the rescue for Madrid and Gelabale added a dunk, as the hosts improved its defense. Reyes brought Madrid even closer with a put-back basket, but Onan came to the rescue with a three-point play. Hervelle hit from downtown for Madrid, but Haislip followed a big basket-plus-foul with a two-handed slam to give Ulker a 13-19 lead. It didn't last long, as Madrid found a go-to guy in Gelabale, who scored 5 points in a 7-0 run which gave Real Madrid a 7-0 run before Haislip scored at the buzzer for a 20-21 Ulker edge after 10 minutes.

Both teams struggled to score early in the second, as only Vrbica Stefanov added a driving layup in the opening 2 minutes of the second. Real Madrid controlled the defensive board, while Bullock hit one from downtown to tie the game at 23-23. A very active Stefanov matched that in the other end, but Bullock - who else? - nailed another three which he followed with a fast break layup for a 29-26 Madrid edge. Haislip stepped up with a put-back basket but Tomas answered from three-point range to keep Madrid in charge. Turkcan nailed a five-meter jumper before Haislip picked up his third foul, leaving Ulker without its main offensive weapon. Venson Hamilton stepped up with a jumper to give Madrid ahead, 34-30, after 17 minutes. Turkcan took over with a big triple, but Tomas run the break for a layup while Gelabale followed a big block on Oguz Savas. Stefanov made a floating layup but a red hot Gelabale sank a triple for a 39-35 Madrid lead at halftime.

Ibrahim Kutluay nailed his trademark five-meter jumper right after the break, but Real Madrid carried on dominating the boards early in the third quarter. Bullock added another basket, but Kutluay fired in a triple to make it a one-point game, 41-40. It didn't last long, as Venson Hamilton's four-meter jumper ignited a 6-0 run which Tomas capped with a corner three for a 47-40 Real Madrid margin. Stefanov appeared again with a fast break layup, but Gelabale followed an outstanding dunk with a big block which allowed Hervelle to score in the paint. Ulker struggled against the hosts' strong zone defense, while a third-chance basket by Reyes boosted his team's margin to double digits, 53-42, after 27 minutes. Erden fired in his second triple but Tomas copied him in the other end and added another one from the top of the key, good for a 59-45 Madrid lead. Hamilton capped a mamooth 20-5 run for a 16-point Real Madrid margin after 30 minutes.

Ulker needed a quick comeback to get back into the game, but Real Madrid kept the momentum due to its outstanding defense. Ulker could only add a jump hook by Drago Pasalic in the opening 2 minutes of the fourth quarter. Real Madrid used twin playmakers with Mous Sonko and Oscar Gonzalez, who nailed a five-meter jumper for a 63-47 margin. The guetss could not find the way to the basket and despite several turnovers, Tomas scored in the paint to make it a 18-point game, 65-47, with 5 minutes to go. The fight now was for the points differential, as the outcome was clear. Tomas provided one of the highlights of the night with a tough left-handed layup, but nothing changed in the remaining minutes, as all fans in Madrid could celebrate Real's win long before the final buzzer.

"Tonight we only played basketball in the first quarter. After that, we went out of the game. We had a very poor field goal percentage and our rebounding performance was way under Real Madrid’s. The other team put a lot more effort on the boards, and they fought harder than we did which allowed them to drown our offensive chances, specially after halftime. This way, we were not able to impose our chances to win."
