Vasilije Micic added 18 while Krunoslav Simon had 13 for Efes. Erick Green led Bahcesehir with 24 points. Jamal Jones added 14, Ismet Akpinar 13 and Josh Owens 10. Bahcesehir led 21-23 after 10 minutes but Efes bounced back to get a 43-41 edge at halftime, extending it to 58-52 after 30 minutes. Green allowed Bahcesehir to regain the lead, 62-64, but Efes recovered in time to win the game.

FC Barcelona reached the Catalonian League championship game by topping BAXI Manresa 92-82 at Palau Blaugrana. Pierre Oriola paced the winners with 17 points. Thomas Heurtel had 14, Nikola Mirotic added 13 while Alex Abrines got 10 for Barcelona, which trailed 23-25 after 10 minutes. Barcelona took the lead, 44-41, at halftime, and made it a double-digit game, 62-50, midway through the third quarter.
