NEWS | 31/10/2014The Whites racked up 33 passes that led to baskets against Nizhny Novgorod.
The 33 assists were mainly down to three men: Sergio Rodríguez (9), Rudy Fernández (6) and Llull (5). The remainder came from Campazzo (4), Rivers (3), Ayón (2) as well as from Reyes, Carroll, Nocioni and Mejri (1). Madrid's highest tally before Thursday night was 27 assists. That was back in 2013 in a game against Efes.
But one man stood out above everyone during the Whites' victory: Jaycee Carroll. His 32 points make him Real Madrid's joint top scorer in a single Euroleague game, alongside Darius Lavrinovic, who reached that figure in 2009 against Khimki. Carroll is third in the list with the 31 points he scored against CSKA in 2013.
The American shooting guard's seven three-pointers saw him equal the highest number in the club's history since the Euroleague format changed in 2000, bringing him level with Herreros and Raül López, albeit with a better percentage rate. Carroll converted 7 of his 9 throws, while the two Spaniards scored 7 from 10 attempts. Herreros did so against Efes in 2002 and López preceded him by two years against Ovarense.
