With the 32nd Liga victory the team crown a perfect season

The Whites sealed a trophy quadruple to go down in history.

Real Madrid capped an historic season by winning their 32nd ACB League title. The Whites beat Barcelona 3-0 in the playoff finals to confirm their domination of domestic and European basketball, having lifted every official trophy available to them during the course of the 2014-15 campaign.

After finishing the League's regular season in top spot with 27 wins, Real Madrid knocked out Herbalife Gran Canaria in the quarter-finals of the playoffs (2-0), and then saw off Valencia Basket in the last four (3-1). In the finals against Barcelona, the same team that they had defeated to clinch the Super Cup and the Copa del Rey, Madrid again performed immaculately. Pablo Laso's men convincingly won games one and two at the Palacio (78-72 and 100-80), before taking full advantage of their first chance to secure the title at the Palau (85-90).

Madrid are the first side in Spanish basketball history to win all four trophies

With this latest trophy triumph, Real Madrid become the first club in the history of Spanish basketball to win the quadruple: Euroleague, League, Copa del Rey and Spanish Super Cup. In the 1964-65 and 1973-74 seasons, the Whites achieved the treble (European Cup, League and Copa) under coach Pedro Ferrándiz. The current Madrid team have surpassed those sides by claiming the Super Cup, a competition that did not exist at the time.

THE THREE-POINT DISPLAYS OF AN INCREDIBLE SERGIO LLULL SAW HIM NAMED MVP

Sergio Llull was chosen as finals MVP thanks to his average of 14.3 points, 3 assists and PIR of 17 in the three games played. The guard from Menorca shone in the series, pulling the strings and producing virtuoso displays of perimeter shooting, including 5 from 5 on three-pointers in the first quarter of game two.

As a team, Real Madrid performed fantastically throughout the playoffs, averaging 90.7 points per match. Their 100-point haul in their second clash with Barcelona was the highest tally ever reached in an ACB finals game.
