Second Euroleague win, the first away from home for a Real Madrid who remain unbeaten at the start of this new season (eight games). The Whites have won the first of their three games in five days (two in Euroleague and one in the League) and did so with a fine comeback against Olimpia Milán away from home. They were able to turn around a 15-point advantage from the first quarter with a 36-54 run in the following two, to take the win with an outstanding final two minutes. Randolph (25 points 11 rebounds and PIR of 33) was superb alongside Campazzo, who reached his best points (21) and PIR tally (32), as well as providing 7 assists.

Olimpia Milán started the game brightly, showing off all their offensive potential. A 14-1 run in their favour midway through the first quarter, with Micov and James in control (11 and 8 points respectively), put them in a comfortable position at the end of the first period with a +15 advantage (28-13). Real Madrid were matching their opposition only on the rebound. It was time to dig in.

Randolph steps up
With the madridistas struggling to find their feet, the center came to the fore. He netted 13 points, well directed by Campazzo, with two triples to boot, and added to defensive improvements, it saw the visitors begin the comeback, romping to 21 points in the first six minutes of the second quarter, doubling their rival's score (40-34, min. 16). However, their 33% shot conversion rate continued to trip them up in offense, limiting their effectiveness. The hosts continually found 2+1s, almost always on the inside, as well as the the odd triple from Bertans which put the brakes on the comeback. The Whites did win the quarter 22-28 though, bringing the deficit down to 50-41 at the break.

Real Madrid has won on its last six visits to Milan.

The outlook changed in the blink of an eye in the second half. Real Madrid started to look more like their old selves, more recognisable as Laso says. Their outside line with Campazzo, Carroll and Rudy, not only shackled James and Nedovic, but were also contributing to the Whites' attack. Randolph and Tavares stopped the rot in the paint and the Whites took off with a 0-11 run to turn the game on its head, 60-61 in 28´. It was a fine reaction from Laso's men to win the third quarter 26 to 14.

Key minute
The closing stages were a battle between two of the Euroleague's best offenses. James and Micov were leading the way for the Milan-based team, while Real Madrid spread their points around. Going into the final two minutes the scoreboard read 80-81 to the visitors. As Pianigiani's team began to up the pressure, roared on by their fans, the Argentine connection produced a decisive moment. Deck took an offensive rebound before Campazzo netted the triple: +4 (80-84). Randolph, the game's standout player, effectively made sure of the Whites' second win in the competition with two free-throws. A 0-8 in less than a minute then finally felled the toughest of rivals (85-91, min. 40). Just 48 hours until the next Euroleague outing against Baskonia at home (9:00pm CEST).
