Facundo Campazzo turned in his best showing in a Real Madrid jersey in the victory over Valencia Basket, a match-up corresponding to the third round of games in the Endesa League Final Phase. The Argentine playmaker dazzled with a PIR of 42 in his 37:16' on court. He posted 29 points - a personal record for Madrid - with a superb shooting accuracy rate (3/6 on treys, 7/8 on two-pointers and 10/14 on free-throws). He also dished 11 assists,claimed three stelas and forced six personal fouls.

At the end of the game, he reflected on the team's performance: "We came into the game under a bit of pressure. It was a case of winning or waving goodbye to any chance of fighting for the title and that's when Real Madrid produced its best. We've got to keep going. Our main aim is to secure wins and make the semis. You've got to look at the good things we did tonight. We put in a great performance but we've got to be demanding with our game and improve on things".

"In fitness terms, we're not going to see the players at their best because we were out of action for three months, but I think things will improve over time. I hope that's the case. We've got to take a relaxed approach to it. We're a high-scoring team and when we play good basketball it's easier for the rotations to be longer".

Deck's performance
"It doesn't surprise me one bit. He's always ready to defend everyone and he offers things that the stats don't show you. He's contagious and any team would want him because he helps you to achieve big things".
