Pablo Laso's side has had an impeccable month of November, during which it has won all the games it has played. Real Madrid has won a total of eight matchups in 21 days, five of which were in the EuroLeague and four in the League, which has taken the team to the top of both competitions. The Whites played their first game on 5 November against Bayern Munich and clinched victory (76-80) in the final seconds, spearheaded by Yabusele with a PIR of 23.
This marked the beginning of a series of games, the second of which was at the WiZink Center two days later when the madridistas returned to their home court after four consecutive away trips to defeat Surne Bilbao Basket 95-61 in the ninth round of the domestic league competition. Hanga was the standout performer with 19 points and 5 three-pointers. The side's third victory came on 12 Friday against Zalgiris. Our team won 95-82 in front of the home fans, and this time Poirier was the best player (PIR of 23).

That same week less than 48 hours apart, Laso's charges earned their hardest-fought victory. It came on Sunday 14th away to Urbas Fuenlabrada with a three-pointer by Heurtel in the last second of the game securing the spoils (85-88). Last week, Madrid confronted three games including a EuroLeague doubleheader. On Tuesday 16th the Whites claimed an important win at Asvel (74-87) following excellent performances by Causeur, who scored 25 points in 18 minutes. On Thursday, the madridistas hosted Estrella Roja and the game ended with another victory (79-67) with the trio of Tavares, Poirier and Hanga all racking up more than 20 points.
The best defence and a fresh victory in Vitoria
On Sunday, Real Madrid rounded off the week with a league victory against Coosur Betis (71-48). Our team also produced its best defensive performance in the league since 2005, limiting the Andalusian team to only 48 points. The Whites sealed the perfect month in Vitoria on Thursday, 25 November, with their eighth consecutive victory in November. They then defeated Baskonia (60-88) in round 12 of the EuroLeague, to make it the second month with a 100% win record after doing so in September.
