Tavares, Euroleague all-time top blocker

NEWS STORY. 15/12/2022

With the four he scored against Zalgiris, the Madrid centre now has 321 and overtakes Dunston.

Walter Tavares continues to make history in a Real Madrid jersey in the Euroleague. The centre has become the top blocker in the competition with the four he made against Zalgiris Kaunas. The Cape Verdean overtook Anadolu Efes' Dunston, and is now four blocks ahead of him (321).

However, Tavares takes even more credit for the record time that he has needed to achieve it. While the American has needed ten seasons and 278 games, the Madrid player has achieved his in just six and 157, at an average of 1.8 per game. Last Tuesday, in the win over Bayern in Munich, he broke his personal record in a Euroleague game with six blocks.
