Real Madrid have responded brilliantly to a gutting defeat in the EuroLeague Final. Since that ill-fated May 21 outing in Belgrade against Turkish side Anadolu Efes, during which they simply could not locate the basket, Los Blancos have bounced back spectacularly. Ever since returning to Spain for the Liga ACB playoffs, Madrid have taken the floor four times, won four times, all by at least nine points, and allowed fewer than 75 points in three of those games.

The first two of those victories eliminated Boxi Manresa in the best-two-out-of-three opening round, to advance to the semifinals. In this final four round against Basque side Saski Baskonia, Real Madrid have continued their outstanding play, with a pair of double-digit home victories. In the series opener, at 94-84 win, they were led by French shooting guard Fabien Causeur, who had 16 points and six rebounds, and especially Edy Tavares (12 points, 13 rebounds and an awesome +26 in just 24:30 on the court). They followed up that performance two days later with an equally impressive defensive showing, holding Baskonia to just 35% shooting (including just 23.1%, or 6-of-26 on 3-pointers), and rode strong outings Adam Hanga (18 points and a +26 in 26 minutes) and Tavares (15 points, 8 rebounds and a +22 and 20 minutes) to an 83-71 win that, in actuality, wasn’t nearly that close.

Game 2 of these series marked the sixth meeting between these teams this season (twice each in the domestic league, EuroLeague and these playoffs), and the fifth double-digit Real Madrid victory – the sixth meeting was an eight-point league win in Madrid for Baskonia in late March.

The series now moves north, to Vitoria-Gasteiz in Spain’s Basque Country, where Madrid will look to complete a second straight sweep and book a place in the Liga ACB Finals against the winner of FC Barcelona and Joventut Badalona, who are currently tied 1-1 in the other semifinal series. Given the sheer volume of high-intensity games they’ve played in recent weeks, and the rather significant cushion they’ve built up in this series, Madrid could be forgiven for taking a bit of a breather in Game 3.

However, given the manner in which they finished the domestic league campaign, their form in the EuroLeague (the final excepted), and their recent head-to-head dominance against Baskonia, it’s tough to see any result other than a Madrid victory – though it wouldn’t be shocking if the 9.5-point spread proves a bit hefty on the road, against a team battling for its playoff life. In light of Madrid’s excellent defensive play in all competitions of late, a safer bet in this scenario is on an outright Madrid win, in which at least one side (probably Baskonia) struggles to light up the scoreboard.

Real Madrid predicted starting lineup: Nigel Williams-Goss, Fabien Causeur, Ádám Hanga, Edy Tavares, Guerschon Yabusele

Saski Baskonia probable starting lineup: Wade Balwin, Rokas Giedraitis, Simone Fontecchio, Alec Peters, Steven Enoch
