Barcelona move clear of Unicaja, Real Madrid march on

(MENAFN- Kora)

There was nothing to choose between the sides in the opening three quarters as they entered the final period tied at 51-51

But Barcelona kicked on in the fourth and managed to open up a five-point gap over their opponents - Brad Oleson top-scoring for the winners with an unremarkable tally of 11

The teams shared a record of 14-6 heading into this tie, but Barcelona are now a win clear in third as they chase down leaders Real Madrid and second-placed Valencia

Real's unbeaten season continued as they racked up win number 21 with an 87-76 triumph over Tenerife

Sergio Rodriguez - one of the stars of his side's Euroleague victory over Partizan Belgrade on Friday - top-scored once again with 22 for the men from the Spanish capital, who, like Barca, required a late surge in the fourth quarter to make sure of victory

Valencia may well be hoping for a miracle as they lurk three wins behind Real in the league standings, but kept their end of the bargain by disposing of Laboral Kutxa 67-55

Gran Canaria missed out on the chance to climb above Unicaja as they fell to a 60-53 home defeat against Rio Natura Monbus, who are one of four teams tied on a record of 10-11

Another member of that quartet - Joventut - inflicted more misery on basement club Valladolid by subjecting them to a 19th defeat of the season, winning 95-73, while Gipuzkoa Basket triumphed 73-65 over La Bruixa d'Or

In Sunday's remaining ties, Estudiantes edged Bilbao 86-80, and Fuenlabrada fell 81-72 at home to Zaragoza

Murcia defeated Cajasol 93-73 in the only clash to take place on Saturday
