EuroLeague round-up: Barcelona win eighth straight game, CSKA beat Bayern, drama in Valencia

Overall, the #Packers rank just 18th for yards gained per pass completion, and Rodgers has 4 throw aways. Brady is 8-34 on +10 yard attempts, and 3-11 on +20 yard attempts for #Buccaneers.

Whether it’s Brady’s O-Line, or Rodgers’ receivers; these QBs have trust issues right now.

This deep middle 48-yard TD pass brought the #Dolphins within one score of the Ravens in Week 2. It’s currently the 2nd-most improbable completion (20.7% chance) so far in the #NFL.

Burrow may have been sacked 13 times so far, but the #Jets rank 28th for QB pressures (12). Bounce back for the Bengals?

Barcelona win again

Barcelona made it eight wins in the row in the EuroLeague as they beat Crvena Zvezda 76-65 at Palau Blaugrana in their 500th EuroLeague game.

They top the table with eight wins out of nine, while Zvezda have lost six of their 10 matches.

The hosts led 19-6 after the first quarter and never lost control of the game. Nikola Mirotic scored 23 points in 23 minutes, while Nick Calathes added 10 points and eight assists.

The league’s top scorer Jordan Loyd scored just two points for the visitors.


Bayern lose

Second-placed side Bayern Munich were beaten at home 89-81 by CSKA Moscow.

It was only the German club’s third defeat in 10 matches in the EuroLeague this season, while CSKA won their fifth consecutive game in a row.

Mike James scored 25 points for the visitors, while Nikola Milutinov scored 18 points and made 12 rebounds.

Madrid into fourth

Real Madrid moved into fourth with their fifth consecutive win in the EuroLeague, beating Fenerbahce.

Alberto Abalde scored 17 points for Los Blancos, and Jaycee Carroll also made 15.

It was their fourth victory in five home matches, and meant Fenerbahce lost their third straight match in the league. The Turkish side have lost six of 10 games this season.


Valencia produce thrilling comeback

Elsewhere, Valencia beat Maccabi Tel Aviv 82-80 in a thrilling battle, coming back from 77-70 down with 2.21 minutes to go to win the match.

It was Valencia’s sixth win in nine matches and they sit fifth in the table.

Klemen Prepelic made 22 points for Valencia. Scottie Wilbekin scored 25 points for Maccabi,  who lost their fourth game in five.
