Real Madrid is the first finalist of the Spanish league, after beating Gran Canaria 99-92 in Game 3 of the semifinals and achieving a 3-0 sweep.

Rudy Fernandez was the undeniable star of the night with his 21-point performance, though several players of Pablo Laso’s squad stood out. Jaycee Carroll finished with 17 points, while Sergio Llull added 13.

Despite having the upper hand in the opening period (27-25, 10′), Gran Canaria couldn’t keep its lead for too long. Fernandez was there to give his team clutch points and eventually the visitors reached the victory.

This is a night to be remembered for Felipe Reyes, as he became the player with the most participations in the league, counting 757 games.
