The 2023 Final Four championship game had all the drama one can imagine, with Real Madrid rallying late to edge Olympiacos Piraeus 78-79 on Sunday in Kaunas. The game hero was Sergio Llull, whose only basket of the night – a high-arching mid-range jumper over Moustapha Fall with 3.1 seconds left – secured the title after Real had trailed for the previous 16 minutes. It was good for Los Blancos' record 11th trophy as the continental champion.
In addition to the drama, this game was one for the ages due to the many milestones and records that players and teams reached during the 40-minute thriller.
Rodriguez ran Real's offense masterfully, with 9 assists that tied a championship game record belonging to Ariel McDonald, Dimitris Diamantidis and Jeremy Pargo. Rodriguez now has 70 assists, the all-time high, across his 16 Final Four games.
