Costello's heroics in Madrid
Matthew Costello and Cazoo Baskonia Vitoria-Gasteiz had a night to remember on Tuesday in Madrid. Costello hit a last-second triple while drawing a foul by Rudy Fernandez to lift Baskonia to a dramatic 81-85 win over Real. The last-season heroics were just icing on the cake for Costello, who spent first half of the fourth quarter on the bench with 3 fouls, then got his fourth with 4:06 to go in and Real up 78-71. In the remaining time, however, Costello scored 12 of his 20 points to lift Baskonia to victory. Costello played just 15 minutes and 29 seconds, but that did not stop him of tying his career high with 5 triples on 8 attempts. In a four-point win, Costello had a plus/minus of +15, a testament to the difference he made while on the floor in a huge Baskonia win.
