Hommes quickly picked up 2 personal fouls in the first 70 seconds of the game, but then knocked down 3 triples in the next 3 minutes to get Baskonia going. Thompson and Rokas Giedraitis then sparked a 13-2 run as Baskonia held the visitors without a field goal the final 5 minutes of the quarter, opening a 24-9 lead. Three-pointers, one apiece from Hall and Nicolo Melli, gave Milan life as Baskonia needed exactly 5 minutes for its first field goal of the second quarter. But with baskets few and far between, Baskonia kept its lead safe and took a 38-27 advantage into halftime.
Davies had a jumper and a triple to cut the margin to 40-35 early in the third, but three-pointers from Thompson and Markus Howard restored a double-digit margin and sparked another 13-2 run which opened a 53-37 lead. A triple from Tomasso Baldasso helped halve the deficit and Baldasso hit another one early in the fourth to cut it to 56-48. Pierria Henry fueled a 6-0 run before back-to-back threes from Henry and Thompson made it 68-51 and Baskonia cruised to victory.
