Intercontinental2014 - Maccabi Electra Tel Aviv is the new king of Europe!
5/19/2014


Maccabi Electra Tel Aviv is the 2014 Turkish Airlines Euroleague champion! The city of Milan was painted yellow on Sunday as Maccabi Electra Tel Aviv bested Real Madrid 98-86 in overtime for its sixth European championship! After hitting the game-winning layup in the semifinals, Tyrese Rice, who scored 21 of his 26 points in the fourth quarter and overtime, was named the bwin MVP for the 2014 Final Four. Tel Aviv shook off three consecutive losses in the Euroleague Championship Game to become the 2014 Turkish Airlines Euroleague champion. Some 10,000 Maccabi fans flooded the stands at Mediolanum Forum and practically willed Coach David Blatt’s team to victory.

In the first Euroleague Championship Game to go to extra time in 45 years, Maccabi bested Real Madrid 98-86 after the extra session, to win its sixth European championship. In an instant classic of a game, Madrid led by as many as 11 points in the first half, but the second half alone featured 19 lead changes and seven ties. A pair of free throws from Bourousis with 21 second left in the regulation sent the game into overtime, 73-73. In the additional time, Rice scored 8 consecutive Maccabi points for 77-81, giving the Israeli champs the lead for good. Besides Rice’s heroics, Alex Tyus collected 12 points, 11 rebounds and 3 blocks, while Ricky Hickman had 18 points, Devin Smith hit for 15 and David Blu, who won his second Euroleague crown with Maccabi after the 2004 title, added 14 points. The freshly-crowned Euroleague season bwin MVP Sergio Rodriguez led Madrid with 21 points while Rudy Fernandez had 15 points and 8 rebounds in defeat. The record eight-time champion Real Madrid lost in its second consecutive final and is still looking for its first Euroleague title since 1995.

The 2014 Euroleague Champion will face the 2014 Liga de las Americas Champion, Flamengo in the 2014 Intercontinental Cup, to be played on September 26 and the 28 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
