The most successful team in the EuroLeague has been finding recent success in head coach Pablo Laso’s leadership. The team has been efficient in the Spanish Basketball League. Their success in the Liga ACB seems to be translating well in the EuroLeague.
They have won ten titles in the history of the league. Their recent win was back in 2018. The team was led by Slovenian Luka Doncic for their campaign.
Doncic was named as the MVP. He led his team in the final game with 15 points to go along with three boards and four dimes. The guard was the youngest MVP at 19 years old. He then joined the NBA after this stint with Real Madrid.
The team has been enjoying Laso’s brillance. Since Coach Pablo Laso’s insertion to the team, they have won five Spanish league titles in nine years. These title wins include two back-to-backs in 2015 and 2016 and another in 2018 and 2019. They have found consistent success in his leadership.
Laso is faithful towards his team. The team is almost the same every year, having only a few roster changes. They continue to get better with their balanced roster, and no one can deny the experience the team has when it comes to winning games.
The team is in the pace for an impressive season. Their consistency has been a strong point in winning their last games. They stand fast and are a big offensive juggernaut that can rack up games.
No team has been able to match the record set by Madrid in the EuroLeague. Ten titles and eight runner-ups are the best that the league has ever seen. They are the only Spanish team to sit at the top 5 of the league records.
CSKA Moscow is not far behind the EuroLeague record. The team has eight titles and are the defending champions. Right now, CSKA sits at the fourth spot in the league, and are poised to go for their ninth title.
Madrid finished at third last season at 22-8. In those 30 games, they had a point differential of +236, meaning that the team did well but just lacked the necessary push to win last playoffs. They finished in the final four but fell against CSKA, 95-90 before winning the third-place against Fenerbahce in a 94-75 rout.
The team has the best defender in Edy Tavares. The 7-foot-3 centre has been phenomenal in contesting shots and has also been efficient offensively. He is boasting career highs right now. 79% field goal percentage is an impressive stat, along with 6.2 boards per game.
Considering that the team continues to push for a consistent finish in their games, there is a huge possibility that Madrid will go for another title run as they are set to get their three-peat in the Liga Endesa, and possibly, reclaim the EuroLeague title this season.
