Caja Laboral's coach Zan Tabak used an eleven-player rotation in such tough game. point guard Pau Ribas (193-87) produced 12 points, 5 rebounds and 9 assists for the guests. Caja Laboral have an impressive ten-game winning streak. They maintain second position with 17-3 record having just two points less than leader Real Madrid.

Naturalized Montenegrin power forward Nikola Mirotic (207-91) orchestrated the victory by scoring 17 points and 7 rebounds (on 7-of-8 shooting from the field). Sergio Llull contributed with 21 points for the winners. American power forward Lamont Hamilton (208-84, college: St.John's) replied with a double-double by scoring 15 points and 12 rebounds for Gescrap BB.

It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Baloncesto Fuenlabrada. The winners were led by Spencer Nelson who scored that evening 14 points and 6 rebounds.
