Rudy, back with a bang
The shooting guard made a sensational return after three and a half months out, hitting 4 from the field in Madrid's 9th three-digit win of the campaign.
Real Madrid's basketball team posted their ninth, three-digit win of the campaign, beating Morabanc Andorra 100-78 at the Barclaycard Center and seeting themselves up nicely for Thursday's decisive 'Euroclásico' against Barcelona at the Palau. There was also great expectation for the return of Rudy Fernández, who was due to play his first game after spending three and a half months on the sidelines recovering from a discal hernia operation.
Rudy entered the court to an ovation from the home crowd with 3:40 remaining in the first quarter. The shooting guard looked a little sheepish at first, but grew in confidence and was soon back to his best - first with an assist, then bringing down a rebound and after that, a steal. He retired to the bench after 7:35 minutes on court, 3 from 3 from the field and an PIR of 12.
