Anadolu Efes didn’t let the sting from last Thursday’s streak-breaking loss on the road linger very long.

Shane Larkin came off the bench red hot to pour in a game-high 23 points 8-of-11 from the field, and added three steals to help Efes get back in the win column with a 86-72 victory over Crvena Zvezda at home at Sinan Erdem Sports Hall. The victory pushed Efes’ EuroLeague record back up to 12-10 after Round 22.

After getting off to a slow start in their Round 21 loss to Zenit St. Petersburg last week, Efes came out strong on Tuesday, building an early 14-3 lead. When Shane check in a few minutes later the score was 25-11. No. 0 wasted little time making his impact felt, knocking down the first of his five threes two minutes into the second quarter. All told, Shane posted 15 points in the second quarter as Efes rolled into the break with a double-digit lead.

“Last week when we played in St. Petersburg, we came out slow and they got a big lead on us in the first quarter, first half we were down 20 points,” Shane said. “We wanted to make an impact today in the first half, come out strong and play aggressively, and that’s what we did.”

From there it was just a matter of holding on, and they did, thanks to some more outstanding plays by Shane.

Efes was scheduled to be back in action on Thursday, heading to Israel to fave Maccabi Tel Aviv in Round 23. However, that match has been postponed indefinitely due to travel restrictions in Tel Aviv related to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The game is expected to be rescheduled, though a date has yet to be announced. Efes’ next scheduled EuroLeague game in the meantime isn’t until Thursday, February 4 at FC Barcelona. Tip-off is slated for 3 p.m. ET.
