Shane Larkin was at his clutch best in the closing moments on Tuesday and helped push Anadolu Efes to the Euroleague Final Four.
Shane scored 10 points, but seven of them came in the fourth quarter, including a huge three and four free throws, each of his scores giving Efes the lead. Then, with the score tied at 83, it was his teammate Krunoslav Simon stepping up with a monumental triple to give Efes the lead for good. They made the free throws and got the stops they needed from there to secure an 88-83 victory over Real Madrid in Game 5 of the EuroLeague playoff round series. Efes wins the series 3-2 and advances to the Final Four once again.
Efes heads to Cologne, Germany later this month to play in the EuroLeague Final Four. Semifinal matchups are scheduled for Friday, May 28th with the Championship Game set for Sunday, May 30th.
