Baskonia Vitoria-Gasteiz got their second win of the season in ACB against Fuenlabrada behind the great performances of Jayson Granger and Steven Enoch, the connection between the point guard and the big man was really effective throughout the game. After a very balanced first half, Baskonia was able to build a comfortable lead in the final period and win the game 95-86 (23-23, 19-18, 28-24, 25-21).

Baskonia struggled to distance itself from Fuenlabrada in the first half. The team coached by Josep Raventos kept his ground and had a huge offensive boost from Brazilian forward Leonard Meindl, who finished the game with 23 points, 5 rebounds, 4 assists, and 2 steals. 

In the second half, the story didn't change that much, with the game remaining very close and Fuenlabrada answering to every Baskonia's run. Only in the final quarter, the pick & roll game between Granger and Enoch became too much to handle for Fuenlabrada, who had to give up in their quest to win. 

Granger finished with 18 points, 7 assists, and 2 steals, while Enoch had 23 points and 9 rebounds. Giedraitis and Nnoko added 12 points apiece. 

Aside from Meindl, Fuenlabrada had a solid contribution from Kwan Cheatham, who had 15 points and 4 rebounds, and from Dusan Ristic, who finished with 13 points and 9 rebounds in just 15 minutes.
