Anadolu Efes (9-2) came close to suffering a home defeat to Bahcesehir (5-6) but Vasilije Micic came up big in overtime to secure a 95-88 (20-18, 28-22, 20-27,18-19, 9-2) victory for the reigning EuroLeague champs.

Micic finished with 23 points, 2 rebounds and 4 assists, while Shane Larkin followed with 18 points, 7 rebounds. Tibor Pleiss had 11 points, 13 rebounds, 2 assists and became the other architect of the win.

Richard Solomon had the chance to win the game for the visitors but he missed in the last possession of regulation which ended at 86 apiece.

"Those games are not easy, they are very difficult. We played the Barcelona game here 48 hours ago, we lost in overtime. There is some disappointment and fatigue.

Bahcesehir are a team that is fighting well, they did not back down. At the end of the match, they also got the chance to win," Efes coach Ergin Ataman said post-game.

Jamar Smith came just one rebound and one assist shy of a triple-double, as he logged 19 points for Bahcesehir. Langston Hall and Jamal Jones both had 17 points and Berkay Candan added 13.
