Basketball: Vital win against Fenerbahçe keeps AS Monaco in the game

Fenerbahçe AS Monaco

AS Monaco Basket have clinched a crucial victory against Fenerbahçe in Game 4 of their playoff series with the Turkish titans, setting the stage for an exciting showdown in Monaco later this week.  

The Roca Team have brought their chances of making it into the EuroLeague Final Four level again following an intense Game 4 against Fenerbahçe in the Ulker Sports Arena of Istanbul on Friday 3rd May. 

AS Monaco Basket emerged victorious, with a final score of 62-65. The win was vital as a defeat would have knocked the Rouges et Blancs out of the competition.  

We made the stops we needed to, and we were able to make the important shots,” said Elie Okobo, who contributed 13 points. “We succeeded in our mission: to return to Monaco for a decisive Game 5.”  

Mike James and Jordan Loyd also delivered impressive results, helping counter the absence of John Brown III, who is still out of action due to a shoulder injury. 

To limit them to 62 points is incredible. Tonight was life and death,” said AS Monaco’s coach, Sasa Obradovic, post-game.  

With the series now tied, the two teams will head back to Monaco later this week for the all-important Game 5.

A win apiece in the Salle Gaston Médecin in late April and now a hard-won victory for both teams in Istanbul mean that this final game in Monaco will be the ultimate decider on who makes it through to the Final Four. 

The game is scheduled for Wednesday 8th May at 7pm.
