The Euroleague game between the basketball teams Real Madrid and Partizan Belgrade was canceled shortly before the end due to a mass brawl between the players.
After a hard foul by Real’s point guard Sergio Llull 100 seconds before the end, professionals from both teams clashed on the floor and had to be held back.
According to the Euroleague live ticker, the referees pronounced disqualifying fouls against more than 20 players. The game was stopped with the score of 95:80 for the guests from Belgrade because neither team had the necessary number of two players to continue.
