Istanbul's Darükşşafaka Doğuş defeated top-ranked Real Madrid 80-84 in Game 2 of the Euroleague playoffs on Friday night as the series moves for two games to Istanbul with the score tied at 1-1.

Darüşşafaka preserved the lead during the majority of the match. Real Madrid's Sergio Llull knocked down 5 three-pointers in six minutes of the third quarter but Brad Wanamaker rallied the visitors and Darüşşafaka's Scottie Willbekin gave Darüşşafaka a memorable win.

The teams were tied 78-78 into the final minute but Wilbekin spun in the lane to make a basket, giving the visitors the lead for good, 78-80, with 48 seconds to go. Madrid tried from downtown, but could not hit it, and Clyburn and Wanamaker sealed the outcome from the foul line.
