Marcelinho Huertas’ brilliant three pointer may have sealed Barça Regal’s fate in the series against Real Madrid. In the history of ACB Finals, 92.85% of the time, the team that wins the first match of the final series goes on to claim the title. This has been the case in 26 of the 28 ACB title series playoffs.

Furthermore, 15 out of 17 times, the team that wins their first home game goes on to win their second home game.
