FC Barcelona Lassa stayed hot on Sunday with a gargantuan victory over Unicaja Málaga at the Palau Blaugrana, 83–77. 

Carlos Arroyo and Pau Ribas were lights out from three-point territory and both scored 15 points in the winning effort. Ante Tomic chipped in 11 points, plus game-highs in rebounds (11) and assists (6).

Jack Cooley scored a game-high 17 points for Málaga.

Barça were outscored in each of the first two quarters and found themselves down 49–42 at the half, but a third-quarter onslaught fueled by stellar defense allowed them to erase the halftime deficit before fighting hard down the stretch to get the win.

The win is FCB's 20th in the league this season and allows them to stay in first place, tied with Valencia at 20–2 but ahead on point differential.
