FC Barcelona Lassa got back to their winning ways in the Liga Endesa on Sunday afternoon at the Palau Blaugrana as Justin Doellman had a double double with 15 points and 10 rebounds in a 76-65 victory over Montakit Fuenlabrada.

FCB Lassa have now run their record to 7–1, good enough for second place in the Liga ACB standings. Barça's lone defeat came the week before at Laboral Kutxa.

The Catalans got vital support from center Ante Tomic and guard Tomáš Satoranský, who chipped in with 12 and 11 points, respectively. Tomic also lent Doellman a helping hand on the boards, grabbing 7 rebounds, with all but one coming on the defensive glass.

Shooting guard Ivan Paunic scored a game high 16 points and point guard Ricardo Úriz racked up a game-high 14 assists for Montakit Fuenlabrada in the losing effort.

FC Barcelona's 21–13 lead at the end of the first quarter ended up holding up. Fuenlabrada outscored Barça 18–16 in the second quarter but the damage had already been done.
