Beşiktaş beat Dragons 74-73 away on March 13 to forge ahead in the series, and the club now has the chance to close out the series to advance to the Final Four. If the Dragons win tonight, the series will be decided in a third game to be played in Germany on March 20.

Zoran Erceg and Pops Mensah-Bonsu had 46 points and 18 rebounds combined to lead Beşiktaş to the victory.

Beşiktaş is the only remaining Turkish team in all men’s European basketball competitions.
