By beating FC Barcelona in the final (3-1), Real Madrid won their 36th Spanish league title, a record. With 8 points in the last quarter of a hung fourth game (81-74), Fabien Causeur proved that he was still the man of the finals.

Sarunas Jasikevicius will end up having nightmares of Fabien Causeur… Eliminated at the gates of the EuroLeague final last month following an immense performance by the former Bamberg player, Barça has just given up their championship crown. Spain thanks to an incredible last quarter from the best Breton of all time. With a sword of Damocles above his head throughout the money-time, the tricolor rear still compiled 8 points in the last quarter to complete Real Madrid’s 36th title (81-74, 3- 1 in the final): a basket after a start to the… right (!), an and-one then a high-level award-winning shot. All punctuated by several iconic celebrations: a kiss on the crest of the Merengues, which he has been defending since 2017, or a slit throat, a sign of the killing of Barça after his last basket…

At the end of the contract, Fabien Causeur surely gave credibility to the hypothesis of an extension with 17 points at 6/14, 3 rebounds and 1 assist, at the conclusion of an extremely successful final with an average of 12.3 units. Or a bandage on the injury of Belgrade, he who had completely missed his final against Anadolu Efes with -6 evaluation. Now triple champion of Spain, the ex-MVP of Pro A had the pleasure of living this title with three compatriots: Thomas Heurtel, used for only three minutes during these playoffs, Guerschon Yabusele, Madrid’s longest playing time evening (35 minutes) and who completed a personal double after the coronation with ASVEL last year, and Vincent Poirier, for whom this triumph will keep a special flavor. “I’m tired of losing finals,” he said this week, he who had already lost in the final of the Spanish championship (in 2018 against… Real Madrid) but also recently at the Olympic Games or in the EuroLeague. In the shadow of the giant Edy Tavares, absolutely monstrous this Sunday (25 points at 9/11 and 13 rebounds), the Ile-de-France interior thus obtained the first major trophy of his professional career: he notably won the Coupe de France and the Champions match in 2013 with Paris-Levallois, but without playing, then the Spanish Super Cup at the start of the season.

“I’m very happy,” he told Movistar Plus+. “This is the first title in a long series. It’s amazing to win! We are closing a great season, with a lot of events within the team. Despite all the injuries, the bad times, it’s wonderful to be able to celebrate this trophy. Everyone doubted us but we did the job. It’s awesome ! »

After a white season last year, Real Madrid is therefore returning to the forefront of the Spanish scene by offering itself its first national title since 2019. With an immense discharge of emotions when captain Sergio Llull offered the trophy to Pablo Laso, untenable behind the bench before the final siren, two weeks after his heart attack. With its unprecedented team of four Frenchmen, this Madrid team, back from the hell of a failed end of winter, has already entered the great history of the White House. But apart from a small point in Belgrade (57-58 in the EuroLeague final), his place was directly in the legend…
