Ingles, Jawai miss out on Euro final

Australian basketballers Joe Ingles and Nathan Jawai have fallen short in their bid to reach the prestigious Euroleague final in London.

The pair featured in Barcelona's heartbreaking 74-67 semi-final loss to Spanish rivals Real Madrid at the O2 Arena on Friday night.

Madrid will now meet reigning champions Olympiakos in the deciding match of the Final Four tournament while Barcelona will face CSKA Moscow in the third-place playoff.

Barcelona looked on course to reach Sunday's final after building a nine-point lead midway through the third quarter.

But Madrid powered home with a 17-2 run to earn a shot at their first Euroleague championship in almost two decades.

"We were leading with four or five minutes to go and to lose that lead so quickly is really bad," a frustrated Ingles said.

"Our defence was pretty bad in the last couple of minutes and you cannot do that against a good team.

"When we had a nine-point lead, we had to be smart and take care of the ball, get good shots, but we did everything wrong."

Boomers star Ingles, 25, has enjoyed a superb European season and, with his contract up, is expected to land a deal in the NBA.

However the 203cm forward's influence was limited as Madrid kept him to five points, five rebounds and two assists.

Jawai was a surprise inclusion after suffering a foot injury last weekend, but he managed only two minutes off the bench.

Felipe Reyes top scored for the victors with 17 points while Barcelona were led by Marcelinho Huertas with 19 points.
