In another all Spanish League showdown, Herbalife Gran Canaria lost its final preseason game in falling 65-78 to Coosur Real Betis at the Torneo CoPizza Ciutat de Mao in Mao, Spain. The game was tight early with Gran Canaria down 18-19 after 10 minutes. The islanders temporarily took the lead in the second quarter but were down 36-37 at halftime. It remained a close game and Gran Canaria was down 49-54 after three periods. The Real Betis scored the first five points of the fourth quarter to go up by 10 points and the margin was 11 points midway through the frame. Gran Canaria could not get closer than eight points the rest of the way.

Lokomotiv Kuban Krasnodar, for its part, moved to 1-1 in the 2021 Gloria Cup tournament by losing 67-97 to reigning Turkish Airlines EuroLeague champion Anadolu Efes Istanbul in Antalya, Turkey. Lokomotiv fell behind already by double figures in the first quarter, trailing 14-27. Evgeny Pashutin's team could not really get into the game and was down 28-54 at intermission and the deficit was still 49-79 after three quarters. Johnathan Motley collected 24 points, 8 rebounds and 4 assists for Lokomotiv but no other player had more than 8 points in the loss.

Elsewhere, Dolomitri Energia Trento dropped its third straight game in the Italian Supercoppa, just missing out in an 83-82 loss against Trieste. Trento was down 18-17 after 10 minutes and the deficit was 40-34 at the break. The team trailed by 10 in fourth but rallied back into the game only to see Diego Flaccadori have his potential game-winning shot blocked by Andrejs Grazulis at the buzzer. Cameron Reynolds poured in 21 points in the loss with Jordan Caroline scoring 16 and Desonta Bradford hitting 12 points.
