Real Madrid dismantled the Baskonia (65-83) in a match in which he recovered sensations against a Barça team that repeated the script of their last two Euroleague duels against Russian rivals, which, with this Sunday, confirm his gambling crisis.
The inner game of Pablo Laso’s men was much superior to the baskonista. The four Madrid pivots exceeded ten valuation credits.
In the local team only the Lithuanian Tadas Sedekerskis confirmed his regularity and went up to 18 valuation credits.
The two teams put their entire defensive arsenal on track from the start.he heard and the attacks suffered greatly to make a basket. It took Pablo Laso a short time to introduce a pure point guard, Thomas Heurtel, into his quintet so that his team reacted to a bad start that his rival caught.
The Whites improved with the French game director on the court and gave more speed to their offensive actions, which put them ahead on the scoreboard after the first act, 10-16.
Baskonia could not find a way to overcome the defensive wall built by a Real Madrid that was launched with 5 points from Guerschon Yabusele, which he completed a partial of 0-13.
The offensive rebound of the whites and two triples by Tristan Vuckevic after taking advantage of the defensive imbalances of the Catalans put Real Madrid back with a difference of 14 points, which stayed at 26-39 at halftime, after a first half that made clear the problems of the Baskonistas to score.
The Real Madrid players forced those of the Vitoria team to use one-on-one, where they felt more comfortable, while Edy Tavares dominated in the baskonista ring to expand the visitor’s income, although five points from Italian Simone Fontecchio put a stop to White’s intentions to break up the match.
Two techniques to the premises, accompanied by several offensive errors by the Catalans and two triples by Adam Hanga and another by Yabusele they left the game seen for sentence ten minutes from the end 38-63.
Baskonia could not find any player in a state of grace to pull a car that stopped rolling in conditions three games ago, and with the duel resolved Real Madrid just let time pass to recover feelings in the domestic competition.
Baskonia reacted in the last quarter, with a cheeky Arturs Kurucs, but it only served to prolong the agony in a match that the Madrid team clearly won.
