It doesn't matter that nothing is at stake and that the protagonists on the hardwood are the bizarre ones, as a result of once they discovered themselves in water as much as their necks, when Red Star left with a 16-point lead, the white group placed on their overalls. I work to elucidate that he doesn’t settle for anybody coughing at him, that it’s his gamers who impose the regulation.

In electrical days to shut the European league, Real Madrid is the one group that has earned the best not to have a look at the desk, not even within the rearview mirror, having already certified as champions for the qualifying spherical previous to the Final Four. With his homework performed and the calls for of the calendar to return, Chus Mateo determined to provide his gamers some air, to the purpose that Campazzo, Deck and Poirier took the day without work. It was an evening to rotate, to check the generations that arrive. And though Hugo González and Ndiaye nonetheless expressed doubts (to a sure extent additionally Alocén), considerably timid with the ball of their fingers, theirs being somewhat shaky due to fulfilling their duties in the most effective European group, they defined that they’re the longer term. More Ndiaye, who quickly renounced himself, since within the first quarter he put up a block after which scored a dunk that made the board shake. But all of them have been capable of be taught from Musa, the delicatessen participant, who scored 9 of the group's first 11 factors, sufficient to not lose monitor of the momentum of a Red Star that attempted to get Tavares out of the paint with Bolomboy's actions to that Nedovic and Ilic wreaked havoc inside. But that additionally didn't final lengthy, as Sergio Rodríguez got here out to the park and distributed sweet to everybody, an injection of basketball for a Madrid that completed the prologue with a drawback of 1 level (20-21).

The children of Sergi Llull have been additionally capable of take word, who got here out within the second quarter to have a good time his four-hundredth recreation within the Euroleague, who had in his thoughts the historic file of the ex-Azulgrana Juan Carlos Navarro and his 623 triples, since he solely had three left to go. attain him. “The record is there, I try not to think too much about it and I will try to play like just another day, and if it comes, then great,” Llull resolved earlier than the match. He shot 4 and made water in three, though it didn't matter as a result of the followers loved the peripheral imaginative and prescient of him, like that alley oop pair of Hezonja. Precisely Super Mario, sulking because the Cup as a result of he understands that his basketball provides him extra minutes, even whether it is about Madrid, he was the one who was in tune from the perimeter. Although the depth of the Madrid bench, incomparable with some other group and expressed by the inspiration of Abalde, was not sufficient to seek out Red Star at halftime (44-47), since Nedovic entered the kitchen like Pedro by means of his home, 18 factors to this point (30 on the finish).

The Serbian was not glad along with his recital, since he continued his efforts to defeat a poor Madrid, present in and out, a rocket of legs and arms, a doll's delight. An ode to basketball seasoned by Hanga, what's new Old man, additionally sensational in taking pictures from outdoors the radius, which was sufficient to open the hole (54-70). Quite a slap within the face to Madrid, who appeared incapable of maintaining with the rival, unconcerned in any case as a result of he didn’t even remotely apply himself to the defensive train due to the truth that the conflict, the outcome, mattered a lot to him. Although Yabusele, Musa and Hezonja, who have no idea how you can take a vacation, requested for the alternative to satisfy the epilogue with solely three factors behind (72-75).

A triple by Sergio Rodríguez put the rating at zero, however Nedovic was not prepared to lose what he had achieved, now helped by Bolomboy. A brand new development spurt that didn’t break down the resistance of Madrid, who returned to the sport with the penetrations of Yabusele and a brand new reminiscence from Musa from the nook, one other later with a layup, seasoned with free throws. But Hanga had extra (private file of 27 factors); however Hezonja too, a triple, a steal and a dunk, 96-93 with 30 seconds left, a pageant in a WiZink that needed to acknowledge the trajectory of his group and that received a terrific recreation for the retina. Normally, this Madrid doesn't know how you can lose.
