The whites dominate from start to finish in the Buesa to continue at the top of the ACB. With a great version of Alocn at the controls and the pvot and the forward unapproachable for the Vitorians

Real Madrid is determined that adversity does not derail it. In that his self-esteem compensates for the casualties and the lack of reinforcements. In enhancing what they still have, which is not little. For example, to the most dominant pvot in all of Europe, long. And guys of such quality and possibilities as Deck. And young promises growing by leaps and bounds like Carlos Alocn. The three, in their best version, were too much for Baskonia, one afternoon at the Buesa to forget the classic and continue with ease at the head of the ACB. [74-85: Narracin y estadsticas]
May each wound soon have a small cure so that total collapse does not come. It seems the great goal of Pablo Laso is this course of patches. It happened last week with the patizano against Khimki, well resolved after winning in Saint Petersburg and Murcia. If Thursday’s classic once again questioned its strength with the fourth consecutive defeat against Bara, in the always rough Buesa Arena the whites showed their best side in a long time. And with a Tavares once again immeasurable: 16 points without failure, 12 rebounds and five blocks … influencing any action on the gray Vitoria park.
Madrid prevailed taking advantage of the weaknesses of a Baskonia without concentration, as if it were paying for its boasting on Friday against Bayern to continue in the ointment for the Top 8 of the Euroleague. Laso’s group dawned forcefully to the despair of a Dusko Ivanovic who could not curse more at every time out, with almighty Tavares -eight points, four rebounds and 17 valuation already in the first act-, with this so sweet version of Deck lately. With cheeky Alocn. With the only response from Vildoza, who took three free throws from his compatriot Laprovittola to put out the fire.
The advantage went until 14 (20-34), and there, with Tavares resting and a bit of Baskonia character thanks to the captain Diop y Dragic, the local team got closer. But Madrid had recovered its recently forgotten offensive joy – it was stuck at 70 points per game after the Cup – and did not lose a ball in the entire first half. On the way back from the changing rooms, he stretched the rope again with Causeur joining the party. And the script was repeated: there are few teams that cling more bravely to lost battles than Ivanovic’s.
Suddenly, they forced the errors of Madrid, the great Henry was plugged in and they closed the third act only six down. And then, to court Jaycee Carroll. Laso sensed that it was the key moment and he put all the meat on the grill with perhaps his most powerful quintet today. Deck and Thompkins have an unquestionable place in it, but also Carlos Alocn, increasingly the starting point guard with his 20 years just turned.
And in the blink of an eye, the duel against the league champion was definitively broken, despite the final baskonista makeup.
