A great performance by the Hispanic Montenegrin (26 points) decanted the duel against Alba Berlin (80-67)
- Euroleague Ace is the clasificacin
He does it so many times that it can hardly be considered news. Nikola Mirotic (26 points, 28 valuation) was once again Bara’s great argument not only to maintain his winning streak against a tough Alba from Berlin (80-67). The triumph of those of Jasikevicius, in addition, it allows them to mathematically ensure the track factor in the Euroleague quarters. Pierre Oriola, throughout the entire crash, and Brandon DaviesIn the third period, they also stood out against an eminently choral rival, in which none of their scorers managed to reach two digits.
Bara was excessively lukewarm on defense in the first period. And, as much as he managed to finish the fourth with a minimal defeat, by 22-23, at times he also exhibited a certain lack of specificity in his attacking actions. Mirotic, the figure to which Barcelona fans can practically always be entrusted, and Oriola were perhaps the brightest on the part of the locals against an Alba in which the protagonism was much more distributed at all times. Thiemann, on the visiting side, stood out only slightly in a room in which Fontecchio, Sikma and Siva they also had a more than desirable contribution.
The second quarter, as much as the toe in the triples of Kuric It will mark a first quarter of 7-0 for the Barça fans and the locals will initially recover their best defensive facet, it was tremendously competitive. The Bara was able to leave by 38-30, just to see how the visitors, with the irruption of Koumadje and two triples of Sima and Eriksson, managed to momentarily equalize the light. However, the Barcelona team, clinging to the good work of Mirotic and the honor of Oriola, managed to reach the break with a slight income on the Palau scoreboard (45-40).
The fight of the Dawn
The Alba de Berlin, tremendously combative, for its part, fought the unspeakable to remain deeply involved in the game in the third period. Again, tremendously distributing the leading role among the men he had at all times on the track. On the Barça side, meanwhile, it was fundamentally the emergence of Davies, capable of scoring nine points in this third quarter and putting a spectacular plug on Siva, which allowed the locals to reach the decisive moment with some advantage. Granger, practically on the horn, he made sure that this distance was only four points (62-58).
An insistence that, despite everything, would only serve to die on the shore. El Bara faj tremendously in defense and, again, found Mirotic’s best minutes to build a maximum advantage of 13 points very soon, with a 9-0 run, which will remain until the end of the duel. The 80-67 final, somewhat misleading, given the evolution of the previous three quarters, the Montenegrin Hispanic will be in charge of finishing it with a launch from beyond the line of 6.75 to ensure the advantage of the home court factor in the quarterfinal .
