Baskonia lost again on the European tour of the week. After playing an acceptable game against Partizan, against Zalgiris he showed his worst profile, with little scoring power in decisive moments, and clearly inferior in rebounding, offensive and defensive. Furthermore, losses piled up when he most needed a reaction. Nothing came of Ivanovic’s men.

The Vitorian team took the field in the second half with a serious problem. During the entire first he did not make any three-pointers (0 of 8), and he also missed five of his eleven free throws. With that handicap, winning the game against Zalgiris, who had done things fairly well, was going to be very difficult for them. The point is that Howard finished the first twenty minutes without scoring a point, and only Costello, with nine points, and to a certain extent Miller-Mcintyre, kept the tone, while Evans and Hayes hammered Baskon’s basket.

Despite Baskonia’s timid reaction in the second half, probably due to Ivanovic’s fiery performance in the locker room, things did not change much. Howard started scoring, but the others didn’t have the afternoon. Moneke was lost in the fuss, Marinkovic was lost in emptiness, and nothing came out for Captain Sedekerskis. So losing was the most logical thing.

Madrid cools down the Stark Arena with a lethal third quarter

Real Madrid, which has nothing at stake, was competing with a Partizan team that needed to win its remaining four games to get into the playoffs. In a hot atmosphere, as always in the Stark Arena, he managed to cool it down with a third quarter in which he overwhelmed his rival after Campazzo took the tone.

The first half was very even and with little scoring, especially in the first ten minutes (13-13), with bad shooting percentages, especially for Real Madrid, who did not make 60% of their field goals. tried. Despite everything, and although Partizan grabbed more rebounds, Chus Mateo’s team only lost one ball in the first half, and that, together with the fact that Hezonja was the only one who was inspired by the shot (16 points), Madrid was able to close the first twenty minutes with a two-point advantage (31-33).

But in the third quarter Real lost their temper, scoring more points (35) than in the entire first half, while Obradovic’s Partizan was diluted, with their faces becoming redder as the minutes passed. A partial score of 0-16 was lethal for the outcome.
