Barcelona lost again in a semifinal against Barcelona. Of the five they have played, the blaugranas have kneeled four times… all in a row: 2013, 2014 and in the last two editions. His sad 14 of 39 from the triple, very determined to solve from long distance, finished them off.
Sertac Sanli. Bad. Without palliatives. The Turkish center was left without scoring and sent off for five fouls. His defensive activity against Tavares was nil and he never took the Cape Verdean center out of the place in attack. suspense.
Jan Veseley. From less to more, with foul problems in the early bars. No ability to influence the game: Facing Tavares is not good at all. Enough.
Sergi Martinez. Without incident in the game: he was on the court for only 2:19. Unrated.
Nikola Kalinic. He had a good appearance in the match, replacing Mirotic. He made a three-pointer, but faded like the rest of Barcelona. Enough.
Thomas Satoransky. When a team loses the north in attack, the culprit is usually the point guard and with the Czech you can’t make an exception. His numbers were good: 7 points and 11 rebounds. Enough.
Nicholas Laprovittola. The Argentine point guard was as always: there were sparks. He has indisputable quality and hence the 12 points from him without flinching, without having done anything out of this world. But it was that, a shooting star that did not help Barcelona to break the eternal rival. Good.
Alex Abrines. She went from heaven to earth without stopping in between. His appearance was stellar, with three triples almost in a row to wake up the Catalans. He had problems with fouls and that weighed on him throughout the match. Remarkable.
Mike Toby. He did not play.
Kyle Kuric. The American was one of the best of the Catalans. Abrines’ problems with fouls allowed him to shine more, after spending most of the season in the shadows. He had 11 points on 3-for-6 3-point shooting. Remarkable.
Rokas Jokubaitis. The young point guard pulled his left foot to unblock Barça in the first half. He took a good blow that caused him to break two teeth. He didn’t matter much. Enough.
Nikola Mirotic. Bad very bad. The power forward was denied at the launch with only 3 points, only 2 at stake. All of them, moreover, in the last quarter when Madrid was already touching the final with their fingers. His shooting card is a poem, going 0-for-7 from 3-pointer, many of them released. suspense.
james naji. He played a very good 8:55. With the foul problems of the Barça interiors, the pivot did well in defense. He was not out of tune at all. Remarkable.
