Baskonia feasts at the expense of Maccabi

Cazoo Baskonia came to the game after chaining two defeats in the Euroleague against Olympiacos and Asvel, while the Maccabees had only knelt in Istanbul against Fenerbahce (86-71). The rest of the days were counted as wins but four of the five games had been played at home against rivals smaller in length than the Turkish: Zalgiris, Monaco, Asvel and Panathinaikos. Second meeting “on the road” and second blow.

Baldwin was received with a standing ovation but the American, always circumspect and involved in his world, barely returned the greeting. Nearly a hundred Maccabi fans came to the Buesa Arena stands. 50 of them came with the team in the private charter and the other half hundred were Jewish residents near Vitoria who came to the Alava capital to cheer on their fetish team. They left with a bad taste in their mouths because the 116 local points are a historic figure in the history of the Buesa Arena club.

Peñarroya was worried because his team used to lose the first quarters and receive a barrage of many points. Then, it is also true, I ended up returning them. But the Cazoo put on his shoulder pads in the initial jump and began to percuss. By minute 2 he was winning 7-2 with Hommes as the offensive protagonist. The American quickly added 6 points. He was then joined by Raieste with 5 and Kotsar with a run of 7. By minute 5, the luminous player signaled a symptomatic 17-8. In terms of rebounds, the locals won at the end of the first act by 11 to 7. And it was true that the Macabeos are strong on offense and weaker on defense (6/1).

Giedraitis began the second installment with 9 points but the one who uncovered the jar of essences was, of course, a Markus Howard who went into the break with 13. Then there was a 3-14 run with a great Lorenzo Brown and the score narrowed to the concern of Vitorians (46-36, min. 16). Triples by Thompson and Marinkovic stretched the rubber again (57-38) so the stands exploded. When passing through the changing rooms, the Baskonia players had a projection close to 120 points at the end of the game. In terms of rebounds, more of the same (20/15).

Things did not change much in the third quarter (81-57, min. 26). Kotsar had 18 points, Giedraitis, Howard and Thompson 13 each. In addition to the offensive effectiveness, the team applied itself behind, trying to hide its interior inferiority caused by Enoch’s injury and, for example, causing many losses to its rival. The work on the passing lane was commendable. Brown (16), Baldwin (15) and Nebo (16) tried to reply scoring at a good level but the differences barely decreased. The third delivery ended with a 90-67 so the game was definitely closed. As soon as Baskonia scored, the Israelis had to achieve an unprecedented offensive production in just ten minutes.

Far from relaxing, the Cazoo continued to hit hard (95-67, min. 31). The machinery worked perfectly and the public had a great time. Those from Tel Aviv, very limp in defense and with their arms down. The punishment grew and Peñarroya’s men were over a hundred by minute 35. The president Simon Mizrahi, in his eighties, couldn’t believe it. In fact, he suffered under the rocks, sitting next to AS photographer Paulino Oribe. It was there that he witnessed a game in which his boys had no chance (116-84, min. 38). Scoring a lot at the Buesa Arena was nothing new for Baskonia but sweeping the first quarter made Joan Peñarroya very happy. That and being competitive on the rebound. Lorenzo Brown, from Albacete, finished with 20 points.
