Baskonia overcomes a bad start and beats Panathinaikos

The Greeks arrived at low hours after receiving a good lesson against Real Madrid. It has 19 players on the payroll but it appeared in Vitoria with nine professionals and two 16-year-olds. Arturs Kurucs was the player ruled out by the Catalan coach and Heidegger was able to make his debut before his fans. There were no good Baskonia precedents against rivals from the bottom of the table. This season he had fallen with Asvel, Bayern, Alba, Milan or Panathinaikos itself when these clubs traveled through the competition underground.

The Hellenes started with more energy than their rival (2-7, min. 3) with all the points obtained by Bacon. Peñarroya got very angry with that staging and called his first timeout very soon. Paris Lee further stretched the rubber with a 2+1. The Cazoo did not catch the pulse or the rhythm of the game in the face of the despair of the respectable. The Alaveses entered a bonus very soon and the green club took advantage of that circumstance (10-21, min. 7). But Howard put the team on his back and, with 11 points, closed the gap to finish the first act with a 21-23. It was already raining less.

Peñarroya’s team came to lose by 12 points in the first period, but Heidegger’s good role in management, improving Thompson, allowed them to take the initiative. A triple from the new point guard put the locals ahead for the first time in the match (24-23, min. 11). From there, the baskonistas did not lose face to the clash and they were always controlling the light (44-34, min. 17). The Buesa Arena team went to halftime 14 points ahead and that Howard missed a theoretically easy triple for him in the last moments of the quarter. The second act marked the trend of the clash (31-15).

The Greeks won the third installment 24-27. The early stages favored the Cazoo, which was up 20 points at 60-40. But Panathinaikos has good players and, after a slight relaxation, cut the gap with a partial 0-10. At the end of the third quarter, Markus Howard already had 20 points and Matt Costello, 13. In the PAO, Williams stood out, with 14 and, above all, Bacon with 16. This player threw a comb into the stands, when they whistled the fourth personal with technique included, but later apologized on Instagram. People got very angry with his gesture but later, on social networks, the fact that he apologized was appreciated. The rebound was won by the local team 28-23.

The people from Vitoria continued to keep their distance, not without a certain tension in the final stretch (85-77, min. 34) although later they were able to take the game to their home ground (93-81, min. 37) and win it with some solvency , despite the fact that the Athenians were down 7 at a critical moment. The final 95-90 was the result of a final make-up job. The last act was very long due to the continuous consultations with the instant replay. Both Heidegger and Thompson signed a good game in the 1 position. Darius was not fine scoring but he gave a recital distributing game.

The concern for the absence of Pierrià Henry, therefore, is now less. After a few days with his family in Vitoria, he went to Barcelona to maintain his physical condition with a personal trainer while waiting for the final decision on his anti-doping control case. The normal thing is that he does not play again this season but, if he does not give an official positive, no one should be surprised that, for example, he can sign again next season for the club from Vitoria. The Baskonia entity protects him, that is clear. For now…
