Baskonia steamroller against a disconnected Valencia

Two teams with identical hallmarks faced each other in the standings: 13 wins and 12 losses. He average Particularly favorable for the Basques, who won by 10 points on the first day of the regular phase of the Euroleague. The people from Vitoria could not count on Sedekerskis, with adductor discomfort, while the Taronjas showed up at the Buesa without Hermannsson, Van Rossom, Jiménez and Alexander. Morbo with Peñarroya, who last year occupied the opposite bench although it was already the third meeting between them this season. The one from Tarrasa decided not to have Steven Enoch. And he was not bad at all.

The duel started with a triple by Webb and a miss, from the same distance, by Giedraitis. López Aróstegui, the most inspired, was paired with Howard and tried to make him fall into the trap of personal fouls. In attack, the American was not very wise either because he signed 0/2 in shots from three with 0/4 in field goals in the early stages. The one who did stand out was Thompson, with 2 points, 2 assists in just two minutes. The scare was given by Webb with a blow to his left knee. The clash was tied at minute 6 (17-17). There was a play that gave 6 consecutive points to the local team and the event ended with a slight difference in favor of the Alaveses.

A dunk from Hommes put the babazorros ahead on the scoreboard for the first time in the match (19-17) and, from then on, the Cazoo did not lose face in the clash. Baskonia started the second period better (initial partial 7-4) with a Heidegger who joined the party. Also Dani Díez and Sander Raieste contributed a lot of energy. The home team rebounded, ran and scored. Daulton Hommes had 12 points at halftime and Thompson had 16. Marinkovic also scored. In the Levantines, good minutes from Jones so as not to get out of the game definitively before time. The people from Vitoria went to the locker room with 15/21 shooting from the field and a favorable difference in rebounding from 17 to 13. At halftime, they added 57 points in their private locker and, in the last two periods, they would get another 57. Symmetrical match for them.

The third quarter ended with a very evident 81-64. The partial of that period was 24-16 and Peñarroya’s team, which saw a technique after prior notice, began to move in differences greater than or around 15 points (65-50). Hommes broke an all-time record for free throws taken and converted without a miss that Macijauskas had since 2003. When he chained 15/15 he took that honor. In minute 33, Baskonia beat Valencia Basket 97-66. It was a self-esteem bath for a limping team in recent weeks. And on top of that with the damaged Hommes as the protagonist. A man who has a recurring pain in his knee. Great game also from Thompson, Costello and Giedraitis. Harper, who saw a technique, made 9 points in the third quarter.

From minute 20 to 35, Valencia had only scored 16 points. Besides, he conceded a lot. There were five to go and the Cazoo already reached the number 100, with a triple by Heidegger. The taronja chained more than 5 minutes without scoring in the final act. The game, which was already very slow, seemed eternal to the Mumbrú team, which received a run of 21-0. In fact, 8,566 people enjoyed a great blow on the table of a club that dreams of playing in the Final Four. They haven’t done it since the one in Berlin but with rhythm and intensity they are an unstoppable group.

And that his star, Markus Howard, was lost in combat (-9 personal valuation). He average He was at +10 for those from Peñarroya but, obviously, they did not have to resort to him. Is about the second best team rating for Baskonia in its Euroleague history, only surpassed by the 149 achieved in his day against Limoges. Those from the Buesa Arena add their 14th victory and are now preparing for Tuesday’s match against Real Madrid in the Spanish capital.
