Gran Canaria maintains its European roller

Not even the casualties stop Gran Canaria. Not in Europe either, where today a good feast was given at the expense of the willful Bursaspor (74-85), who lost 49-71 seconds after the start of the last quarter and got to 70-79. With this victory, the decimated team of Porfirio Fisac ​​(absences of Brussino and Stevic, with COVID, or Albicy, with muscular problems), maintains the leadership of Group B of the Eurocup thanks to its fourth consecutive victory in the second European competition.

The start of the Gran Canaria game was overwhelming, increasing his dominance as the minutes passed on the warm Turkish court. Ilimane Diop’s start of the game recalled the best moments of the Senegalese giant in Vitoria, and with five points in a row, triple and mate, plus a last stopper, he gave the island formation the first advantages: 0-5. The defense of the Fisac ​​boys had the pale Bursaspor totally anesthetized, who grabbed a Needham 3-pointer to make it 5-9 to believe that the rival start were simple fireworks.

Nevertheless, Granca was embroidering his best basketball at times. It is true that six points almost followed by Dudzinski brought his team closer, 11-6, but the visiting team had the tractor mode activated. Slaughter gave him a dangerous 11-20, repeating the American guard to reach the psychological advantage of 10 points, 16-26, and the Turkish team seemed to achieve enough by cutting that distance by three points before the end of this first quarter.

The second period started with Pustovyi exercising like the giant that he is, and with four points in a row he threw his own on the scoreboard: 19-32, the maximum difference of the match. The game got stuck in both baskets, which also benefited a Gran Canaria that kept the helm of the game without much effort or fuss. It happened that with each attempted Ottoman action an immediate insular reaction arose. Let them tell the always cash Shurna, who broke 8 points in a row, including two triples, to keep things as they were: 34-45. However, a small partial in favor of Bursaspor left almost everything in the air for after the break: 38-45.

Second part

The Turkish team had done the hardest thing: to get back into the game. However, the comeback was unsuccessful. A Needham triple brought him back to life, 43-45, enraging a Gran Canaria that, since then, ruthlessly destroyed their rival. The Fisac ​​team began to get serious again with two triples from Slaughter and Shurna for 47-55, that so much energy put into the worn out insular battery.

From there until the end of this period, the Fisac ​​hosts defeated their rival with an unquestionable 2-14 partial led by the trident made up of Slaughter, Shurna and Pustovyi, three key players in the Segovian coach’s idea of ​​the game. Thus, that score of 49-69 at the end of the present act he left everything for sentence except for a miracle that was not even considered.

After a triple by Ennis that gave him an unappealable +21, 53-74, Gran Canaria relaxed. Some concern was generated in their ranks, as they were suddenly with an 8-0 partial against that left a score with 66-78 with just under four minutes of play ahead. Bursaspor was beginning to believe it against an inexplicably nervous opponent, who had the game closed very shortly before. Alimpijevic’s team believed it so much that they forced Fisac ​​to call a timeout with 72-81 and just 1:14 of a game ahead.

However, everything was already done, but just in case the men in black today knew how to perfectly preserve a victory that, saved in a specific moment of downturn after the break, was never in danger. Without a doubt, the best possible vitamin before the Canarian derby this Saturday.
