Marcelinho is still full: 13 points and… 13 assists

Lenovo Tenerife, with Marcelinho Huertas still in full swing two months after his 39th birthday (13 points and… 13 assists!), pulled off a difficult game against Hereda San Pablo Burgos (91-78)a duel marked by the exterior success of the people from Tenerife, despite the intense defense exerted by the visitors.

Five triples by Sasu Salin and a total of 18 (of 38, 47%) for the team were decisive to overcome a team from Burgos that, despite going below for most of the clash, never threw in the towel, brought out their inner power and managed to get ahead on the scoreboard with eight minutes to go, but that effort paid dearly and the Lenovo Tenerife knew how to maintain composure and win the match.

Along with Salin, who shone in his scoring role, we must also highlight the contribution, once again, of Marcelinho Huertas, who knew how to successfully direct his teammates and give 13 important assists.

Starting off by dominating the game was a clear objective for Lenovo Tenerife and they did so thanks to Salin’s scoring ability which began to make it clear that today was going to be an important day. 12-5 in the fourth minute of the match, an advantage that the island team increased throughout the first half with differences that reached fourteen points (41-27) in the 16th minute of the match.

The Lenovo Tenerife was doing just fine. Good defensive work and successful in attack, despite the intense rival defense. But the Hereda San Pablo Burgos remained. He knew how to attack well in the inside game and did not allow the Lenovo Tenerife to leave permanently.

With a 49-42 score, the end of the first twenty minutes was reached in a very open game, with two teams scoring well and playing with a lot of defensive pressure.

It was the visiting team who wanted to hit the table after leaving the locker room, with a partial of 0-6. The local reaction was immediate and, again, the people of Tenerife would put land in the middle (56-48).

But Burgos was already another, they forced more positions in attack and created problems for Tenerife in the inside game. Dani Díez took advantage of two local errors to bring his team closer to the scoreboard, as did Gamble (59-57).

It was an unthinkable last quarter for the locals, mainly because the domain had been theirs during the first three quarters.

Gamblé tied the match at 67 and he himself put his team ahead for the first time (67-69)but despite this new situation, the locals were not nervous.

Salin would put his hand out again to put his team ahead with a triple (70-69). Huertas and Shermadini would contribute their own, but it would be Salin again (76-69) who would force Olmos to request a desperate time-out to try to stop the streak of Tenerife, with six minutes left to finish the match. The truth is that Lenovo Tenerife had already put the direct towards victory, starting with their good defensive work, but continuing with a successful attack. A 13-2 run in the closing moments ended the visiting options.
