The Monbus Obradoiro is risking its life in the next seven days. Know what a victory in the three remaining games gives him salvation math. The problem is the rivals: Real Madrid, Valencia and Joventut; second, third and fourth in the standings, respectively. Moncho Fernández, local coach, knows that they cannot do accounts and asks his team not to look beyond today. On the other bench Pablo Laso continues to set goals, although leadership is no longer within his reach: “We have to defend second place and keep winning games until the regular league is over”.
Madrid comes with its best streak in months: six consecutive victoriesthree of them in the Euroleague quarterfinals, which has allowed to finally have “a quiet week”as Laso acknowledged. Jeffery Taylor has returned to training normally and the doubt is Rudy Fernández, which “is better” according to his technician. At Obradoiro, base Zurbriggen returns.
