Valencia Basket examines an undefeated Barça

El Valencia Basket examina a un Barça invicto

Whatever happens this afternoon at the Palau, or Barça or Valencia will lose their streak. The azulgrana is spectacular, with nine wins and no losses in the domestic competition, equaling her best start in the history of the ACB.: 9-0 at 88-89. If they win today, they will break the record. Not bad is the dynamics of the Valencia, who does not know the defeat away from home in the Endesa League and that it is showing itself as a very competitive team away from La Fonteta.

Both come to the match, in addition, after two level victories in European competitions. Barça overwhelmed Baskonia (who came to win by 41) in an excellent match in which they overwhelmed the visitors. Mirotic, without a shooting error, achieved a PIR of 37 in just 18 minutes on the track. A good example of the level of collective and individual play of Jasikevicius’ team, who was able to rotate the headlines a lot, distributing minutes among the entire squad. A clear advantage for today’s game. But in this last European day (in his case in Eurocup) andl Valencia also had a great game. A comeback against Scariolo’s Virtus de Bologna that required much more effort on the part of the Valencians: they lost by 21 in the first half, but they took the crash. A meeting that, as is logical, has triggered the morale of Valencia.

Unfortunately for the visitors, however, they will still not be able to count on Claver, Tobey and Dimitrijevic, three of the strong men of the squad. In fact, Joan Peñarroya is very limited in his options, since he only has nine players from the first team. Quite the opposite of Jasikevicius, who has in his hand a multitude of options to configure his equipment. Without Abrines, he still has months off, and probably without Higgins (a low back pain has removed him from the team this week) all his other players will be available. And that means that Valencia will have to deal with Mirotic, Davies, Calathes or Laprovittola. The Argentine, in the absence of Higgins, is having more participation in the team and left Baskonia with magnificent sensations. Barça’s three other signings, Jokubaitis, Sanli and Hayes-Davis, are still one step behind the team’s stars, but all have enough quality to put any opponent in trouble.
