Baskonia prevails against Burgos before traveling to Tenerife

The current ACB champion won 91-87 and is already waiting for Barça. Those of Peñarroya completed a great last quarter but remained at the gates of the comeback.


TD Systems Baskonia left good feelings before the Endesa SuperCup by beating Hereda San Pablo Burgos in a friendly duel by 91-87, despite the fact that after 30 good minutes, the Burgos were close to tracing 24 points against after a carousel of triples in the last moments.

During much of the game, the Basques showed great physical display to overcome Joan Peñarroya's team, without Huskic or Benite, who ended the match with great confidence and never stopped believing in victory. The match had moments of great basketball on the part of two teams that are still fitting the pieces, as in the case of Khadeen Carrington, who has not taken the point and is having a hard time getting into Dusko Ivanovic's systems.

The best Barça player was Alec Peters, who despite being slow to enter the match, scored at times necessary and was very active to achieve 25 valuation credits, the same as Tonye Jekiri, who dominated the rival inside game. On the side of San Pablo Thad McFadden with 20 points was the best. The Vitorians started with an aggressive defense over their rival, but they failed to close the rebound in their basket and lost the advantage obtained in the opening minutes.

Omar Cook successfully took the handle of his team, which was superior in direct duels and surpassed his rival when the intensity dropped. The static attack was once again a headache for the Basques, but two triples by Argentine Luca Vildoza, who barely endured two attacks with his mask, and Ilimane Diop gave air to those of Dusko Ivanovic, who decided not to have Youssoupha Fall , but gave the first minutes to Arturs Kurucs.

The first round had a hellish pace and ended with a baskets on the horn of Pier Henry, who made it 21-15 after the first ten minutes. The speed of the counterattack offered more options to Baskonia in the second, although Burgos chained several positive actions and knew how to punish local errors to get closer on the scoreboard.

But Alec Peters began to score and his contribution gave wings to a Baskonia, which defeated Burgos in the first half 45-31. Ivanovic's men did not lift their foot after passing through the dressing rooms and their speed again shattered the rival, especially when Andrés Ugaitz hit two consecutive triples and put his team 57-33.

The Hereda San Pablo Burgos was filled with pride and tried to close the gap but Baskonia closed the third period with 71-52 in their favor. However, Burgos continued to make his game and his defensive work led him to get closer on the scoreboard after a good start in the last quarter (76-66) .

The exterior success of the Castilians reduced the difference to six points at 2:20 left while Baskonia only added from the free kick, enough to take the victory, 91-87, despite the overwhelming success of their rival from the three-point line. In this way, Ivanovic's men add their third victory of the preseason in 5 games and are remade from the defeat suffered against the Burgos on August 28 by 82-71.

Your next stake will be official. The current League champions will meet Barça on Saturday at 18:30 in the first semifinal of the Endesa Super Cup. For their part, Peñarroya's men count 3 victories and 2 defeats in preparation and just have a friendly against Urbas Fuenlabrada next Friday to close their preseason and put all 5 senses in the league start against Barça.
