Vidorreta, prophet in his land with a much superior Tenerife

Second victory in three days for the island team, supported by a huge Shermadini and Fitipaldo, against a Bilbao very stuck in attack.


Tenerife has added two ACB victories in three days. It is what this League has, conditioned by the pandemic, which postpones games and places them 24 hours later if nothing goes wrong, what can happen. After passing to Zaragoza at home, he almost had to catch a plane and stand in Bilbao, in an empty Miribilla for the first time in his long history of official matches that ended up becoming feats. The beginning of the course has brought a Canarian accent for RETAbet, which on Saturday had honey on its lips in Las Palmas with an unfortunate extension against Granca and in this home premiere, it has received the blow much earlier, in the second fourth escaped a Tenerife with much more arsenal and conjunction at this point in the season. Fitipaldo and Marcelinho, a master when it came to distributing game, were the masters of ceremonies and canceled the shine that Rousselle and Hakanson brought from the first day.

The first act was trial and error, to recognize each other mutually. Many familiar faces on the island side: Vidorreta, Marcelinho, Sergio Rodríguez, Sulejmanovic, Bogris ... and the injured Todorovic watching the clash from home. But the nostalgia lasted ten minutes. What the Iberostar took to adjust the pieces. As soon as Fitipaldo and Marce began to put the central 'pick and roll' to work, with Shermadini's continuations, what was happening was over. The Georgian pivot, above, allied with Bogris to prevent the locals' connections with Balvin. If there was no option out there, Vidorreta's bases would send the ball to the other side, to the corner, where only Doornekamp always appeared or else, Díez. Or if they didn't find that, the Brazilian guard would come in and take his famous one-legged shots. Bilbao was weighed heavily by 2-11 in triples, he was stuck for seven minutes in the second quarter and drowned earlier than expected.

The Iberostar was not illuminated in attack, but his defensive fierceness and his triples got him out of trouble. They could change the five in the assignments and stay the big one holding the boat to the small one. They dominated from the work in their own field. An unsportsmanlike attack by Rouselle for catching Doornekamp when she posted was shooting the difference: 28-43. 32-51 announced a beating of care. Bilbao seemed to be falling to the canvas and did not make fouls. Moses insisted on going out to the robbery and left the defense naked.

The RETAbet took refuge in a 2-3 zone to stop the Tenerife collective game. This time the bases, stellar in Las Palmas, were made small against Marcelinho and Fitipaldo. But the DNA of the Mumbrú team is not to give up, to sell their skin very expensive, and that was not finished, far from it. Kulboka wanted to interrupt the exchange of baskets that the visiting team was going to film and with a triple, put the Biscayan to 13. They tightened the pressure on the passes, raised lines and Vidorreta asked to simplify the game. A 12-1 lead with Brown brought the income to 64-72. Huge game of the North American escort that was useless. They rowed to shore but the feat this time was two ocholines placed one on top of the other. Fitipaldo ended up finishing off a glorious night and Dani Díez did not miss a shot to the basket. A non-existent lack of Hakanson to the visiting point guard upset Mumbrú, punished with technique. That was the end of his team's resistance.
