Goodbye-to-the-Cup-without-competing

"Chestnut, damn ..." They are qualifiers of Ponsarnau to the game of his team, in the first half. Valencia arrived packed in the Endesa League and with a golden card after having beaten CSKA does nothing. However, he barely competed the first five minutes against the worst Madrid in the last five years. And above without Tavares in the entire first part, loaded with personnel. Valencia Basket, determined to shoot (and fail almost always) from the triple, had no option throughout the clash. Despite putting seven and a ball, on a couple of occasions, the rainfall in attack prevented him from at least putting fear in the body of the whites.

The 5 of 26 in triples is indecent for a team that wants to be among the eight best in Europe. And if you are not on defense, what happened happens. Only Van Rossom and a bruised Kalinic left quality details. Neither was Ponsarnau fine when trying to change the game with the rotation or time-outs.

Despite the makeup of the last minutes, Valencia was out of the Cup since the middle of the third quarter. Very little for such a strengthened team this year. The Cup is already history. Another year without competing the most beautiful tournament of the year. So, now it's time to rest to achieve the goal of the season: finish the Euroleague in the top eight. That is not little. It is time to learn from this game because in the Euroleague, although it will be with a totally different staging, there will be rivals of the quality of Madrid. And better. It touches revitalize body and mind.
