This Valencia Basket does look like the one Ponsarnau wants, especially the one from the first half. They were two almost perfect quarters against an opponent who had destroyed you in the Cup eight days ago. Basketball from the pass. And from the success, both three and two. The taronjas erased Madrid from the map from the defense. Tavares didn't know whether to come or go. And only Carroll bailed water with an excellent shooting card.

Everything was forged again under the baton of Van Rossom, MVP of the game, who finished with 16 points and 8 assists. And most importantly, when Valencia dropped their concentration somewhat and lost more balls than they should, in the second half, the Belgian dropped his heart rate and brought the duel back into the proper lane. Always from the coral basketball: the ten players who entered Ponsarnau's rotation scored.

This Valencia is in the playoffs. We will still have to fight a lot in the nine games that remain. The next game against Zenit in St. Petersburg is crucial. But from solidarity in defense, passing basketball and inspiration in shooting, the goal will be closer. Now it's about regaining consistency and balancing those ups and downs that were killing Valencia. Before the whites there were also. But they managed to reverse them before Madrid got into the game. That's the idea. Now it is time to establish it in the short-term collective.
