Bilbao Basket agonized a crucial game in Murcia, pressured by the victory of Betis moments before, worse has had little time for celebrations. He receives a visit from Manresa in Miribilla on Saturday and chaining two victories would make his self-esteem grow a lot. "Any game, also against the rivals from above, is a new opportunity to continue growing. Every time we are going to play more and we have to add, due to the situation we are in," says Mumbrú. "Manresa is also in need because they will want to win so as not to fall off the playoff. When the last days arrive, the stake is always higher, you are always playing something, everyone has things to fight for," explains the coach of the Bilbao Basket.

"We choose those that we consider to be the best, they earn themselves to appear in each game and there are also tactical parts," adds Mumbrú. The Lithuanian 'four' has taken note, "it is normal, it would be bad not to see a reaction when looking outside." The Catalan coach notes that the team has had better feelings in these last two months, "it is important to do things well and grow as a group"

In this sense, he praises two former men in black: "Rafa Martínez is very important for any team, on and off the court. We know the experience he has, he reads the game very well, he is a special player that everyone He likes to have a team. And Tabu (decisive in the first lap), he is not participating much, but with Dani Pérez's injury he plays something else. Dani is an engine in terms of assists, but they have signed Ferrari. "
