La Fonteta burns. The stands and the game were set on fire, with Valencia Basket attacking to tie a duel that seemed lost. It burned so much that Jaime Pradilla, graduated with honors in the Eurobasket, did not want to look at the basket. so much that Van Rossom, ice doll, he didn’t see it clearly either and he wanted to give it back. And in those I appeared dzanan muse. The Bosnian caught the pass on the fly and began to squeeze the last minute. To protect the ball against the overwhelming defense of Claver. To cast the hook to force the foul. As soon as the Valencian extended his arm, Musa launched the reply. On his way to the hoop, he passed Claver, Van Rossom, and dubljevicand scored the layup that killed the game (73-80: Narrative and statistics).
It had also been Dzanan Musa who had broken the 7-0 run with which Valencia Basket had rejoined the game in the final minutes. And who had scored the previous basket for the Whites in another penetration, the weapon that did the most damage to the Taronja team (10/13 in shots from two, 20 points in the paint). It was for situations like this that Real Madrid had signed him this summer. To return to have the great external referent that he had not had since leaving campazzo. The Bosnian leader with 28 points was the fourth straight victory for the Whites in the Euroleague.
A victory much more suffered than what was guessed in the first quarter, as placid as the duel against UCAM Murcia had been. Valencia Basket, had to admit it himself lex mumbr, came out relaxed, and Real Madrid overwhelmed in the first quarter. Very solid at the back, successful in attack and with flight in transitions. At the beginning of the second act, the difference already reached 16 points and did justice to the game. Had they arrived a little later, the taronjas would have found themselves without a party.
But they reacted in time. With Dubljevic (15 points) driving away as always Tavares from the paint, and with a good defense that turned off the Real Madrid second unit. The whites’ lack of external aiming also stopped that bleeding, and gave way to a tug-of-war in which they always took the initiative, but in which they never got rid of Valencia Basket. Cup by cup, reducing points from an advantage that had seemed insurmountable. Just enough to give yourself options in the last quarter.
And there Van Rossom appeared, sharp with 11 points to lead the last arrenta taronja; appeared Gaby Deck, master of the back roads to the hoop; and at the hottest moment, Dzanan Musa appeared.
