The Barcelona remains leader of the Endesa League after defeating Monbus Obradoiro, by 79-73 (37-32). As happened on Thursday with Anadolu Efes in the Euroleague, the azulgrana built their victory from an excellent defense, enough to go back to the start (0-11 at 2.12m and 19-20 at the end of the first quarter) and then manage the advantage in a little brilliant match at the Palau Blaugrana. The figure was again Kevin Seraphin, who scored 18 points and captured 11 rebounds, for a 30 valuation. Also they emphasized Pangos (9), Pau Ribas (11) and Heurtel in front of the good work of Singler (19 points) and Obst (20 points and 6 triples in 6 attempts).
The day is completed today with four matches, one especially interesting at the Buesa Arena: Baskonia-Real Madrid (19.30h #Vamos). "We need to recover sensations," said Pablo Laso, the Madrid coach after the defeat of his team against Fenerbahce. "You have to turn the page quickly in a very demanding meeting," Laso closed. Both teams have the same wins (10) and defeats (3) and are second and third in the standings behind Barça (12 and 2).
The Estudiantes party, on the other hand, was marked by the death at the age of 83 of José María Abreu, former team player and teacher of Ramiro de Maeztu.
Joventut, meanwhile, aspire to win in Murcia to maintain their chances of qualifying for the Cup with four days to finish the first round. The seventh position marks the cut of the teams that will be in the competition copera and the verdinegros are eighth (7 and 6).
