Group B is red hot. Two days are missing and Five teams remain in the fight for the semifinals. Real Madrid recovered on Monday to stumble against Burgos with their victory against Valencia Basket (95-90) and relies on itself to be in the playoffs for the title. If he wins the two remaining games (MoraBanc this afternoon at 18:30 and Zaragoza, Friday at 21:30), he will secure one of the first two places. It could also be worth it with a win, although in that case you should check the average.
“The defeat against San Pablo put our feet on the ground,” acknowledged Rudy Fernández before the game against MoraBanc. “And the victory against Valencia gives us confidence,” added the Mallorcan forward. The one that comes with a plus is Facundo Campazzo. The base, with little prominence in the first two games, signed his best game since he landed in Europe in 2014. He finished with 29 points and 11 assists for a 42 rating, the highest rating since Sabonis in 1995 (45).
MoraBanc have a minimal option of ringing the bell and going into the semifinals. For this, he must prevail in the two remaining games (Madrid and Burgos) and benefit from the average in a multiple tie with their rivals. Those of Ibon Navarro received an adrenaline kick with their victory against Zaragoza (scored 113 points) and now they dream of everything. “We arrived without pressure and I think we can surprise,” says Guillem Colom. Olumuyiwa, who has been with the team for a week, finished against Casademont with 12 points and 7 rebounds (22 rating) and today he will have to deal with Tavares. The center, with a lot of prominence due to the losses of Diagné and Musli, has gone from LEB Gold to a final phase of the Endesa League in this pandemic.
