After the resounding triumph in the first semis match, the Barça was surprised last night by a Lenovo
Tenerife renewed and with a sensational game plan. Those in charge of carrying it out were Marcelinho
Orchards Y Giorgi
The duo of the Canarian team has been one of the most effective in our basketball but his performance yesterday was simply imperial. The Barça He did not find a response at any time to the attacks from Tenerife, who, led by these two cracks, managed to force the third game.
Orchards, an old acquaintance of the Blaugrana parish, earned the praise both from his coach, Txus
Vidorreta, as of the rival technician, Saras
Jasikevicius. Both highlighted at the end of the meeting the work of the Latin American base, who controlled the game at will.
The final stat reflects the impact of Huertas but falls short to show his dominance of the game last night in Tenerife. The base ended with 26 points, 4 rebounds and 11 rebounds for a PIR of 31, a double-double at the height of the best basketball in the world.
Nor was his companion in adventures short. Shermadini demonstrated once again why he is the most valued player of this season in the Endesa League and how from a tactical concept as simple as the pick-and-roll, he and Huertas unleash chaos.
The Georgian ended the night with 21 points, 10 rebounds, four of them offensive, and a PIR of 37. He received six personal fouls, accumulated a differential of +18 on court and he just missed two of his ten shots to the basket. It was, simply, unstoppable for the blaugrana.
Between both added 68 valuation, an absurd figure in full playoff of the Endesa League and above all a Barça that has just played the final of the Euroleague against Efes and has been one of the best teams on the continent all year.
The Palau will witness the third meeting between the two teams, a life or death duel that will seal the ticket of one of the two teams to the final of the ACB and will put an end to the season of the other. Will Huertas and Shermadini be able to strike again?
