J.10: Movistar Estudiantes does not fail in the overwhelming debut of Marc Gasol (+39)
In the most anticipated match in the history of the competition, Marc Gasol presented himself with stripes before the Fontajau fans to completely change the face of Bàsquet Girona. Because, with a total of 39 valuation goals supported by 19 points and 16 rebounds, the Catalan pivot has been the key for Bàsquet Girona to break its negative streak against Levitec Huesca, who could do little about his drive. For the rest of the day, Unicaja Banco Oviedo and EasyCharger Palencia won at home to follow in the wake of the intractable leader, Movistar Estudiantes. Bamba Fall and Michael Carrera, authors of both winning baskets.
Leading the team from the paint to be the MVP of the match. This is how Marc Gasol made his debut with the Bàsquet Girona shirt, who has been an exceptional protagonist in a victory with which the people of Girona have broken a losing streak that had extended over seven games. An exciting triumph that will go down in the history of the competition for the historic debut of the Sant Boi center with 39 valuation points. For its part, Movistar Estudiantes offered a great image at the WiZink Center against UEMC Real Valladolid and remains the solo leader of the LEB Oro.
Breaking onto the Fontajau court from the starting five and scoring his first points really fast, Marc Gasol was quick to remind all of the national basketball that his arrival in Girona is by no means a golden retirement. A player who did not take long to put the public in his pocket, being a real headache for a Levitec Huesca that was totally overcome during the first quarter (24-9). Thus, the Girona people were able to impose their style of play against an opponent with serious problems when stopping the offensive impulses of the Catalans. Because both Albert Sàbat and Karamo Jawara were able to find the Huesca rim to reach the break at maximum rents (55-28). Because not only Marc Gasol fed a Girona Basketball who knew how to find a good reference in the recoveries of Gerard Sevillano after the break or in the physical superiority of Jawara under the hoops. In this way, the differences did not stop growing in favor of a team that liked each other on the floor and that resorted for the last time to a Marc Gasol who culminated his 39 valuation goals with a 2 + 1. Thus, Marc signed the dream debut and Bàsquet Girona broke a negative streak of seven games without winning (89-47).
If Bàsquet Girona leaves behind its bad streak of results, in the case of Movistar Estudiantes this, although positive, is prolonged. The schoolboys added their fifth consecutive victory after signing an excellent second half in which they ended the resistance of a UEMC Real Valladolid that has already accumulated three days without knowing the victory. From the group of immediate pursuers of Movistar Estudiantes, a Covirán Granada fell on his visit to Melilla before a Sport Capital that certifies its progression and already links three games won in a row.
The squad of pursuers is now made up of a Unicaja Banco Oviedo that beat Acunsa Gipuzkoa in Pumarín thanks to an outstanding second half. The EasyCharger Palencia also added the eighth after getting rid of the Palmer Alma Mediterrànea Palma with a winning basket in the last second of Bamba Fall. Another great game that was resolved in the last seconds was the one played in Lleida. There it was Michael Carrera who put the icing on his outstanding performance to give victory to an ICG Força Lleida that happens to occupy the fifth position after defeating in extremis his immediate pursuer, Leyma Coruña.
