There were only two matches at stake on Tuesday night, but both met the demands of some fans who enjoyed what they saw on the floor. Especially in the Palacio de los Deportes in the Nasrid capital where Covirán Granada knew how to impose its greater depth as a bench to disarm, with the passing of the minutes, a Juatisti ISB that he had started commanding. But it was difficult for Iñaki Jiménez’s men to endure the physical demands of a Covirán Granada that began to grow with each rotation and that knew how to find the best possible incentive in each attack in its bench men. Thus, Pablo Pin’s team was able to close a match without difficulties in which Niang and David Iriarte were able to make a difference (84-68).
In the Balearic Islands, the victory went to the visiting team’s locker with the triumph of CB Almansa with Afanion against a Palmer Alma Mediterránea who tried with all his might to end up dying once more on the shore. Because Pavelka’s debut was not enough against an opponent who knew how to impose the rhythm of the game from the second quarter, exploiting the greater freshness of his men and, above all, the winning mentality generated in their last match in each. A determining factor for Rubén Perelló’s men to be able to prevail for the second consecutive day (82-94).
Already on Wednesday night, the solitary duel of Multiusos ended up leaving the victory at home for a Cáceres P. Humanidad who was really solid in the hottest moments of the game. Because Roberto Blanco’s men were able to take advantage of the inertia of a good first quarter to respond to each and every one of the attacks from a TAU Castelló in which Edwards was flying in MVP mode. But it was the last period that decided the final sign of a match with a more successful Extremadura team against a Castellón squad that did not find fortune in the face of the basket (77-68).
