The simple announcement of his presence on the floor had served the Palmer Mediterranean Soul to hang the “there are no tickets” in Son Moix, but it was his appearance on the stage that attracted all eyes on Saturday afternoon. Because the Balearic town witnessed one of the season’s greatest individual exhibitions by a player whose pace of play is several gears higher.

Or at least that’s how it was transmitted again by a Marc Gasol star at home to sign a total of 27 points (4/6 TL and 10/15 TC), 9 rebounds, 3 assists, 1 recovery, 1 block and 8 fouls received. Some numbers that were not quite enough for your Basketball Girona could be imposed far from home, but they were well worth the individual recognition that came through their 38 PIR goals.

In this way, Marc will continue to be during the last days of competition the best possible engine for a Bàsquet Girona willing to continue climbing positions.

Anecdotal section:

Reaching 16 games played to remain on the verge of his “first round” in the Competition, the center Marc Gasol (Basketball Girona) This weekend he managed to exceed thirty PIR goals for the sixth time since his arrival in the League. On this occasion, with a PIR of 38 points, which is his second best mark of the course and which earned him his fourth MVP and second consecutive (J.10, J.16, J.28 and J.29). That yes, as it happened in his J.16 duel against Movistar Estudiantes, his numbers were not quite enough on this occasion to be able to prevail at home against Palmer AM Palma.

The ideal quintet of the day:

Until the last match on Monday night, he had to wait for the LEB Gold League to find out what was going to be the ideal five of his day. Because it was in the great match at Riazor where two of its protagonists were able to emerge strongly to successfully complete their team’s match. Specifically, the base Mo Soluade (Leyma Coruña) and the escort Chris-Ebou Ndow (Leyma Coruna) who offered their best version of the season so that the Galician team could prevail in their fief against Movistar Estudiantes. Two players who thus gave shape to an outside game in which they were going to flank one of the sensations of the weekend after their triumph in Son Moix, the escort Elijah Brown (Palmer Mediterranean Soul).

Because the meeting of the Balearic team player was the main reason for the MVP Marc Gasol (Basketball Girona) was left without the victory prize on another great night in a competition whose ideal quintet was closed with the presence of a five Eric Stutz (TAU Castello) decisive in the first meeting of the weekend.
