Unicaja Banco Oviedo returned to the warmth of home and did so to face an encounter not without difficulty with the visit of an EasyCharger Palencia who arrived ready to win. A duel in which both teams showed their cards from the beginning, with a constant exchange of blows and alternating dominance of the scoreboard. Thus it was reached the rest time where both technicians looked for changes of strategy in search of a blow of effect in the face of the second half. And it was precisely there, with the beginning of the third quarter, when the locals seemed to want to step in front of the hand of a McDonnell in MVP mode. It seemed that the game could be broken, but the reaction from Palencia, at the hands of an ex of the house like Speight, gave the outside player the possibility of dynamiting the crash. Although, on this occasion, his winning shot did not enter and the game went to extra time. Already in overtime, the locals knew how to exploit this condition to the maximum to find a sixth gear with which to decant the shock in their favor (79-74).
