Cevery time with more filming, Real Madrid passed over MoraBanc Andorra (58-86). The whites took the victory from a difficult court and against a rival who usually complicates their lives. But everything is easier if Walter Tavares is at his best level. The pivot, already without the Afrobasket hangover, reigned in the Principality with 15 points, seven rebounds, five blocks and a PIR of 26.
Yes indeed, helped him to the throne Thomas Heurtel, who knew how to feed the giant with an astonishing diversity of assists. In Andorra a society was born that promises to give many returns to the madridistas. What Guerschon Yabusele, whose imposing physique makes a difference. Also the multipurpose Adam Hanga. And in the end it was added Nigel Williams-Goss. The signings, most of them full of muscle, are already entering dynamics.
The staging of the Madrid it was extraordinary. Or that of Andorra very lazy. Of the two there was. The whites saw each other 0-10 when 2:39 had elapsed. The entire quintet had scored except for Heurtel. He was running the show and his connection to Tavares shot his team. The giant was imposing and the premises were dwarfed until Hannah appeared, who woke up his family with two triples. Andorra lived from the outside shot. It was enough for him not to detach too much after the first quarter (14-21).
In the second there was minutes of nonsense with both teams racking up losses and some airballs. Diagnos, reborn after his ordeal of injuries, added six points in a row They raised the flag. Answered Alocen with two triples that set a maximum of 12 points (22-34, min 17) who stayed at eight at rest (30-38). Madrid dominated without haste and overwhelmed in the rebound of Poirier’s hand, but losses prevented him from reflecting his superiority with more forcefulness.
Yes he did when leaving the locker room. The whites were unleashed in attack while increasing their defensive intensity and they stopped misplacing balls. The sum of it broke the meeting. Hanga lit the fuse with three triples in a row. After, Heurtel found again Tavares. He fed the pivot, who scored six consecutive points to close a partial of 5-15 that anticipated the settlement.
The French guard and his compatriot Causeur joined the triplet party and the colossal Yabusele also helped with a 2 + 1 that made an ocean of difference between the two sets: 40-62 in the 29th minute. The crash was resolved in the absence of a whole last quarter in which income reached 33 points (53-86). The physicist of Madrid had crushed Andorra.
