ANDl Lenovo Tenerife, with its away victory over Casademont Zaragoza, made life difficult for an Aragonese team that sees the relegation zone getting closer and closer, and at the same time their coach, Jaume Ponsarnau, who could also be left on the rope loose defeat.
Txus Vidorreta’s team added their fifth consecutive victory led by the lethal couple Marcelinho-Shermadini, especially after the break, against an Aragonese team that once again gave a version that was not enough against the entity of the Tenerife team and that leaves the hands looking at the abyss of the LEB League.
Tenerife’s triumph, achieved with sufficiency and without excessive problems, allows them to remain firm in the fight for the privileged positions of the classification.
The first quarter was marked by the many errors in the shots of both teams that led to a very short quarter (12-11) and that prevented either of them from being able to take off on the scoreboard.
In the second, however, the Canarian team, led by their two point guards, Marcelinho Huertas (who finished with 20 points and a PIR of 19) and Bruno Fitipaldo, began to slowly but gradually go away.
Both playmakers were able to create leads off the screen and score without being stopped by their defenders.
In these ten minutes the Brazilian scored 9 points and the Uruguayan 8, which was practically half of those achieved by his team.
This, together with the insular rebounding power that doubled the Aragonese at that time (11 for 22) ended because, without making too much noise, Txus Vidorreta’s team achieved the highest profit in their favor by reaching the edge of the break, eleven points.
The foreign superiority was falling under its own weight and, with a great Shermadini in the third quarter, who finished with 22 points and a PIR of 36, and a very successful start to the last quarter, the advantage skyrocketed to 17 points, which were enough to end up taking a comfortable victory because the hand team was unable to react.
