ANDhe Gran Canaria left behind the bad streak it had been going through and, after winning the Casademont Zaragoza court, has accumulated three victories in the last four games after having previously added six straight defeats, so it continues to point to the positions of the fight for the title.
The Canarian team managed to defeat a ‘rojillo’ team that once again demonstrated their irregularity although at all times they clung to the game as best they could, despite always being behind in the electronics. Despite this he was never able to finish the reactions that he had initiated on several occasions.
Porfirio Fisac’s team, with their good defensive work, managed to prevent the best version of their rival from coming out and that allowed them to win a victory that was as important as it was hard-fought.
The Aragonese team started the game in an excellent way against a very unsuccessful rival, both in triples and in two-point shots, which, however, stayed in the game thanks to their offensive rebounds that allowed them second shooting options.
Even so, the success of the owners of the land managed to reach an advantage of 8 points (18-10) in minute 7 that the departure of the substitutes in Porfifio Fisac’s team began to reduce to 3 at the end of the first ten minutes. thanks especially to an inspired John Shurna on 3s.
The American’s recital continued in the second quarter and was key to turning the score around. With five triples without fail and a basket of two, the islanders scored a 3-15 run that took the foreign advantage to 9 points (25-34) in the 14th minute, which reached 14 and in the end the team hand cut to ten (36-46) to stay alive.
The Zaragozans returned to the game with a few good minutes after the return from the locker room that left them four points behind (48-52) but the foreign reaction was instantaneous to return the advantage to ten points (58-68) at the end of the fourth.
The drive and the local faith led them to get closer, once again, to two points (76-78) with 2:51 to go but, once again, the Gran Canaria team stood firm to prevent the scoreboard from giving the return and end up achieving an important victory.
