ANDl Barça, in their second friendly match of the preseason, destroyed Limoges with three pointers (15 of 27), which they beat by a resounding 83-47 in a friendly match played in Andorra, which represents the team’s second victory in the preseason. Catalan and in which Argentine guard Nico Laprovittola made his debut.
‘Saras’ Jasikevicius decided to give the alternative as soon as the second pre-season friendly began to the former Real Madrid player. Barça marked the territory from the good start with an initial 12-2 with three triples from three different players: Cory Higgins, Nico Laprovittola and Brandon Davies.
Those of Massimo Cancellieri reacted with the entry of Gerry Blakes until 12 to 8. The Blaugrana did not leave room for surprises and ended the first quarter with a favorable 24 to 12 with a very solid match in all aspects against a rival who already he played his first friendly against MoraBanc on Sunday.
In the second quarter, the defense of the Blaugranas suffocated a very unsuccessful Limoges and without ideas in attack. The partial went from 19 to 9 and Jasikevicius opted to enter Sergi Martínez and Badji. The talent of the Catalans left the French unanswered and only Blakes was successful with 7 points with 2 of 2 in shots of 2 and one of one in triples. On the part of Barça, the game was very choral and Mirotic’s 7 points stood out.
A 16-4 run marked the third quarter. The Catalan team left Limoges without any option from the 6.75 line with two triples in a row by Mirotic and three also in a row by Abrines to leave 59-25 (+34) four minutes before the end of the third quarter.
The only points of the French until that moment were the Cuban center Grismay Paumier. A partial from 0 to 10 by Limoges provoked Jasikevicius’ anger, but the third act ended with a triple by Sergi Martínez on the horn (62 to 35). Barça only scored from the 6.75 line and a free kick from Davies.
In the last act, the Lithuanian Barça coach finished the match with Agustín Ubal, Badji, Bonilla, Caicedo and Jokubaitis. The oldest player on the court was only 20 years old. In addition, the success also continued from the 6.75 line where 10 Barça players scored one or more than a triple. The best of the Catalans was Nikola Mirotic with 13 points.
