ANDhe Joventut de Badalona defeated MoraBanc Andorra 99-92 and maintains its chances of finishing sixth, always at the expense of what Hereda San Pablo Burgos does in the two remaining games.

The green and black won with a choral performance in which Brodziansky and Ventura stood out, against a rival who showed character when, after losing by twenty-three points (88-65, min. 33), they got to five (97-92 ) with half a minute to go.

The green and black had a better staging with a partial of 11-3 (min. 5) that allowed them to dominate the scoreboard at all times, reaching a maximum difference of fourteen points (44-30, min. 19) after a triple from Pau Ribas.

With more rhythm than the Andorran and superiors in the inside game, Penya surpassed ten points from Brodziansky and Tomic in the second period (30-18 min. 14).

Oriol Paulí and Clevin Hannah contained the local streak with their points (35-27, min. 17), but with the rebound dominated in both rings, Penya gave another acceleration with Dawson and Ribas to maintain the eight points difference at halftime ( 44-36).

Tomic, with points and assists, and Ribas, with two triples, launched La Penya again in the third quarter (65-53, min. 26), while MoraBanc Andorra replied with the triples of Sy, Senglin and Jelinek, although that was not enough for him to get closer to the locals, who finished the fourth eight up (77-65).

Joventut seemed to end the game with an 11-0 run at the start of the last quarter that led to their maximum difference (88-65, min. 33), but was wrong to end the game early.

The Andorran team played a sensational last seven minutes and, led by Sergi García and Oriol Pauli, they endorsed Penya a 9-27 partial that put them 97-92 half a minute from the end after two triples by Sergi García, who had a third to bring your team closer and you failed.
