Incomplete comeback in Bilbao (83-79)


Valencia Basket could not finish a comeback that led the taronja squad to have options in a tight final in a game where were losing by 21 points in the beginning of the second half and ended up losing on the court of the RETAbet Bilbao Basket by 83-79. After a first half in which it was overwhelmed by the local accuracy, the Taronja team improved its defensive performance in the second half and with a 0-12 run at the start of the last quarter approached to two points. But although Valencia Basket had attacks to flip the scoreboard, didn’t take advantage of them and two final triples of the Basque team made the victory stay in Miribilla. Motum with 13 points and 7 rebounds and Guillem Vives, with 15 points, were the most prominent.
