Kyle Guy crushes Madrid with 30 points and eight triples: 83-93 | Sports

Madrid was warned, but even so they could not stop a gale named Kyle Guy. Joventut’s American guard crushed the whites with 30 points (24 of them in the second half) and eight three-pointers in the first match of the ACB semifinals (83-93), handed La Penya victory on visiting territory and signed the first white defeat after 12 consecutive wins. This Thursday, the second appointment also at the Palace.

In that cross between Guy and Musa, the Bosnian struck first. With the white defense on top of the ball, the penetrations of Hanga and the Yabusele and Tavares towers marking territory, Madrid accelerated (6-0, 13-3). But La Penya showed why they eliminated Baskonia in the quarterfinals: game and character. Joel Parra took a step forward and Carles Durán’s team began to run, true to his agile style, even though the European champions were up against them (22-18).

Another man from the house, Busquets, encouraged Joventut with his triples while Tomic made his way under the area. Madrid missed one triple after another (14 errors out of 17 attempts in the first half, 24 errors out of 32 at the end) and resisted with Hezonja, effective under his board (29-27). La Penya kept her booklet. It was a team beyond Guy although many balls went through his golden boy. The one from the last possession of the second quarter, of course, a triple brand of the house after going around the court to stamp the 39-42.

It was the spark that started a fire at WiZink. Guy hit triples at will, creating space, scaring the defender on duty (47-59). Madrid could not find a way to stop him and got stuck in attack, the victim of a not very choral game. Chus Mateo’s team was looking for Tavares’ float and Musa’s inspiration, and so they rowed until they were equal to 73. But the night belonged to Gunner Guy. He played it and attracted rivals to connect Feliz. Triple by triple, the boy from Indiana swept Madrid.
