Kyle Guy warned at the end of the game that “I’ve spent my whole life preparing for these types of games both in the University, in the NBA and now here. I feel confident and I just want to help my teammates. It’s my job.” The 30 points of the American dazzled a Wizink Center that applauded sportingly the exhibition of the player from La Penya, who gave the triumph deservedly to his (83-93).
Defense of the Rock
Madrid came out to mark ground (13-3) thanks to their intensity, but from there they went to (17-16) through the defense of La Penya, who also closed their rebound well. Added everything to a speed in the deployment that punished the laziness of a slow Madrid behind. Durán was betting on always keeping two highs to counter Tavares, with Brodziansky, Birgander, Ellenson and Tomic wearing down the white giant, who had no relief on the bench due to Poirier’s injury. Chus Mateo rotated to the complement of the Cape Verdean, with Yabusele, Hezonja and even Randolph to hold the advantage in the paint (22-18) at the end of the first quarter.
In the second, eight points from Pep Busquets kept Joventut in the game when Guy only added a triple. But the mistakes in triples released by the whites allowed the green and black to add a partial of (4-11) that put them ahead (32-33). Hanga held Madrid with 11 points, the same as Tomic accumulated in Jokic mode, assisting and scoring. The break was reached with a stratospheric triple by Guy on the horn that left the score (39-42). He defended and ran the Penya better.
The third quarter continued on the same path with a Guy warming up forcing Mateo to look for solutions. Durán’s board shone with Tomic and Guy having fun and stretching the score (47-59). Accumulated at the end of the quarter the youth 12 of 19 triples, but this Madrid must never be considered lost and the awakening of Chacho and Musa allowed them to endorse a run of (10-4) and finish the third period (64-67), despite Guy’s 19 points and Tomic’s 16.
Guy and Felix give the lace
In the last quarter Guy and Tomic began sharing the decisions in attack, with the surprise factor of Andrés Félix, very incisive. Chus Mateo clung to the offensive power of his external arsenal, with Chacho, Llull and Musa on the field. La Penya (75-83) dominated the shooting three minutes from the end. It was a miracle before a TEAM with capital letters, this hard-working and cheeky Joventut. But eight final points from Guy, to finish with 30 and eight triples, closed the black-green victory. Barcelona and Unicaja come into action today.
