WiZink pays tribute to Pablo Laso and Real Madrid beats Bayern

Real Madrid put emotion aside this Thursday and did their job to come out triumphant (88-73) In one of the matches marked in red on the season calendar, the visit of Bayern Munich in the Euroleague and the return of Pablo Laso to the WiZink Center.

The previous one was from Vitoria, his moment, a tribute earned with work and sacrifice during eleven years in the white team in which he became the coach with the most games coached in the history of the entity and in which he achieved 22 official titles.

The stands rallied to him when his name was announced over the public address system, dedicating almost two minutes of applause mixed with chants. Their tears, while standing upright through the emotional downpour, were a thank you without words. There are bonds that are destined to never be broken.

Then, basketball. The coach did not find the respect of the fans with the ball in play from his former players during the start. They received him with a 8-0 coral that turned off Isaac Bonga with five unanswered points. It was a call to action on the visiting side, which from that moment on was activated in attack and defense.

Less fluid in passing than usual, the host had no choice but to attack the rim. And there he ran into another ex-Madridista, Serge Ibaka, who with three blocks led the fortress. In that context, Real Madrid left at the end of the first act with unusual, but negative, success percentages in two-pointers (8 out of 22). Bayern’s team were not better, but their greater ease with three-pointers tipped the balance (19-23, min.10).

It was then the turn of some players who were once illustrious members of Laso’s Praetorian Guard. The Sergios, Rodríguez and Llull, They put the equipment on their backs. And with triples, and even a block from the second, they opened a small gap, never as wide as the greatest advantage (42-37, min.20).

The first half also had a small space for personal milestones in the form of a rebound. Fabien Causeur He reached 300 in his career and Walter Tavares surpassed Paulius Jankunas’ 556 offensive attacks to enter the top-6 in history in this section of the competition.

He missed two of his most decisive men from home this seasonFacundo Campazzo and Mario Hezonja. And they both burst into the restart with force. The electricity of the first and the precision from distance of the second arrived in time to put his team 12 up, the biggest advantage of the game up to that point.

They countered it immediately Carsen Edwardswith five points, and Devin Booker, with a triple. The first attempt at a white escape fell on deaf ears, but not the second. Coinciding with the start of the decisive quarter, the Sergios once again made alchemy to turn more than four minutes of scoring aridity by the Bavarians into gold.

Between the two of them they scored twelve points in a 14-2 partial start, a blow to the chin Too harsh at too relevant a time. The rest was not to squander the prize to give Bayern the same medicine as the rest of the teams that have played this year in the WiZink in the Euroleague, because no one except Barça has taken the return flight losing by less than fourteen.
