A coral Real Madrid slows down Maccabi’s individual talent

The collective brilliance of Real Madridwith five players over ten points and a total of 26 assists, allowed them to beat a Maccabi de Tel Aviv who bet everything on the voracity and reliability in front of the basket of Wade Baldwin, Bonzie Colson and James Webb III.

The Spanish team received a gracious visitor, since it had not won at the WiZink Center since the 2009-2010 season. Despite this, they did not lack faith against a host who came out with rhythm, eager to leave behind the recent league setback against Dreamland Gran Canaria.

Two consecutive triples from Mario Hezonja and Facundo Campazzo offered a welcome 8-2 as Maccabi dusted itself off, dry beyond the free throw line for the initial three and a half minutes until life was pulverized by Baldwin and later by Colson . Those fireworks faded before the 29 points they received at the end of the first act (29-18, min.10).

This individual contribution and a triple by Sergio Rodríguez shed some light in the midst of a haze of free throws that reduced the frenzy (41-30, min.25)

Faced with the risk of lethargy, an exterior success by Webb III proved the point. The duel then continued until half-time, when Real Madrid reached over fifty points and the Israeli team not much further behind as a result of their good second quarter (52-45, min.20).

Chus Mateo came out of the locker room with a surprise, the presence in the starting quintet of Fabien Causeur, brand new until that moment.

They led that attack this time Webb III y Baldwinwho at that point together with Colson had 53 points out of a total of 64 for the outsiders.

They were briefly joined by Roman Sorkin to insist on the objective and they were close to overtaking the home team. However, two triples from Hezonja and Sergio Rodríguez blocked the escape and made the quarter end without losses, with a spectacular tie at 28 (80-73, min.30).
