Madrid suffers to defeat Lenovo Tenerife and does not clear up doubts – La Provincia

He Real Madrid was imposed on Lenovo Tenerife (80-78) in a crash where he had to pitch in until his last breath to achieve his goal, that of add one more victory that allows them to arrive with an advantage ahead of Unicaja de Málaga to the important duel that will measure both of them the next day.

The match was conditioned by the confidence of both teams. This was minor in the host, weighed down by a slump in play and results after winning the Copa del Rey, always keeping in mind that he had a very positive service record before that achievement. On the other hand, the visitor landed grown after winning in their home stadium in the Champions League against Hapoel Jerusalem, one of the favorites for the continental title.

The event started with a shower of triples, two from Mario Hezonja for Real Madrid and three from Bruno Fitipaldo for Lenovo Tenerife. Between them they scored 17 of the first 26 points seen in the game, when the score was 13-13 and no one was able to open a gap, denied as they were both in the offensive rebound. That did not change until the end of the first quarter (20-19, m.10).

Nor was the contest unbalanced on the return to the floor, with the Canarian side taking the initiative without finishing settling it until five points without a response from Fran Guerra and Aaron Doornekamp gave them the necessary income to go into the break ahead (38-41, min.20). For the rest, everything was relatively even except for the losses, where the Chus Mateo team bled again, although less than other times, with nine at that point.

Dzanan Musa and Walter Tavares then appeared, consistent and persistent in their drives to the basket. and the second, also, voracious on the rebound. Despite this, they failed to knock down Txus Vidorreta’s team, fueled by two consecutive triples from Fitipaldo and Kyle Guy. Yes, Fabien Causeur did, and with five points from his haul he gave Real Madrid six points ahead, which in those circumstances was gold (63-59, min.30).

Beyond entering ahead in the decisive ten minutes, the feeling was that the locals had polished their mistakes along the way. Less generous when it came to delivering balls to an opponent whom they had also doubled in rebounds during the third act, the outcome seemed more inclined towards their side.

But that didn’t mean that they didn’t have to break stones. In fact, Lenovo Tenerife appeared again on the scene with four points from Marcelinho Huertas that tied the score. Two triples from Causeur and Sergio Llull, who also delivered a layup, chiseled an 8-0 run that left that reaction to nothing.

The temptation then arose to think that everything was done. And it was not like that because Kyle Guy flatly refused.. When things were most difficult, the American took the doll out for a walk to create a suspenseful ending. SoJaime Fernández had the victory in his hand when, with five seconds left, he failed in a drive to the basket. Llull, in the other hoop, delivered from the free throw line. Finally, Tim Abromaitis’ point with which Lenovo Tenerife settled their last attack was insufficient.
