Real Madrid suffered in the Euroleague to get the 95-91 victory, against Valencia with options until the last second, in which Argentine Gabriel Deck was decisive in coming to the rescue of his team.
Valencia had a better staging, while Real Madrid took 5.30 minutes to equalize, 12-12, the rival’s small advantages. Jonah Radebaugh was the author of the first 5 points of his team and then they faded away.
Mario Hezonja, despite his lack of luck in front of the hoop, was the most successful along with Petr Cornelie, while neither Walter Tavares nor Vincent Poirir had much significance under the hoops.
The 24-20 with which the first quarter ended, reflected the game of both with defenses not too overwhelming.
In the second act, Valencia remained on the scoreboard thanks to Jasiel Rivero. In fact, in the first 4.30 minutes the result was Real Madrid 9, Jasiel Rivero 11. The Cuban scored all the points for his team up to that moment.
NeverthelessReal Madrid moved the ball well in attack and that began to show on the scoreboard, 45-35 (min.17.40). Two triples by Rudy Fernández and another by Cornelie gave the team the necessary calm.
The advantage reached 12 points, 47-35, although Valencia with good minutes from Jared Harper managed to close the gap until the 49-40 with which the teams reached the locker room.
Madrid came out unsmart again and in 30 seconds lost more than half of their income, 49-45. Bojan Dubljevic, little transcendent in the first minutes, began to show his leadership between the ‘che’ and Xabi López-Aróstegui put the Levantines ahead, 53-55 (min.23.30) with a triple and additional.
It took Madrid to reactperhaps due to the accumulated fatigue in the players’ legs, and his attempt to climb a step in defense did not have the expected returns, but he improved in attack, including a three-pointer from Sergio Rodríguez.
The fourth personal of Tavares, 64-62 (m.27.45) increased the uncertainty after the 71-65 with which the third quarter ended. And also the 5 of 8 triples scored by Valencia in this period.
Again Valencia cut back in the early stages of the last quarter, 75-72 (m.33) and It was Gabriel Deck who, with offensive rebounds and points, kept Real Madrid on the scoreboard, 81-72 (m.35).
Two triples, from Webb and Jones, once again brought Valencia closer to victory, 83-82, and to match to a new toss. With 90-86 the last 69 seconds were tackled and this time Madrid did not fail, although they were scared because with 15.4 seconds to go the score was 93-91.
in the end v95-91 victory, the fourth of four games over Valencia.
