Barça notched up their fifth win of the Liga Endesa season with by seeing off MoraBanc Andorra 82-71. Mirotic (14) and Smits (15) led the scoring.
Neither side started well, but Barça stared to find fluidity in offence as the first period wore on and led 19-12 and lapped up some Andorran errors in the second to go +12 on the quarter hour and stay two figures up for the rest of the half.
They almost went 20 up after 26 minutes and looked to have the game under control, but a 3-10 streak from the visitors suddenly meant there was still work to be done in the final ten minutes.
And the deficit would be reduced to just five before Barça found new gas, and a 7-0 streak was enough to call it a day. Not as simple a win as it may look, but Barça can look back on a great week that’s seen them rack up three wins on the trot.
