Barça have won the derby with Badalona (62-80), in game where they started well and eventually got the job done in the third period. Mirotic led the scoring with 21 on the night that Victor Claver returned from a five-month absence.
Once Barça had control of the rebound, their counter attacks were lethal, and it was mainly thanks to Mirotic, with 13 points, that they won the first period +11.
The second period was just as one-sided, and Barça had made it to +18 by one stage but the home side managed to get some back in time for the interval.
But Badalona started the second half weakly, allowing Barça to make the most of so many lost balls to go +20. The final period saw something of a revival from Joventut, but by this stage it was too late for any surprises and Barça eventually won it by +28.
