Serious, steady basketball sees of a subborn Galician outfit as the Catalans go 3-0 in the Liga Endesa
Barça might have led Río Breogán from start to finish in this game, but nothing was decided until the very final minutes. Mirotic impressed as he led the scoring with 22 points.
The newly promoted Galicians also had a 100 per cent record going into this one, and although Barça rapidly moved into an 8-point lead, they were unable to build upon it, and instead the visitors very, very slowly cut down the difference to the extent that there was just one point in it going into the final period.
Cory Higgins appeared at just the right moment, and his five quick points re-established the six-point lead.
Nikola Mirotic, MVP of the previous round of games, was also on solid form, his 11/14 in free throws making a vital contribution.
Barça made sure that there were no late surprises and go 3-0 in the Liga Endesa as attention now switches back to Europe and Alba Berlin at the Palau Blaugrana on October 1
