Barça 86-57 UCAM Murcia: Win to end the regular season

Barça complete the regular season fixtures in the best possible way, making it 29 wins in 34 games

After the EuroLeague disappointment, it was time to return home and get back on the winning trail with the play-offs on the horizon. Barça did exactly that, defeating UCAM Murcia 86-57 in the final game of the Liga regular season, the fourth time in history that the Palau Blaugrana has seen only home wins during the same league season.

Catalans in control

Mindful of the task ahead, the players came out on fire in the Palau Blaugrana, the three point specialists and Vesely setting the tone from the off. The centre had already scored 10 points by the end of the first quarter to help the team to an eight point lead (23-15, min. 10).

The control continued in the second. Kuric and Sanli picking up the scoring baton, including a three-pointer to end the second with the lead extended to +15 (41-26).

Regular season finishes with a flourish

The team from Murcia may have needed a win to qualify for the play-offs, but they never really got the chance to impose themselves on the game. Sanli and a superb Mirotic continuing the positive vibe to help maintain the lead. End of the third quarter 62-44.

The final period saw somewhat of an exhibition by Saras Jasikevicius' side, Sanli and Nnaji both with big plays. UCAM Murcia saw the game was up and Barça ran out comfortable winners with the final score 86-57.

Next up for Barça, the Liga play-offs. Jasikevicius' men will have to defeat three teams to be crowned champions, with Valencia their first opponent at the Palau Blaugrana on Monday 29 May at 9pm CEST.
