A huge win for Barça Lassa against fellow Catalan side BAXI Manresa saw every player get points, with Chris Singleton and Kyle Kuric leading the way with 15 each and Aleix Font getting six on his ACB debut.
With Singleton 4/4 in 3-pointers in the first period, Barça powered off the blocks to establish a 32-14 lead in front of a packed Palau.
Heurtel found his A-game in the second period, while Kuris bagged 12 points almost on the trot to set up a scandalous lead of 50-20 by the quarter hour mark. And that was before nine uncontested Barça points made it 59-30 by the interval.
The visitors tried to save some face after the break, but Barça Lassa was as imposing in defence as they were in offence and rather than drop, the difference only got wider - reaching 77-49 going into the final period.
With the ACB Liga lead consolidated and a Euroleague playoff against Anadolu Efes to look forward to, Barça Lassa are flying, and this evening registered their highest tally of the campaign, even bettering the 106 scored against Fuenlabrada.
