Bayern Munich 67-77 Barça: Defence does it in Bavaria
Svetislav Pesic's side go 12-3 in the Euroleague with a solid road display on Friday night
Barça are now 12-3 in the Euroleague thanks to an impressive 67-77 win at Bayern Munich in which defensive intensity was to thank in turn for some top offensive plays. Nikola Mirotic, Adam Hanga (with a personal best of 10 assists), Cory Higgins and Brandon Davies led the march with 10 points each.
Barça started strong but the Germans quickly worked their way back into the game but their scoring dried up in the second period, allowing Barça to go into a promising 22-37 lead. The double figure margin held even when the Catalans themselves got stuck in something of s scoring rut, Bayern cutting the gap down to ten going into the final quarter.
But Barça managed to keep the distance, and with no major change in the scoring, held on for the win.
Bayern Munich: Lo (-), Dedovic (3), Lucic (11), Huestis (5), Monroe (2), Koponen (3), Zipser (19), Nelson (2), Flaccadori (-), Barthel (9), Lessort (3) & Radocevic (19).
