Sarunas Jasikevicius' side couldn't stop the Basques and fall to their first defeat of the ACB League season
The team coached by Sarunas Jasikevicius suffered its first defeat of the season in the ACB League, in a match against Baskonia. The first half was even, with a constant exchange of baskets and Barça starting well (2-8, min 2). However, little by little Baskonia got back into the game, with four three-pointers in the first quarter (23-20, min 10).
The script changed at the beginning of the second quarter, with Barça coming on strong (27-33, min 16), although the visitors allowed Ivanovic's men hope again by the break (39-40, min 20).
After half-time Barça couldn't score, and Baskonia took full advantage (51-41, min 24). That difference was definitive, because it was more or less maintained until the end of the match. Barça, despite Davies' 25 points and Heurtel's 15, weren't able to change the dynamics and the match ended 82-71.
