The blaugranes come out on top in an excellent performance, dominating from start to finish in Germany
A clear victory based on intensity. Barça overwhelmed Alba Berlin 103-67 in Germany in a game dominated from start to finish by Jasikevicius' side. Intensity and efficiency were the keys for the visitors with Mirotic top scorer with 18 points and Calathes equalling a club record with 12 assists, a mark also held by his team Huertel set in 2018.
On the money
The blaugranes started the game with intensity and after an early period of exchanges of baskets Jasikevicius' team started to pull away thanks to Abrines' shooting and some excellent defensive work. After 10 minutes they had a healthy 30-18 lead.
Moving the ball quickly, Barça continued to extend their lead in the first half and a three pointer from Higgins on the buzzer saw them go in at the break with a 56-36 lead.
Sealing the win
In the second half the blaugranes not only maintained the level of the opening period but lifted their offensive game to reach a century of points and record a sixth win in seven matches in the Euroleague.
