Gran Canaria 64-82 Barça: Solid in offence and defence
A brilliant 3-point conversion rate and impeccable defending are the keys to the second win in two Liga Endesa games
A convincing win for Barça at Gran Canaria in week two of the Liga Endesa saw the team stork off the blocks early on and do a wonderful job of capitalising on 3-pointers (6/7 in the first period). From then on, it was over to the defence to keep the lead alive, which did of fine job of keeping the Gran Canaria revival in check.
With Mirotic setting a personal best with 16 rebounds, Barça were strong all round in the second half, and not only defended but even built on their lead, eventually taking it by a solid 18 points.
Gran Canaria: I. Diop (-), Brussino (6), López (2), Pustovyi (11), Ennis (13), Serrano (-), Kramer (7), Salvó (8), Slaughter (10), Shurna (-), K. Diop (3) & Stevic (4).
