Víctor Sada vs Valencia Basket

Víctor Sada proved that he’s one of the most on-form players in the Barça Regal squad in yesterday’s match against Valencia Basket. In fact, he’s the engine of this team both on offence and defence. Yesterday’s victory saw Barça Regal maintain their position at the top of the table five days after the team qualified for the Final Four in Istanbul.

Xavi Pascual didn’t hesitate when asked to define Sada’s role in the team: “he’s a silent leader on the court ... he’s been a key player and he changed the match [against Valencia] when he came off the bench - he made everyone work harder. He played with a lot of confidence .”

Sada’s numbers

The man from Badalona managed to secure his highest point tally of the season yesterday with 12 points, he finished with an overall value of +15 in the game against Los Ché that finished 76-72. However, beyond his points, his baskets came at the most decisive times of the match, when the team needed them the most. His last three points came when Valencia were within two points of the lead with three minutes left to play; his final free throw secured the win for Barça. Sada also was key on defence, he carried the team, especially, in the second quarter.

Joe Ingles, in this week's best starting five of the ACB

Ingles finished with an overall value of +15 after scoring six points, five rebounds, six assists, forcing two turnovers and one block.
