Marcelinho Huertas impressed in Sunday's derby in Badalona / MIGUEL RUIZ-FCB

FIATC Joventut (12+26+38+61): Mallet (12), Ventura (6), Kirskay (2), Suton (9), Savané (2) –starting five–, Hannah (9), Vidal (-), Barrera (6), Suárez (9), Llovet (5) & Miralles (1).

FC Barcelona (19+45+70+99): Satoransky (6), Thomas (9), Hezonja (16), Doellman (16), Tomic (15) –starting five–, Huertas (4), Oleson (5), Abrines (11), Nachbar (5), Pleiss (7) & Jackson (5).


 

Barça led the game all the way and ended up winning by a colossal 38 points against their local rivals, and go 15-6 in the league, with the Copa del Rey on the horizon.

Following an even first few minutes, the entrance of Marcelinho started the Barça storm, and the first period ended with the visitors well in command at 12-19, with Joventut only 5/13 from 2-point attempts and struggling with the threes as well.

Tomic and Doellman led the way in the second period, the Croat getting 8 points and 8 rebounds while Doellman took his tally up to 11. A 0-13 streak boosted the lead to 17-38 and the half ended 26-45.

In the third period, Barça refused to ease off and were soon leading by 30, scoring seven to no reply in the opening three minutes. Xavi Pascual could afford to start rotating his bench, although he didn’t use Juan Carlos Navarro, who it would seem he is reserving for the cup on Thursday.

Despite the changes, Barça still dominated and at one point led by 40, with the game eventually ending with one of the biggest point differences in derby history: 61-99.
