FC Barcelona won for the fourth time in four tries in the Liga ACB this season, putting them in first place after a convincing victory over Gipuzkoa Basket at the Palau Blaugrana on Sunday afternoon.

Justin Doellman led the way for the Catalans, scoring a game-high 19 points on 8 of 11 shooting from the field including 3 of 4 from beyind the three-point line. Thomas Satoransky chipped in with 11 points and 5 assists and Àlex Abrines added 10 points. Barça as a team shot 62% from the field including over half of their attempts from three-point territory, making 15 of 29 from downtown.

Barcelona-native Jordi Grimau scored 14 points to lead Gipuzkoa Basket.

Shane Lawal had four of Barça's 11 slam dunks on the afternoon, which left them just one shy of the all-time ACB record, which was set by FC Barcelona themselves back in the 2001/01 season. That day a guy named Pau Gasol — ever heard of him? — led Barça with six dunks.
