Ante Tomic surpassed 2,500 points in Liga Endesa / VICTOR SALGADO - FCB

FC Barcelona earned their tenth victory of the league season after defeating FIATC Joventut 83-74 at the Palau Blaugrana.

Xavi Pascual’s side got off to a slow start and found themselves four points behind (14-18) at the end of the first quarter. That all changed, however, with the introduction of Álex Abrines who scored ten points in five minutes in the second quarter and sparked new life into the team which helped Barça go into the half-time break 42-32 ahead.

The home side’s momentum carried through into the third period. Abrines and Navarro increased the score to 58-41 but from a 17-point lead, Badalona managed to reduce the deficit to just nine by the end of the quarter.

In the final stretch, the visitors’ hopes of a turnaround were thwarted by Ante Tomic who helped Barça secure their tenth win of the season with 14 points, as the match finished 83-74 to the home side.
