FC Barcelona Lassa shot the lights out on Sunday en route to a nine-point road victory at Zaragoza in the Spanish Community of Aragon that puts them into first place in the ACB Liga, Spain's top flight. 

After Valencia lost to Real Madrid, all Barça needed was a triumph to slide into the top position. Nevertheless, it was a win they had to work hard for.

Precision shooting from the perimeter and clutch second-half plays by shooting guard Juan Carlos Navarro and center Ante Tomic helped stem Zaragoza's momentum, which had trimmed 15 points off Barça's lead in the fourth quarter.

Justin Doellman led the way for FC Barcelona with 14 points while Navarro and Tomic chipped in with 11 each.

The win is FC Barcelona's 19th in their last 21 games in the Spanish League.
