Barça Lassa have continued their solid form in basketball’s Liga Endesa. After the dramatic defeat of CSKA in the Euroleague, they have won a lively derby against FIATC Joventut on the back of a fine second half after the first two periods were very closely contested. Doellman’s wonderful spell goes on, with the American contributing 21 points to a win that keeps FCB top of the table (21-2).

The first period saw neither side establish a meaningful lead until the very end, when six consecutive points from Doellman made it 11-15.

The second period saw the sides gridlocked, cancelling out each other’s advances. From 28-28, Barça again reacted well, but still only led by two by the time of the break (33-35).

The third period saw a change of script, with Barça Lassa suddenly much more clinical. Straight threes from Oleson and Vezenkov suddenly had them sixteen in front (38-54), and although Abalde led a great response from Badalona, the home side were unable to get the difference back to single figures, and the period ended 51-64.

Doellman led the final charge, inspiring the team has they killed the game. A fine score from Brad Oleson stretched the lead to 51-70, and right at the end, Eriksson sent home back-to-back 3-pointers to well and truly put the derby to bed (59-85).
