The point guard Thomas Heurtel was, again, without playing and Jasikevicius argued that it was a tactical decision: “Our lost games occur because we do not defend. This was the idea. In the last minutes I didn’t want to take him out because he was cold and they were not very important minutes ”.

For his part, Adam Hanga defined the match “as a match of streaks. We started by scoring a lot of points but our defense in the first half didn’t work well. In the second half I think we did a better job at the back and thus we achieved a well deserved victory. We are happy with the victory but we have to think about Maccabi, a team that is playing very well ”.

This Wednesday it was demonstrated how important it is to start the game well. “It is mathematical. When we do it like this, the game turns out much better. We have talked a lot about this that we have to start the games better, more toned in defense. Now it’s time to think about the next duel “

Jasikevicius: "I don’t know how the Khimki can go last"


Barça coach Sarunas jasikevicius -in statements to the club’s media- warned about Khimki’s potential despite arriving at the Palau as a ‘red lantern’ of the Euroleague. "It is a rival that has one of the most powerful squads in Europe and I don’t know why it is last .. It is true that at the beginning of the season they had bad luck with the coronavirus since the first games had to be played without five or six players from the first template. Then they got into a negative dynamic, but wow. The reality is that he has four or five NBA players, a guy" (Shved) "that he can win a game on his own, and they can go to voenta or a hundred points against anyone. It is, in short, a first-rate opponent with one of the most powerful attacks in the Euroleague. insurance",

Barça will try to take advantage of the inertia of playing at home to continue adding triumphs, although Saras does not give too much importance to that."The important thing is to win whether at home or away. The most important thing is to focus on the next meeting. The truth is that we have no choice but to go game by game because we don’t have time to train or to improve some things that we need to improve. But hey. This is the 2020-21 season and you have to endure",

On his Barça, the Lithuanian coach. "We have won two very difficult games last week suffering and sometimes this is very good. On Monday we gave the boys rest. Today is a new day, tomorrow is a new day and you have to start from scratch as always".

Pierre Oriola

For the azulgrana captain "We face a new Euroleague game and we expect another difficult game against a team with a lot of offensive quality. Shved, Jerebko, Monroe, Timma, McCollum. They have a lot of players with a lot of points in their hands. An opponent that is last in the standings, something that I think does not do justice to what they are individually, player by player. Therefore I expect a complicated, difficult opponent that has many weapons offensively".

The definition of a ‘cheat match’ fits Oriola. "Sometimes the positions in the classification are that and more with games that were postponed, with teams with injuries, with problems with COVID. That’s why in the end I think that positions don’t count for much and, I repeat, they are a very good offensive promo code 131% for new customers 1xbet team. I’m sure he will come here to the Palau to win and try to change his dynamics and climb the ranks".

Barça faces a ‘trap’ match against Khimki

A confirmation and an unknown in the direction of Barça’s game

And how does Oriola see his Barça? Well. If it is true that we had bad games last week like Olympiacos, but we recovered with a great last quarter against Milan and we won an important game to stay on top. The same happened before the Obradoiro. The team is fine. Small details are what often make the differences and that is what sometimes happens to us and that we have to finish polishing. 

FC Barcelona has fallen fairly this Tuesday at the Palau against Valencia Basket (90-100) in an early match on matchday 17 of the Endesa League.

Sarunas Jasikevicius

After losing their last Euroleague match on the ASVEL court by 80-68, the Barça team proved unable to stop a rival in a state of grace who at the end of the first quarter was already winning 22-32.

And Sarunas Jasikevicius has been very critical of his players, whom he has already accused of being "less motivated than ASVEL" in the aforementioned KO in Gallic lands.

"It has been a hard night for us. Not the reaction we expected after losing the last Euroleague game"snapped the Lithuanian after the game.

"It is clear that we have not been able to mentalize ourselves against a team that plays very good basketball, especially in attack"Saras continued quite annoyed.

"We have always been one step behind, we did not deserve to win and what we have to do is change the dynamics very quickly"added the Barça manager.

Dead time

One of the images of the match occurred early in the fourth quarter, when Jasikevicius called a time-out, left the ‘huddle’ and did not say a single word in that minute.

"I take responsibility for what happens with the team, but sometimes one thing is said and we do the opposite", he complained to the Movistar + microphones.

"I expected a reaction after losing in Lyon and in the first quarter they scored 32 points for us … We have lived too well for a long time and now that takes its toll", concluded a Saras who will return to Kaunas on Friday.

Hanga, resigned

Although he was one of the few who performed at a good level in defense and attack, Adam Hanga acknowledged that they had not made merits to win.

"It is difficult to assess a game in which our rival has always dominated us. Now we have to think about the last two games and say that we are on a losing streak"the Hungarian reflected.

"We know that this month is very complicated and now to react we have to turn this dynamic into which we have entered since the match against ASVEL", continued the versatile Blaugrana player.

Barça already knows which is the path against Valencia

Already thinking about Friday’s visit to Zalgiris, Hanga pointed out that it will be "complicated, because we will be playing against a team that has been losing in the Euroleague lately and is sure to be very excited about winning us. We lost a very tough game and we are going to try to win the next one".

Barça coach Sarunas Jasikevicius, in a statement to the club’s media, stated in the previous match against Armani that: "we expect a very good Milan as it has been in the last five or six games. At the beginning they had problems due to the coronavirua but now they are playing a very high level basketball. They are also very successful in the last games. It is a super experienced team, with many shooters and very well trained".

To face this rival, one of the keys for Barça will be the mentality. with which to face the duel. "Yes. As far as we are concerned it is always a question of mentality. We have to be psyched from minute one. As we have already seen, the first quarter is very important to us. Then, if things do not go well, that rivals also influence, we have to be consistent and insist, insist and insist and break the games. As I have said before, the key is in our mentality and in our defense".

Is there a ‘Heurtel case’ at Barça?

Jasikevicius: "We cannot allow them to score 90 or 100 points"

The million dollar question How do you see the team after the loss to Olympiacos."We have seen the video of the game and everyone obviously understands what happened. We cannot play like this, especially at the beginning, and we must correct this". Word of Jasikevicius. Hopefully your players will apply the tale.

Jack Sock is the eighth man at the Nitto ATP Finals in London. The American needed the title of the Masters 1000 of Paris-Bercy to add the necessary points to surpass Pablo Carreño in the classification of the best of the season and he did not fail: he defeated Serbian Filip Krajinovic 5-7, 6-4 and 6 -1 in one hour and 58 minutes. Victory in Paris, ticket to London.

But it wasn’t easy for Sock. Krajinovic seemed determined to follow the tonic of the tournament from its opening day, in which, time and again, the predictions flew through the air. That a tennis player who has only played two ATP Tour tournaments this 2017 and who comes from the previous phase would lift the trophy seemed impossible. And in the end it was. Logic prevailed and the favorite, Sock, took the first Masters 1000 of his career.

A stunning run from @JackSock concludes with his first Masters 1000 title and a spot in the Top 10. &# 128079;&# 128170; #RolexPMasters

Impressive the rise of the American, who had starred in a season of the most irregular, this last week: he arrived in Paris occupying the 24th position of the Race, he was the one who had the worst to access the tournament of ‘teachers’. 

He did not depend on himself but the eliminations of Carreño, Sam Querrey, Kevin Anderson, Roberto Bautista, Lucas Pouille, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, Juan Martín del Potro and John Isner left him as the only candidate for a prized eighth place in the O2 of London. And it did not fail.

American tennis returns to the ATP Finals six years later.
