Winger Yan Djalo was also on an inspired night and commanded actions in the first two quarters, when he scored 12 of the 53 points converted by the blue and black team until the game break. One of the plays carried out by the winger represented the spirit that Pinheiros entered the court: When the athlete recovered the ball and, lying on the ground, continued the play passing the ball to Ruivo, who saw Buffat in a good position to convert two more points for Pines team.
“That was the spirit of today’s game, a lot of race and vibration. We are coming from defeats for teams that are higher in the table, however, we are not shaken and we continue playing strong and that way we can go far” , highlighted Djalo, who was the best scorer of the team with 19 points at the end of the match.
The partial of the first quarter was 27×17 for Pinheiros; 53×30 at halftime. The third quarter ended 80×55 and 94a 83 at the end of the game.
Winger Rafael Munford scored another double-double in the game (11 points and 12 rebounds) and attributed the good moment he is experiencing to the team’s work. “It’s the fruit of collective work, without my teammates I wouldn’t be in this good phase and the team is trusting me. Experience also makes a difference” , he highlighted. Ruivo had 16 points and was the team leader in assists with six.
Pinheiros now changes the focus of the NBB and turns its attention to the “Super 8”, for the match against Sao Paulo at Ginasio do Morumbi next Saturday, the 21st at 11am.
