Barcelona basically led the entire match. At halftime, she had a 12-point lead, which she then further highlighted in the third quarter, which she dominated by 26:14.
“In the second quarter, we built up a lead, which we then built on. We played with a lot of tempo and even though we didn’t get that many points, I was satisfied with our fast game,” said Satoranský in an interview with Euroleague TV. “We took care of the rebound and we borrowed the ball well. As we finished the second quarter, we started the third quarter and that was the reason why we built up to a twenty-five-point lead,” said the Czech representative.
Barcelona won their sixth game of the season at home. “Here at the Palau Blaugrana, there is always a great atmosphere that gives us extra energy. Especially in the Euroleague. I believe that we will continue the winning streak,” said Satoranský.
