Barcelona and Girona have traveled to Lleida to play the second semi-final of the Catalan League, which in this edition traveled to the capital of Lleida to find out the winner of the season’s first title. Barca got a win 104-92. The most important thing was to see what the new Barca would be like.
It’s early and only the first game with the full squad, but everything seems to indicate that Grimau’s Barca will be very different from Saras’. The main incentive of the game was to see what differences there were with the Lithuanian and one thing seems clear: more freedom, less discipline.
These premises are perfect for players like Nico Laprovittola (20 points), the best for the Catalans today, with good flashes of quality from Jabari Parker (10 points). Darío Brizuela (4 points), Willy Hernangómez (6 points) and Joel Parra (7 points) played their first minutes as Barca players in a game that was not easy for Barca. Despite a good start to the game, the second quarter was clearly from Girona, with the energy of Yves Pons (10 points) and the quality of Quino Colom putting fear into Barça’s body.
But the 17-27 score in the second quarter was counteracted by the 31-17 score in the third quarter, giving control of the match to a Barça team that did not have excessive problems closing it with solvency. In the final, they will face BAXI Manresa, who also had no problems beating Joventut Badalona by a clear 65-82.
