A team on the rise against a team in baja. The defensive work is exceptional Svetislav Pesic has developed from the pre-season in Barcelona against the confusion of a Real Madrid that has been decomposed with the injury of Sergio Llull's that has become overly dependent, as we have seen in the last few days. As things are, and yet in the month of November -that is to say, very early and still with three-quarters of a season to play, this Barcelona renewed begins to show credentials true for the first time in several seasons. In the ACB and in the Euroleague.
Pesic has infused to your template, not only aggression, but organization on defense: assists in the locks, slowing down the attempts of pick-and-roll of the opponent, the guard on the weak side to avoid the shots of distant unmarked, the closing of the bounce... copy in the set. No player is, in addition, to a much higher level or much lower than their peers. This regularity of performance is another merit of the coach, Serbian, and a team that, without doubt, is doing a case.
Madrid has suffered more than expected casualties, and not only that of Llull: the return of Trey Thompkins and Gustavo Ayon after their absences have not yet been very convincing -inferiority reboteadora of the whites has been obvious in recent games, and against Barcelona the rebound offensive of the premises has been devastating, and now we're checking, with the base minorcan unavailable, what it means to be lost to Luka Doncic.
With a junior very green of theoretical replacement player today in Dallas, Pablo Laso has had to resort to Klemen Prepelic as a respite from a harried Facundo Campazzo. And Prepelic is not Doncic. I had already done doubting your category as shooter pure, which is the virtue by which he had been fingerprinted, and now has saved more or less furniture, but nor is it a basis of trade. Here there is a hole you will have to see how it goes filling Laso if, throughout the rest of the season, become missing or Llull and Campazzo.
This next week, CSKA and Fenerbahce are going to serve as a mirror of the current moment of the two Spanish teams in matches of Euroleague, and it will be interesting to see whether Barcelona and Madrid confirm or not the impressions it has left this derby is so unequal in the ACB. Madrid knows what are the ups and downs, but maybe they are few days available to it to begin to recover, while Barca would be surprised if not continues its steady progression.
