If Caparrós coined that of going to the dentist for every visit to the Camp Nou, the thing about Bilbao Basket when he sees the red Zaragoza shirt in front of him is like seeing all the dental specialists in the city of El Pilar at the same time. Between last year and this one, many protagonists have changed, but they continue to shake and sweat liters when they measure themselves. Who knows why. There is no clear reason. In recent times the visit to Prince Felipe has been a funeral and in Miribilla, between a pre-season friendly and today in Miribilla, the mourning has not stopped. There were eight minutes of the game. More or less. The image of RETAbet leads to deep concern, because Betis and Gipuzkoa, the only ones that could be considered worse on a list to flee from LEB Oro, emit much better feelings.
Bilbao Basket devised used a lot of cosmetics to try to cushion the bad vibes that Casademont causes. For example, he completed the initial presentation video with a mate from Balvin. The Czech returned after a long absence and even left the starter. It has a double effect: it fills the troops with energy and frightens, fixes the attention of the rival. And at first that vigilance created spaces for Jenkins. Hlinason made three fouls in 5 minutes and it seemed that he had left, that at last the jinx would break.
But little by little the people of Biscay recalled that they are cannon fodder. They dedicated themselves to exchanging baskets instead of reducing possessions before a Zaragoza that applauded the parliamentary motion, since it is one of the highest scorers in the League. He packed almost 29 points in the first quarter and felt like he was flying over the track. Beyond the fact that the rival chokes you, the important thing is to do your things well. And Bilbao Basket without its quarterback Rousselle does nothing judiciously. Casademont made 12 of his 16 shots in the first act. When everything is made so easy to start a black beast, the debate points to escabechina. The ‘Oveja’ Hernández acted for a few moments without a reference pivot, to gain even more rhythm. The difference grew from 24-32 and Mumbrú tried to trip with a zone, which was destroyed by the visiting team with a mate from Brusino.
The impotence of the Bilbao coach led to a technique, for angrily protesting a foul on Zyskowski. From a dunk by Balvin to five minutes before the break until they all went to the dressing room there was no Biscayan score. A 12-0 in a room in which the ‘men in black’ took a walk through the embarrassment. Barreiro opened his hat and baskets came out like churros. 38-26 was a pain to behold, a horrible sensation.
The defense can clearly lead Bilbao Basket to relegation. The players don’t get anywhere, they are always late, they dry up their opponents from behind and on top of that they have a serious problem with free throws. If they went through a stage in which the Frankamp type gamers massacred them, now they do it in full teams. The rhythm did not drop and nobody on the Basque side generated anything to look for imbalances. The wiggle ran for a 56-91 at 4:13 to finish. The demolition stopped at that difference. A review that one does not heal in a long time. The wild cards of the changes have been exhausted and you have to hit the table.
