Daniels, Ricci and the rediscovered Datome allow Messina to return under the Virtus. Emilians contracted for the Bahcesehir challenge? Lamb’s triple keeps the Marchigiani in the playoff area
Olimpia Milano overtook Reggio Emilia and took home the third consecutive victory in the league despite the absences of Melli, Delaney and Rodriguez. In the other advance of the 28th matchday, Pesaro’s important sprint victory against Treno for 83-82.
Reggio Emilia-Milan 63-67
Coach Messina’s team leads throughout the match thanks to the tests of Daniels (4/5 of 3) and Ricci (5 points and 10 rebounds) and finds Gigi Datome. The Italian winger (5 points with 2/6 shooting in 14 ‘) has revised the field and the quintet after the long stop, warming up the engines ahead of Tuesday, when the Armani Exchange will be in Istanbul to play game three of the quarter-finals of the Euroleague against Efes. A trip to the Bosphorus that also awaits the Emilians who instead on Wednesday, again at the Ulker Sports Arena, will compete against the hosts of the Bahcesehir for the final victory of the Fiba Europe Cup, starting from -3 in the first leg. The impression is that this appointment has somewhat conditioned the initial approach of Caja’s boys, returning from a long tour de force between the league and the Cup (48th match of the season) and struggling for too long with heavy absences like those of Candi , Diouf and the Lithuanian sniper Olisevicius. The strongest won, despite Unahotels trying to fight anyway, coming within a step of catching Milan, with Strautins’ triple of a tie coming out by a whisker with 7 seconds left.
Reggio Emilia Hopkins 16, Strautins 15, Larson 9
Milan Daniels 14, Bentil 9, Grant 7
Pesaro immediately makes it clear that to act as a sparring partner in the Eagle Basket Earth Day has not the slightest intention: the red and white score the first eight points of the game, force Molin to a quick timeout and above all keep the Eagle without points on the scoresheet for half of the first quarter. The hosts are unlocked with Williams and a triple from Reynolds, but again slide above the double figure of disadvantage with the VL to rely on Jones ‘muscles around the iron (12-19 after 10’ of play). In the second quarter, the shooters from Carpegna Prosciutto put on a ballistic show at the BLM Group Arena: the guests arrive in the middle of the game with 7/9 from the arc, only a wild Diego Flaccadori who scores is able to limit their escape attempts. seven consecutive points and signs the 35-44 with which you go to the long interval. In the third quarter after a perky start from Pesaro, Dolomiti Energia begins to engage and get into the game: thanks to an uphill defense of intensity and efficiency and an attack that has Reynolds as protagonists (50-53 and Banchi timeout) and then above all Johnson. The number 0 marks 10 almost consecutive points that launch the hosts to overtake just as we arrive at the final 10 ‘(61-59). Four devastating triples, one after the other, revive the pace of the guests: Captain Forray, however, is possessed, and Flaccadori does not miss a beat. Two triples from Reynolds put the biancoblù in the wake (76-77), Johnson’s conclusion from the arc gives Aquila 81-77 with thirty seconds left. Sanford scores a triple, Bradford makes 1/2 in the line, and Lamb signs the masterpiece from the corner which is worth two very heavy points for the VL.
Trento Reynolds 19, Flaccadori 16, Johnson 15
