‘Penya’ and Tenerife, for the decisive beating


Club Joventut Badalona and Lenovo Tenerife are one win away from reaching the semifinals of the Endesa League Playoff, and the holder of that ticket will be known after the third and final quarter-final duel at the Olímpic de Badalona, ​​home of the first of two beatings that the two teams have given each other in this series.

There’s only room for one more beating, if it comes at all. At the moment, the ‘Penya’ beat Tenerife 100-69 at home in the opening match. In Tenerife, the result was 103-76 in favor of the locals, who leveled this match that now comes to an end after two good shows.

The unknown is to know if under the maximum pressure of playing the pass to a match, to an ‘all or nothing’, Joventut and Tenerife will go out to look for a match similar to those seen or, on the contrary, there will be more control and aversion to the explosion . A crazy party opts for the most successful team and flees from possible reactions.

At the moment, in an even series and with many similarities in the first and second games, if someone has a 1 percent favoritism it would be ‘Penya’, who play at home and the Olímpic, full and hot as it can and should be, It already puts a 1-0 on the scoreboard.

The blissful fortune, destiny, luck, anniversaries… All of this counts for little at this moment of truth. To begin with, because in the matches of the Regular Phase of the Endesa League, Tenerife stormed the Olímpic and ‘Penya’ did the same at the Santiago Martín. And, in this Playoff, the beatings were given by the locals.

We will have to wait for the main referee Daniel Hierrezuelo to throw the first ball into the air at the Olímpic to begin to know what attitude the green and blacks will take, whether to go for it all or be more restrained to gamble on those little details that are so famous in the basketball today.

Tired, but without last-minute casualties, the Ribas, Tomic, Vives or Feliz will try to beat Huertas, Salin, Wiltjer or Shermadini again at home and avoid a return to the past of the Regular Phase that would wake them up from a dream that only will remain valid for one.
