ACB: Campazzo prevents Unicaja's revenge | ACB 2019



The base takes Real Madrid out of the mess in Mlaga

Daro Brizuela and Laprovittola, during the match.

There were four free throws and one last rebound: there was no pica, only the coldness that the match claimed. Facundo Campazzo he took Real Madrid out of the tangle in which he had gotten into Mlaga in an exercise of leadership and serenity. Only 15 days after the final of the Copa del Rey, Unicaja demanded revenge on a burning Martn Carpena and stayed within a minute of enjoying it. Then, the score reflected a draw at 88; then the basis appeared to keep the white team in the fight for the leadership of the ACB. (Narration and statistics: 88-92)

It was a really unexpected end to a match that seemed decided more than once. In fact, everything started just like the last Cup final. With the game between Campazzo himself and Edy Tavares as main argument, Real Madrid opened an exaggerated advantage in the second part (23-39, min. 14) and most of those involved, from the white squad to the Andalusian fans, barred another act of forcefulness, another show of power. But a few Unicaja players were not willing to go through the same thing again. With the full nurse of the team – the bases Alberto Daz and Jaime Fernndez, Carlos Surez, Melvin Ejim, Axel Toupane and Deon Thompson-, three men, Josh Adams, Daro Brizuela and Adam Waczynski They decided to drive the duel crazy and they got it. With more heart to play, without rest at any time, they returned the options to Luis Casimiro's team and even almost completed the comeback (46-48, min. 23).

Local lease in the last quarter

Until Real Madrid was put back in the hands of its star partner. On a night when no substitute exterior, nor Laprovittola, neither Causeur, neither Rudy, they were successful, Campazzo's return was proverbial and Tavares, as so many times, it prevailed again in the hoops. A few seconds after finishing the third quarter, Real Madrid had sentenced the match again (53-69), but Unicaja forced his pride one last time. A triple of Brizuela from beyond the center of the field made believe in the triumph and, again with Adams as a reference and the help of Volodymyr Gerun inside, they equated the punctuation. Ah the tie reached 88 and the time of Campazzo. The know-how of the base rescued the gray day of some of his companions and also highlighted in those decisive minutes the excellent work of the young man Usman Garuba, which plug one of Adams's last attempts.

The inertia of Real Madrid since the semifinals of the Copa del Rey, with its wide Euroleague victories against Fenerbahce and Panathinaikos, suffered a small slowdown, but thanks to Campazzo not a slowdown. Unicaja only lacked a minute to enjoy revenge at home for the Cup final.
