Spain nothing was played, young people had unique opportunity to show Sergio Scariolo that you can count on them when push comes to shove. The three newcomers Fran Guerra, Miquel Salvó and Joel Parra They didn’t take long to debut, but Darío Brizuela is the one knock the door of a possible call when the serious thing arrives in the Olympic Games or the Eurobasket of 2022. Without the players of the NBA and the Euroleague. Spain took the victory with a great performance from Jonathan Barreiro with 24 points and Darío Brizuela with 21. Fran Guerra scored a free throw with six tenths to go that gave the victory to Spain (88-89).
The two teams were already qualified for the 2022 Eurobasket and what they wanted was to give a show and play entertaining basketball. They did so, at least initially. Darío Brizuela is the ‘boss’ in this last window and from the initial jump it was noticed in attack. The Unicaja guard scored nine points in the first quarter, which was reached at the end with a minimum income of one point for Poles (27-26).
Neither team took off on the scoreboard. Until the break, neither Poland nor Spain managed to open a gap of more than four points. AJ Slaughter, who finished with 27 points, took the rhythm of the game as he wanted, but Scariolo’s men did not take their face off the game, with a collective game that allowed the second quarter to end with all the players having scored at least one point.
Poland accelerated in the final stretch of the second period and only one triple over the horn by Jonathan Barreiro was able to equalize the meeting ‘in extremis’. Scariolo pulled rotations so as not to tire their players and be able to physically stand up to the Poles. It was day to draw conclusions, and the coach, who he completed 150 games on the national bench, could take good note.
To start the third period, Poland put the direct and got to six points, but Sergio Scariolo made the team react with a timeout. The partial (0-7) turned around and after a few minutes with much more intensity and the good work of López- Arostegui and Barreiro, the Selection returned to be above (49-50). The game was leveled again until reaching the last 10 minutes.
Spain came up from the hand of Jonathan Barreiro. The Zaragoza shooter reached 22 points without failure in the third quarter. A perfect effectiveness that put Scariolo’s men with an advantage before going into the last 10 minutes of the match (65-70). An advantage that still left the game open and with everything to be decided, although it was not decisive for either of them.
Poland got stuck in attack, but for a reason. Spain squeezed into his hoop and caused the losses of the Poles that allowed him to open a gap of six points with five minutes remaining. Scariolo forgot about rotations and with a great Darío Brizuela y Barreiro was left with the victory in his 150th match with Spain. Best gift, impossible.
