(26 points, 28 PIR) was once again Barça's great argument not only to maintain their winning streak against a tough Alba from Berlin (80-67).
The triumph of
also allows them to mathematically secure the track factor in the quarter-finals of the Euroleague.
, throughout the entire match, and
, in the third period, also stood out against an eminently choral rival, in which none of their scorers managed to reach double digits.
Barça was excessively lukewarm in defense in the first period.
And, as much as he managed to finish the fourth with a minimal defeat, 22-23, at times he also exhibited a certain lack of specificity in his attacking actions.
Mirotic, the figure to which the Barcelona fans can practically always be entrusted, and Oriola were perhaps the brightest on the part of the locals against an Alba in which the protagonism was at all times much more distributed.
, on the visiting side, stood out only slightly in a room in which

, practically on the horn, made sure that this distance was only four points (62-58).
An insistence that, despite everything, would only serve to die on the shore.
Barça fought tremendously on defense and, once again, found Mirotic's best minutes to quickly build a maximum advantage of 13 points, with a 9-0 run, which would remain until the end of the duel.
The 80-67 final, somewhat misleading given the evolution of the previous three quarters, would be in charge of finishing it precisely the Montenegrin Hispanic with a launch from beyond the line of 6.75 to ensure the advantage of the home court factor in the quarterfinals .
