Thomas Heurtel

is a different player.

Real Madrid did not sign anything this summer, beyond the gruesome past stories of the Frenchman as a Barça player.

It's a great base, but it also has its loopholes.

His absentmindedness, his defensive laziness.

You win a final and make any coach desperate.

He is also very clever.

To integrate in white, nothing better than, as a first step, look for buddies.

[58-86: Narration and statistics]

In Andorra, Comanche territory, it was a walk this time for Madrid. The meeting was broken in the middle of the third quarter, shortly after he found, in addition, the success (three triples in a row by


...). Beyond assuming the fourth consecutive victory so far this year, against a rival still far from its past times, he left interesting details of what this tenth season of Laso will be. A group marked by its two towers, unique in Europe. And for the ability of the rest to put them into orbit.

And there, Heurtel finds the loophole from which to grow, from which to seek his best version.

In Andorra a precious connection was born, that of the Gaul with


(he hardly coincided with



As if they lead a life dancing together, always drawing perfect lines, unstoppable continuations towards the hoop.

The African, who arrived obviously tired from the recent Afrobasket, dominated MoraBanc and its athletic centers thanks to the complicity of the point guard.

Yabusele and Hanga

Obviously, they lack mechanisms to grease Madrid. Even discover more possibilities of this renewed template that Laso manages. But the competitive spirit endures, because new faces bring hunger, old scars and the desire to claim as many of those who remain. The Super Cup was the best example, but also these first bars of the ACB. In Andorra, always a rough place, soon a lively Madrid was found, with tusks, far above the rival.

At the start, the brushstrokes of the beautiful painting that Heurtel intends to paint in white were surprising. Still far from his spark of yesteryear (four losses, a triple of five), for now he is looking for partners. And who better than Edy Tavares, with whom he connected again and again at dawn, supplying him with all kinds of presents, five assists in the blink of an eye so that the giant could put on his boots. The 0-10 start was countered by Andorra with triples, which was at times their only way of hurting the rival. Two from


to whet your appetite.

Then the duel entered a strange phase, with losses, chaos, errors (a tray from


) and even unsportsmanlike as hard as that of Poirier on his compatriot


. But

Ibon Navarro's team,

also very changed, had a hard time scoring and Madrid did not miss an opportunity. With two triples in a row by

Alocen he

put the maximum (22-34), dominating the rebound now also with Poirier, imposing his defense, powerful and comfortable until the break.

The final blow came after the break, with a 10-21 run in which two other new players,

Hanga and Yabusele




There was not much else in Andorra (the points of another of the new ones,


) with such a large score, both thinking about the imminent next day.
