03 February 2014 – Yesterday Valencia Basket received FC Barcelona in what was a crucial game for consolidating our second position in the league’s ranking. To add to the difficulty of this face-off, besides the existing three injured players Justin Doellman was a last-minute inactive due to a minor injury.
Barcelona started off very strong and was ahead 16 points in the second quarter. In the third quarter, however, Valencia made an epic comeback with a 33-16 split. The fourth quarter was an equal battle and the game could have gone either way. The ‘Fonteta’ arena turned into hell’s kitchen with the fans supporting the team more than ever, which may have given that little extra to help Valencia take the win 95-93.
After the game I was able to pick up autographs from Mario Hezonja, Joey Dorsey and Juan Carlos Navarro.
