Brilliant victory last Sunday for Valencia Basket on the Real Madrid court (82-88). The taronja team got off to a strong start in the Endesa League, holding the lead during the match for many minutes.
Good vibrations to get the season underway. In the words of Valencia Basket coach, Pedro Martínez, “the match went in fits and starts, with good moments for both teams. I think what stood out most for me was that my team didn’t go under when Real Madrid got ahead, and they kept doing the right things to keep every option open to win the game. We won because we played really well as a team and because we managed to keep our heads together through the difficult moments in the game. More than individual performances, I’d prefer to highlight the way all the players worked together and the 21 assists we had”.
