At the end of a long battle Brindisi defeats Pistoia with a score of 96-90 at PalaCarrara. Sakota’s team remains clinging to the dream of salvation, remaining only two points away from the third-to-last place (the last useful for salvation) occupied by Treviso with two matchdays remaining in the regular season. An Apulian team that was stoic this evening, coming back from -13 (75-62 with one minute left in the third quarter) and posting a 21-3 run that completely reversed the inertia of the match. Brindisi’s masterpiece arrived in the fourth quarter, where the hosts were left with just 15 points scored, a factor which then allowed them to find the final victory. A match in which Sakota’s team was able to throw their heart over the obstacle, above all showing greater competitive determination and intensity at the end of the match, which brought the desired results. Now in view of these last matches it will be necessary to work on the drops in tension within the matches, which occurred again today and which risked compromising the match, with the Tuscans who seemed firmly in control of the match until the 30th minute. For Brindisi came 22 points from Sneed and 20 points from Washington. On the other hand, a wasted opportunity for Pistoia, which could have put a series at stake on access to the playoffs and which instead will have to postpone the appointment once again. The defeats of Naples and Sassari, however, still keep hopes alive, but from now on errors will have to be kept to a minimum, to avoid ruining the playoff dream one step away from the finish line. An unexpected knockout within friendly walls, which follows the unexpected one that occurred a few weeks ago against Treviso. A team that has found its own identity, but struggles to show it with continuity and this evening this was evident, with the team that, after controlling the match, then broke up at the moment. For Pistoia 19 points come from Moore and 14 from Varnado.
