The Take

Last season's Eurocup runner-up, Herbalife Gran Canaria Las Palmas (2-0), welcomes Enel Basket Brindisi (0-2) to town on Tuesday. The hosts have knocked down 24 triples through the first two games, the most of all Eurocup teams so far this season, and aim to continue with success at home, where they have won 16 of their last 17 Eurocup games dating back to early 2011. Wednesday brings a pair of matchups between four teams tied in the middle of the standings. MHP RIESEN Ludwigsburg (1-1) plays at home against Grissin Bon Reggio Emilia (1-1) for the first time ever. In a showdown of two classic Eurocup teams, Le Mans Sarthe Basket (1-1) hosts ALBA Berlin (1-1) and the Round 2 MVP Dragan Milosavljevic. The two sides have not met since 2009-10 season, when they played each other four times, and ALBA won three of those. Le Mans has the Eurocup's highest three-point shooting accuracy, 48.6%, going into Round 3.

Quotes Head Coaches

GARCIA RENESES, AITO
Herbalife Gran Canaria Las Palmas
"It will be a difficult game because Eurocup teams are a little bit different from ones in the Spanish League. They are a good team and we are learning the style of play of Enel Brindisi and I hope we can adjust to them and learn from our last game. We are going to face a very strong and intense team, so we must be ready for this challenge and to compete."

"We have to improve some things. The past is the past, now we have to focus in this next game against Brindisi. It will be a very tough game for sure. We need to continue playing well during 40 minutes, not short periods of time. Eurocup teams have a different style, we have to adjust to that, but also to continue to do our game. if we achieve to do it, we might be successful another night."

Gran Canaria blasts Enel Brindisi to remain unbeaten

Herbalife Gran Canaria Las Palmas remained undefeated as it mauled Enel Basket Brindisi 103-76 on Tuesday. The point tally was the second most in club history and tied Avtodor Saratov for the most scored in the Eurocup this season. The result lifted last season’s Eurocup runner-up to 3-0, while Brindisi dropped to 0-3. Gran Canaria used 9-0 and 10-0 runs in the first quarter to take charge. The difference stood at 50-35 at halftime and Brindisi never came within 10 the rest of the way. Sasu Salin led the way with 20 points on 6-of-10 three-point shooting and Kyle Kuric amassed 18 points on 5-of-7 shooting from downtown. Alen Omic scored 12 on 6-of-7 shooting, while Kevin Pangos tallied 11 points and 8 assists. Durand Scott paced Brindisi with 20 points, Kenneth Kadji added 16 and Djordje Gagic scored 10 in defeat.

The two teams traded baskets early and it was 8-7 after three minutes on a Kadji basket, however Pangos and Omic teamed up on a 9-0 charge to take control. Salin buried a pair of threes in another 10-0 push as Gran Canaria soared ahead 29-11. After Domenico Marzaioli for Brindisi and Eulis Baez for Gran Canaria each made free throws, the first quarter ended at 31-13. Kuric further stretched the difference with a triple to start the second quarter. Scott scored twice for the visitors, who started to climb back. Adrian Banks and Nemanja Milosevic netted free throws to close the gap to 41-29. Omic and Salin kept Gran Canaria comfortable ahead, before Kadji free throws made it 50-35 at halftime.

Salin and Kuric hit threes on the first two possessions of the second half, but Brindisi’s offense was firing too with Scott and Gagic leading the way. Salin and Kadji swapped threes to make it 63-53 midway through the third quarter. However Brad Newley scored 7 in a 9-0 run as Gran Canaria surged to a 25-point lead by the end of the quarter, 77-52 after Salin’s sixth three-pointer. Kuric and Albert Oliver kept pushing the home side with triples as the lead swelled to 30 after threes from Pablo Aguilar and Kuric. Alex Harris heated up for Brindisi, but it was too little, too late as the hosts cruised to victory.

"We started the game very strong, then had a small downturn and came back strong. I am satisfied about the game, which had many positive things: a victory and a fast and colorful game. We can be happy, but also need to be thinking about our next games. It’s been a good, positive start, but this is only the beginning and we cannot let it deceive us."
BUCCHI, PIERO
Enel Basket Brindisi
"Congratulations to our opponents of course. They played a great game. We were too shy in the beginning and when we began to play better in the second quarter it was too late. We played a bad game. The first 10 minutes killed the game. "

"What a great game! The whole team was shooting crazy, we shot the lights out. I felt good and happy to make the threes. Enel Brindisi is a very athletic team, I think they missed their point guard."
