Willy Hernangomez had 20 points and nine rebounds to push Barcelona past Coviran Granada 94 – 61 on the road in a game for Round 19 of the Spanish ACB League regular season. The Blaugrana put on a strong performance to bounce back to victories after an away defeat to Anadolu Efes in the EuroLeague.

Barca was up 32 – 42 at halftime and then dominated the third quarter to extend its lead to 20 (47 – 67), proceeding to turn the game into a blowout. Tomas Satoransky contributed 15 points to the winning side while Jabari Parker and Dario Brizuela scored 10 apiece as their team improved to 13 – 6.

Kwan Cheatham (20 points) was the only Granada player in double figures. His team is now 6 – 13.

Barcelona, still without leading scorer Nicolas Laprovittola, will be facing Olimpia Milano in Italy Friday (26/1) in EuroLeague.
