A game that was a walk in the park for three quarters, ended up a dog fight with Barcelona getting the 92-86 win over Tenerife after some pretty tense final minutes.

Coach Txus Vidorreta was ejected with a double technical foul,  Tim Abrimatitis finished the night with 14 points and with 26 seconds, they made it a four-point game (87-83).

Still, that was the best that could do. Nico Brussino tried to steal the ball from Pau Ribas, a foul was called, Vidorreta was ejected and the game was practically over.

It was a peculiar match with Barcelona dominating the game for three quarters, having a 20-point advantage (72-52) at the start of the fourth period, but letting Tenerife score 34 points in the last ten minutes.

Still, the winners survived in the end, having in total six players scoring in double digits with Ribas being the top scorer with 14. They will face tomorrow the winner of the semifinal game between Real Madrid and Joventut Badalona in their quest to win the “Copa Del Rey” trophy.
