In what was an hour of the half-time break due to scoreboard problems, in the third period, the hosts tried to come back but eventually fell short. After talking to Eurohoops about how Murcia is a team that’ll keep fighting, Augusto Lima led his team to an important result, finishing with 24 points, and seven rebounds. For the losing side, Jarrod Jones finished with 16.
