Barca can’t win, try to punch CSKA

This article isn’t about stats. Because stats were good for both teams. Barcelona had even a better index rate than CSKA at the end of the game. But it’s again about the fact that the Spanish squad cannot face big teams. It doesn’t matter if it’s Fenerbahce, Olympiacos, CSKA or the eternal rivals from Real Madrid.

Barca can lead any opponent, but cannot win. It comes a moment in their game when they make all the type of mistakes, playing like juniors. In 3 minutes they blow the lead and their chances to win. The yesterday game against CSKA was just an example: Barcelona had 59-50 in the 3rd period and then they completely lost their minds. And it was not Pesic fault, simply the team reach this moment when their brains become smaller and bad decision are made both the offensive and the defensive.

At the end of the game, the frustration starts to appear and the teams almost fought on the court. Also, after the game at the press conference, Itoudis was accused by a Barcelona executive Manolo Flores to be provocative. But what is provocative? To win because your opponent, on their home court cannot play basketball? Because you have an important lead and you cannot manage to maintain the level until the end of the game? To have the referees on your side to help you a bit, but to be too dumb and lose the game anyway?
