Besiktas scored only 4 points in the 2nd quarter

Besiktas, which seemed to be at the beginning of the season a powerful squad, was this round in Turkish BSL the champion of negative records. Despite having much more turnovers (12) than the visitors (5) Banvit reduced to silence the Besiktas offense especially in the 2nd quarter. After almost 8 minutes from the 2nd period, the students of Dusko Ivanovic were scoreless until the moment when Burak Yildizli scored a bucket, and then, a minute later Joe Alexander scored another one and that was all. Only 4 points in the entire quarter for Besiktas who finished the 1st half having just 25 points scored.

Joe Alexander (26 points), seconded by Samet Geyik (16 points) was the main presence for Besiktas in a game where the other 2 Americans of Besiktas were pathetic: Kyle Gibson finished with 5 points, having 2 from 13 shots and negative index rate: -7 and the ex-Barcelona guard Phil Pressey has 2 points and 0 efficiency value.

Actually, Besiktas had much more shots attempted (73) than Banvit (61) but a disastrous percentage from 3 points: 4/25 (16%) and from the free-throw line: 5/12 (41%).
