The Flexx beat Capo d'Orlando 75-59 to win third in a row

Pubblicato in English - Giovedì 13 Aprile 2017

Pistoia went into last Sunday night's home game hoping to stay even with their direct rivals for a spot in the playoff race. They came out of the game in sole possession of 8th place as both Brindisi and Torino lost surprisingly at home. And just as important is the fact that the white-and-red are only one game behind a 7th place Capo d'Orlando team which, after the first quarter, were dominated on both sides of the court and are now behind in the head-to-head matchup in the point differential which determines how teams are seeded in the playoffs.

Looking at the game itself, Terran Petteway helped break open the contest in the second quarter with a barrage of 3-pointers, but it was The Flexx's suffocating team defense which held the Sicilians to 39% from the field for the game and just 42 points in the last three quarters that really made the difference. New comer Michael Jenkins, who has won all three games he has played with The Flexx, had his usual steady game and added 3 3-pointers of his own, while the point guard duo Moore-Okereafor combined for 9 assists and Eric Lombardi broke out of a mini shooting slump going 5 for 5 on two pointers while playing his usual stellar defense.

Pistoia now travel to Cantù where they will play Easter Saturday with tip-off scheduled at 8.30 p.m.
