The Flexx dominate Brescia 86-62 to reach Playoffs for second consecutive season

Pubblicato in English - Mercoledì 10 Maggio 2017

Playing like a well-oiled machine on defense and with spurts of talent on offense, Pistoia took the lead at the end of the first quarter and won for the 13th time in 15 home games.

The white-and-red held short-handed Brescia to a maximum of 18 points in a quarter playing hard-nosed defense from the start and Terran Petteway's 25 points (including 5 treys) to go along with captain Antonutti's 17 were more than enough on offense. But perhaps most telling of the way The Flexx played last Sunday's game (and almost all of the season) was Teddy Okereafor's performance. No points scored, no shots attempted but 24 minutes dedicated to the team on both offense (4 assists) and defense and a +/- of +17. Okereafor is as good an  example as any of why a team with one of the lowest budgets in the Italian Serie A is in the Playoffs again and why coach Enzo Esposito won Coach of the Year honors in the Italian Serie A.

Pistoia now face Venice in the first round of the Playoffs with game one scheduled for Saturday.
