Pistoia – Venezia 79-92 game recap

Another playoff win, another wonderful game played by Reyer Venezia. Winning game 4 in Pistoia, Jeff Viggiano and friends secured their semifinals spot.

“We have been surprised to see Tyrus McGee on court” revealed Pistoia coach Vincenzo Esposito – “Anyway we tried to find a solution, but we did not stop Venezia”. The point is that Venezia coach Walter De Raffaele chosed the guard McGee, instead of the center Estaeban Batista, who is set to play semifinals game 1 on friday versus Avellino.

Venezia – Avellino and Milano – Trento are the two semifinals series of Italian Serie A, now named LBA. Also in Italy marketing works everyday to produce useless changes in our life.

As we read in italian newspaper tuttosport.com Terran Petteway (26 points, 5 rebounds) was the MVP in Game 3, securing for his team the first win in the series. Now we wait for Game 4.

🏀 PISTOIA – REYER VENEZIA
Venezia lead 2-1

In Game 3 Venezia coach Walter De Raffaele chosed Benjamin Ortner instead of Jamelle Hagins. We would not be surprised to see Hagins on court Friday night.

The point is that this match for Pistoia is a do or die game, while Venezia could lose the match and than wait for Pistoia at PalaTaliercio for Game 5. Anyway Venezia coach De Raffaele wants to close here the series and there are no reasons he can fail.

As we can read in eurobasket.com yesterday night (Saturday, May 13) Umana Venezia outgunned Flexx Pistoia for 1-0 lead. The game without a history. Umana Venezia led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter.

Venezia lead 1-0

Venezia is a team built to win the Italian title this season. Everyone in Italy expect to see the Serie A final EA7 Milano vs Reyer Venezia. The point is that Milano is suffering in this postseason, while Venezia started the adventure with a win.

Marquez Haynes seems to be the key player for Venezia in these weeks, but the player we suggest to follow is Ariel Filloy. The Argentinian playmaker last week played in Pistoia, where he is still remembered as an hero. Due to an injury he missed some games last winter and Venerzia suffered a lot wihout home. On Monday night Filloy will be on court ready to drive his team to another victory.
