Après match

A winning return to Blois

After their epic victory in the Leaders Cup, Paris Basketball travelled to the Jeu de Paume de Blois on Sunday, where they faced off against a fierce opposition that saw our players win 92-88.


The match


Deprived of Malcolm, Ngouama and Shahrvin yesterday, Paris were put to the sword by a team and a crowd that gave nothing away. But once again, it was Tuomas Iisalo’s men who had the last laugh.


Leading by a point at half-time, Paris had to pull out all the stops, particularly in the money time, when, as is often the case, the team came up with the big shots, including 2 three-pointers from Justin Simon, before sealing victory in the final minute.


Player of the match


17 points, 5 rebounds, 6 assists and 3 steals: Leaders Cup MVP TJ Shorts was back on more than solid form! Justin Simon had 16 points and 6 rebounds.

Heading north


Paris will have only a short rest, as this Tuesday (8pm), the late game against Gravelines-Dunkerque looms. At the same time, the Parisians will know their EuroCup quarter-final opponent, Ulm vs Badalone, this Tuesday at 7.30pm. On Saturday, Bandja Sy’s team-mates travel to Dijon for the 25th day of Betclic ELITE.
