Joao Gomes
The teams have now bigger motivation at this stage of Regular Season. Every game can be crucial and decide about teams' position at the end of Regular Season. The round 19 was rather boring as all games ended with very predictable results.

LPB top team - Benfica (16-1) managed to deliver another win on Sunday. This time they beat fifth ranked Vitoria SC (9-8) 75-63. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Vitoria SC. The game was mostly controlled by Benfica. Vitoria SC managed to win fourth quarter 25-19. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Benfica dominated down low during the game scoring 54 of its points in the paint compared to Vitoria SC's 30. Benfica forced 23 Vitoria SC turnovers and outrebounded them 43-31 including 28 on the defensive glass. It was a great evening for the former international Joao Gomes (201-85) who led his team to a victory with a double-double by scoring 18 points and 14 rebounds. American forward Frederick Gentry (201-77, college: McNeese St.) helped adding 15 points and 9 rebounds. At the losing side naturalized Cape Verdean guard Ivan Almeida (198-89, college: Stonehill) responded with 25 points and 6 rebounds. Benfica have an impressive series of six victories in a row. Defending champion maintains first place with 16-1 record. Vitoria SC at the other side keeps the fifth position with eight games lost. They share it with Sampaense. Benfica are looking forward to face Fisica (#9) in Torres Vedras in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Vitoria SC will play at home against Alges (#10) and is hoping to prove to their supporters that the loss was just an accident.
Second ranked CAB Madeira (13-3) beat at home 9th ranked Fisica (5-12) by 12 points 81-69, which is the biggest margin this round. It was a quality performance for American guard Jason Smith (183-83, college: Al.-Huntsville) who led the winners and scored 19 points and 8 assists. Fabio Lima accounted for 15 points and 10 rebounds. Edson Rosario (193-82) came up with 15 points and 7 rebounds for Fisica in the defeat. Fisica's coach Ivan Kostourkov rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. The victory was the third consecutive win for CAB Madeira. They maintain second place with 13-3 record having four points less than leader Benfica. Newly promoted Fisica keeps the ninth position with 12 games lost. CAB Madeira will play against bottom-ranked Galitos-Tley (#11) in Barreiro in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Fisica will play at home against the league's leader Benfica and hopes to get back on the winning track.

There were no shocking results in the rest of the games of round 19: Sampaense won against Alges on the opponent's court 75-69. Academica managed to outperform Barcelos in a home game 81-74. Bottom-ranked Galitos-Tley recorded a loss to Ovarense on the road 92-83. Ovarense defeated Barcelos on its own court 80-75.
The most impressive stats of the last round was 25 points and 12 rebounds by Jamarkus Holt of Alges.


Alges - Sampaense 69-75

Very expected game when 10th ranked Alges (2-15) were defeated at home by sixth ranked Sampaense (9-8) 75-69. The guests were tied after three quarters but managed to speed up in last quarter eventually winning the game. Sampaense made 18-of-21 charity shots (85.7 percent) during the game. It was an exceptional evening for American guard Steve Baker (187-90, college: Green Bay) who led the winners and scored 22 points and 8 rebounds (made all of his ten free throws !!!). Naturalized Serbian Stefan Djukic (201-89, agency: Dynamics Global Management) accounted for 18 points and 9 rebounds (on 8-of-10 shooting from the field) for the winning side. Baker is a former Eurobasket Summer League player, which is considered top international summer league in the market. American forward Jamarkus Holt (205, college: Delta St.) came up with a double-double by scoring 25 points and 12 rebounds and international Rui Quintino (194-83) added 11 points and 7 rebounds respectively for Alges in the defeat. Alges' coach Mario Silva rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Sampaense moved-up to fifth place, which they share with Vitoria SC. Alges lost their seventh game in a row. Newly promoted team keep the tenth position with 15 games lost. They share it with Galitos-Tley. Sampaense will play against higher ranked Academica (#4) in Coimbra in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Alges will play on the road against Vitoria SC (#6) in Guimaraes and hope to get back on the winning track.

Academica - Barcelos 81-74

Rather predictable result in Coimbra where fourth ranked Academica (12-5) defeated 7th ranked Barcelos (7-10) 81-74. The hosts took control from the first minutes by winning first half. But Barcelos won third quarter 28-17. However it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. The game was decided in the last minutes when Academica won last quarter 23-17. They made 17-of-19 charity shots (89.5 percent) during the game. It was an exceptional evening for forward Joao Balseiro (192-87) who led the winners and scored 27 points and 8 rebounds. The former international swingman Fernando Sousa (192-81) accounted for 18 points and 5 rebounds for the winning side. Guard Carlos Fechas (180-81) came up with 19 points and 5 rebounds and international point guard Nuno Oliveira (186-89) added 17 points and 8 rebounds respectively for Barcelos in the defeat. Four Barcelos players scored in double figures. The victory was the third consecutive win for Academica. They maintain fourth place with 12-5 record.

Ovarense - Galitos-Tley 92-83

Not a big story in a game when 11th ranked Galitos-Tley (2-15) was defeated on the road by third ranked Ovarense (13-5) 92-83. Galitos-Tley was ahead by 5 points at the halftime before a 52-38 second half run of Ovarense. They made 25-of-33 charity shots (75.8 percent) during the game. Galitos-Tley was plagued by 25 personal fouls down the stretch. It was an exceptional evening for international Fernando Neves (194-80) who led the winners and scored 26 points. The former international forward Miguel Miranda (205-78, agency: Dynamics Global Management) accounted for 14 points, 7 rebounds and 8 assists for the winning side. Five Ovarense players scored in double figures. The former international point guard Pedro Pinto (188-88) came up with 25 points and 7 assists and the former international guard Antonio Tavares (183-75) added 18 points respectively for Galitos-Tley in the defeat. The victory was the third consecutive win for Ovarense. They maintain third place with 13-5 record having just two points less than leader Benfica. Galitos-Tley lost their sixth game in a row. Newly promoted team stay at the bottom position with 15 games lost. They share it with Alges. Ovarense will have a break next round, and it should allow them to practice more before next game.

Round 15
Ovarense - Barcelos 80-75

Everything went according to plan when third ranked Ovarense (13-5) beat at home 7th ranked Barcelos (7-10) 80-75. However just five-point win is not that big difference and the fans of host team counted on more convincing victory. Barcelos were ahead by 4 points at the halftime before a 31-12 third quarter run of Ovarense. It was an exceptional evening for the former international forward Miguel Miranda (205-78, agency: Dynamics Global Management) who led the winners with a double-double by scoring 20 points, 11 rebounds and 7 assists. Spanish power forward Sergi Coll (204-82) accounted for 19 points and 6 rebounds for the winning side.

Four Barcelos players scored in double figures. The victory was the third consecutive win for Ovarense. They maintain third place with 13-5 record having just two points less than leader Benfica. Barcelos at the other side keep the seventh position with ten games lost. Ovarense will have a break next round, and it should allow them to practice more before next game.
