Barca stays undefeated with rout over Zenit

By Eurohoops team / [email protected]

The Barcelona organization paid tribute to the squad that won the 2010 EuroLeague championship before the game against Zenit St. Petersburg in Palau Blaugrana and then the team put on a dominant performance as a fitting conclusion for the night.

Nikola Mirotic scored 20 points on 7 – 11 shots in just 15:27 minutes as Barca crushed Zenit 84 – 58 to capture its fifth win in five EuroLeague games this season. The Blaugrana are the only undefeated team along with Olimpia Milano.

Barcelona’s trademark defense made the difference in the second quarter when the hosts outplayed their opponents 24 – 8 to reach halftime up 44 – 27. Zenit was unable to react after the break as Barca established and retained a lead well above 20 points for the rest of the game.
