Game, set and match for Monaco! -BeBasket

At Roland-Garros in front of 10,000 people, Paris could not raise its head against Monaco. However, the Parisians were not far behind. With 15 seconds to go, Paris was one possession away from ousting Monaco. But then, on a phone pass between Axel Toupane and Kyle Allman, Elie Okobo got up and put Mike James into orbit to close up shop.

A logical success for Monaco as the lineup seemed unbalanced and the dynamics so opposite (4 wins in a row for the Roca Team and 4 losses in a row for Paris). Despite everything, Paris maintained the comparison throughout the match, although Monaco pushed them in the 3me fourth. If the match had problems to start, Paris knew how to make the difference in the first quarter against a Roca team lacking in skill. Under the impetus of Tyrone Wallace and Juhann Begarin, Paris managed to create a first gap at the end of the first act (28-18, 10′). A gap that was not to the liking of the Roca Team who then went on to make a quick 10-0 run over their evening rival to come back (28-28, 16′) and then take control of the match. Stunned, the Parisians trusted Juhann Begarin, who with his speed pierced the Monegasque rearguard and kept his team in contact at half-time (38-40, 20′).

Paris didn’t go the distance

After the break, Paris did not know how to put the same ingredients as in the first half against a Monaco that was not confident. However, Sasa Obradovic’s men were successful at the start of the second half and managed to get away with their host of the day led by a very good Mike James and a beautiful Adrien Moerman. +13, Paris was broken (50-63, 25′).

Courageously encouraged by their fans, the Parisians knew how to remobilize and raise their voices to get back in touch with the Monegasques thanks to a triple by Tyrone Wallace and a dazzling performance by Juhann Begarin. Paris was then at -5 at the start of money-time and could still dream of a feat against the Monegasque ogre (68-73, 30′). If Paris has come closer, Monaco has made an effort to remove the black points from the Parisian team. Namely, deficiencies in the defensive sector. Paris offered too many open triples to the Monegasques, who did not have to be asked to hit, like Adrien Moerman (17 points to 5/6 in triples) who was an artillery to take off the Roca Team once again (66- 57, 27′ later 78-86, 34′).

Still lagging behind, Paris has once again found the necessary resources to come back from the match. Axel Toupane took matters into his own hands and brought the Parisian team back thanks to a winning basket and two setbacks by Toupane himself and Juhann Begarin (90-91, 38′). Afterwards, Paris Basketball squandered the opportunity to move on to the Roca Team and Mike James breathed new life into his team in the dying seconds to win.

Fifth consecutive loss for Paris

This Sunday night, for the premiere of Will Weaver, Paris Basketball recorded a fifth consecutive loss on Betclic ELITE and is more than ever in the trap. Against Monaco, the Parisians blew hot and cold and couldn’t beat Roca Team despite a good collective copy. “Both teams were in a bit of a hurry”analyzed Juhann Begarin. “Monaco knew better how to manage tempo and intensity. We saw it on Axel’s last shot, which was countered, and on the fumble at the end. »

This Sunday night, the Parisian defense once again proved that they were the bad student of this Betclic ELITE 2022-2023 by conceding another 95 points. “We have to be even more aggressive defensively. We saw that we could do it in Ankara (during the 90-75 victory in the European Championship), we need perseverance”Juhann Begarin underlined.

Undefeated leader of the Betclic Elite, Monaco will return to the Euroleague this Tuesday (8:05 p.m.) against Maccabi Tel-Aviv and will try to continue their start to the season, without setbacks… While Paris will have to show their heads again to be in its place with the reception of Hapoel Tel-Aviv this Wednesday at the EuroCup.
