#Italy: Perugia defend their home court to take a 2-1 lead in the finals!2 min read
Yesterday evening Perugia have taken the lead against Lube Civitanova in the italian playoff finals series, and it happened again: they won the game in straight sets!
Lube couldn’t find any solution at Perugia’s PalaBarton again. After failing to take one set in the first clash, they won the second game on the home court but in the third match they again failed to give a resistance against Perugia, that during the playoffs he never lost a game at home.
Yes, it was an incredible game by Perugia, especially for Leon, but Civitanova played another bad game.
Wilfredo Leon ended the game with 20 points, while Aleksandar Atanasijevic added 14. On the other side, Tsvetan Sokolov scored 14 points, but he lacked support from his other teammates….
