U-Banca Transilvania Cluj Napoca stay perfect in the 2017 LNBM Playoffs as they go up 2-0 against rival team Oradea.
The “Horia Demian” Sports Hall in Cluj was absolutely packed last night, when U-BT Cluj Napoca had their second match of the LNBM semi-finals against Oradea. Both teams played very consistently for roughly three quarters, showing that the teams had certainly improved over the first matchup, with Oradea winning quarters 1 and 3. It was however, nowhere near enough as, once more the 4th quarter belonged to Cluj and their outstanding offensive barrage.
One by one, Adamovic, Moldoveanu and Rasic broke Oradea’s heart from long range as the team slowly but surely gathered steam, to finish everything up with a 103 – 96 win. Vlad Moldoveanu went off for 20 points on a borderline shocking 78 FG% added 5 rebounds and a couple of assists, to secure the second win for Cluj in the series and the 5th straight playoff win this year.
We’re off to Oradea for game 3, and why not, a series clinching win.
