U-BT Cluj Napoca starts the 2016 – 2017 playoffs with a serious thrashing of first round opponents, Craiova, grabbing the W with 100 to 74.
Despite losing the second quarter by one point, the team nabbed all three other ones by margins of 12, 9 and 6 respectively, mostly thanks to the barrage of three pointers (16) scored by the team.
Vlad Moldoveanu lead all scorers with 16 points, 9 of which came in the form of back to back to back treys in the third quarter to completely break down what was left of Craiova’s defence. He also added 5 rebounds and 1 assist in only 23 minutes of play.
Home court advantage will prove invaluable as Cluj seeks to go up 2 – 0 on Wednesday, 12th of April.
